Avoiding Glittering Generalities in Selecting eDiscovery Software – Considering Cost: eDiscovery Best Practices

Editor’s Note: If you read our blog regularly, you know that we frequently reference my friend and CloudNine colleague Rob Robinson’s excellent blog, Complex Discovery for various industry information, including quarterly business confidence surveys, eDiscovery software and service market “mashups” and information about industry mergers and acquisitions (among other things).  We’ve been discussing aspects of on-premise and off-premise eDiscovery offerings quite a bit lately (including this recent webcast conducted by Tom O’Connor and me a few weeks ago) and Rob has written a terrific article on the subject which he has graciously allowed me to publish here.  This is the fifth part of his multi-part article (parts 1, 2, 3 and 4 here, here, here and here) – we have published it in a series over the past couple of weeks.  Enjoy! – Doug

Considering Cost

“In economics, one of the most important concepts is ‘opportunity cost’ – the idea that once you spend your money on something, you can’t spend it again on something else.” Malcom Turnbull

Budgetary constraints are a common hurdle for law firms and legal departments seeking to address the legal, technological, and business elements of eDiscovery. This economic constraint is compounded by the lack of consistency, predictability, and transparency in the pricing of many software offerings, regardless of whether they are on-premise or off-premise, or based on emerging or mature technologies.

As law firms and legal departments strive to select the best solutions for their particular eDiscovery challenges, it is important for them to be able to compare and contrast the pros and cons of different offerings. While many vendors publicly present detailed offering attributes regarding security, capability, and complexity, many do not share public information on pricing and pricing models. Given the fact that budgetary constraints continue to be one of the leading elements impacting the conduct of discovery, by publicly publishing pricing, vendors can help simplify the eDiscovery decision-making process by removing one of the most common concerns early in the evaluation process. That concern being “how much is this going to cost.”

Additionally, just as many software providers seek to integrate the technology in their offerings to simplify discovery, prudent providers are now combining on-premise and off-premise pricing elements within their overall offering to simplify the software procurement process. An example of this pricing integration is the packaging of an overall solution that contains elements of both on-premise and off-premise offerings available for a prescribed timeframe at a single, understandable, and predictable cost.

Quick Takeaway: Given the fact that most eDiscovery software providers understand the cost of delivering their solutions to the market, it seems reasonable for those in the eDiscovery ecosystem to be able to request and expect to receive simplified pricing from providers. This simplified pricing should account for all elements of a software offering, regardless of whether it is on-premise, off-premise, or a combination of the two. Pricing should also be able to be provided for individual projects or time and volume defined subscriptions, trading length of user commitment for user cost benefits.

So, what do you think?  What factors do you consider when evaluating and selecting eDiscovery software?  Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.

CloudNine and Compliance Enable eDiscovery Automation and Acceleration for Fortune 200 Client

Combination of Outpost for Relativity Technology and Discovery-as-a-Service Platform Simplifies Discovery for Leading U.S. Company

Houston, Texas (PRWEB) October 10, 2017

CloudNine, the eDiscovery Company (cloudnine.com), partnering with Compliance Discovery Solutions, today highlighted the successful delivery to a leading U.S. company of a jointly developed solution that combines the speed and efficiency of self-service eDiscovery with the power and precision of the industry’s leading legal review platform.

Born of the technology partnership announced between CloudNine and Compliance in early 2017, the joint solution integrates CloudNine’s Outpost for Relativity technology with Compliance’s Discovery-as-a-Service (DaaS) platform featuring Relativity, to provide self-service ingestion and processing of data directly into an optimized hosted Relativity environment. Delivered from the security of a private, protected cloud environment, a unique attribute amongst the different types of cloud offerings, this solution automates and accelerates the complete discovery process, saving the Fortune 200 client time and money while increasing the power and precision of the legal department’s processing, analytics and review capability.

“Today’s corporations are actively examining how to automate and accelerate their eDiscovery efforts while at the same time protecting their investments in technology and training,” shared Marc Zamsky, COO of Compliance. “Our jointly developed solution with CloudNine was recently deployed by a Fortune 200 legal department to help automate much of their eDiscovery process with the attributes of self-service capability while continuing their use of Relativity. This solution protected the company’s financial and institutional knowledge investment in eDiscovery while adding additional workflow and economic efficiencies, allowing the company to increase in effectiveness while reducing costs. This win-win proposition is one our clients are increasingly asking for, and we are excited to be able to meet their needs through our efforts with CloudNine.”

