EDRM Participant Profiles: eDiscovery Trends

When EDRM announced eDiscovery Daily as an Education partner back in March (we covered it here), EDRM agreed to publish our daily posts on the EDRM site and it has been great to publish our content via the leading standards organization for the eDiscovery market!  However, another part of our agreement was for eDiscovery Daily to provide exclusive content to EDRM, including articles sharing real-life examples of organizations using EDRM resources in their own eDiscovery workflows.  Now, our first participant profile is available on the EDRM site and we’re looking for other organizations to share their EDRM experiences!

These profiles are designed to illustrate how participants and their organizations contribute to the success of EDRM as well as how those organizations use EDRM resources in their own businesses.

Our first EDRM Participant Profile Interview is with Seth Magaw. Seth currently serves Ricoh Americas Corporation as Director of eDiscovery Client Services within Ricoh Legal. He is responsible for the development and implementation of service delivery for Ricoh’s electronic discovery hosting services and enhancing the organization’s overall standing in the litigation support industry.  During Seth’s ten years at Ricoh, he has handled many eDiscovery projects, including large forensic collections, ESI and hosting projects. Prior to his current role, Seth has also served Ricoh Legal as Regional Digital Support Project Manager and Digital Sales Analyst.

Ricoh is a global technology and services company and has been a powerful partner to the legal community for more than two decades, earning the trust of clients through experience, expertise and long-term relationships.

In my interview with Seth, he provided some excellent examples of Ricoh’s participation and contributions to EDRM resources and also discussed several of the instances where Ricoh has applied EDRM models and standards within its organization.  Hopefully, the interview with Seth (as well as additional interviews with other EDRM participants