“Facing the challenge of increasing volumes of data coupled with omnipresent budgetary constraints, corporations are many times caught between a rock and a hard place as they seek to increase eDiscovery capability while decreasing costs,” noted Brad Jenkins, CEO of CloudNine. “Integrating our automation technology with Compliance’s proven discovery platform is helping clients manage needs and budgets while still being able to take advantage of advanced technologies that can help them improve eDiscovery efficiencies.  The recent successful deployment of our jointly developed solution with Compliance within the legal department of a Fortune 200 company truly validates the need for the solution and our ability to jointly deliver such an important offering to the market.”

The CloudNine and Compliance Solution

The joint CloudNine and Compliance eDiscovery technology solution consists of three key elements:

+ CloudNine’s Outpost for Relativity Technology
+ Compliance’s Discovery-as-a-Service Platform
+ Compliance’s Hosted Relativity Environment

CloudNine’s Outpost eDiscovery automation integration with Relativity provides users with a tool that accelerates the upload, ingestion, and processing of electronically stored information (ESI). This capability allows users to ingest ESI directly from their desktops immediately and automatically move it into Compliance’s DaaS Managed Services Platform, streamlining workflows for corporate and law firm eDiscovery practitioners.

Compliance’s integrated DaaS platform delivers a complete eDiscovery technology and infrastructure solution. The platform allows customers to gain and maintain control of their eDiscovery efforts with best-of-breed technology without the need for additional investment in software, hardware, infrastructure, or dedicated internal resources.

Compliance’s Hosted Relativity Environment provides clients with the power and precision of Relativity for legal review from an optimized hosting environment.

The comprehensive solution is delivered from the security of a private, protected cloud, providing the access and economic efficiencies of a public cloud deployment with the added protection of a private data center environment. This added level of security enables clients to know exactly where the data is at all times from both a virtual and physical perspective and is an industry differentiator given the proliferation of pure public cloud eDiscovery platform deployments that are challenged by the increasing legal and regulatory requirements around data privacy and security.

Considering Complexity

“Simplicity does not precede complexity, but follows it.” Alan Perlis

The ability of eDiscovery software to deal with data complexity such as being able to ingest and process an increasing number of data formats is one of the most important challenges faced by eDiscovery professionals today. In fact, according to the Summer 2017 eDiscovery Business Confidence Survey, almost 22% of 101 eDiscovery ecosystem respondents highlighted that the challenge of increasing types of data would have the biggest impact on their business during the next six months.

In facing this challenge, many organizations have employed a combination of software offerings, integrated through workflow, to address both non-complex and complex data in their discovery efforts. One example of this combinatorial approach to solving this specific challenge is to employ an off-premise, SaaS-based offering using a private cloud approach based on emerging technology and then leveraging an on-premise, mature eDiscovery processing engine to address volume and file format challenges not able to be addressed by the off-premise platform. This combination approach takes advantage of the speed and cost benefits of the cloud to deal with a majority of eDiscovery volume and file format challenges and the robustness of a mature on-premise offering to address complexity challenges presented by high volumes of data and an increasing number of file formats. While many software providers highlight the fact that their specific offering can handle all eDiscovery challenges, their assertion may have limits. Those limits being that it may take much more time to complete high volume and non-mainstream file format related requests than with the prudent approach of a combination of on-premise and off-premise offerings offering a balance of emerging and technology.

Quick Takeaway: With the complexity of many eDiscovery challenges, a combination of software solutions may be required to accomplish certain complex task requirements satisfactorily. These combinations of solutions may include on-premise and off-premise offerings working in a complementary fashion. Given that most organizations will face a degree of complexity at some point that cannot be solved by a single eDiscovery solution, it seems reasonable to make offering selections that do not prevent efficient interoperability with other platforms.

Thursday, we will address the last area of evaluation, providing a consideration of cost.

So, what do you think?  What factors do you consider when evaluating and selecting eDiscovery software?  Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
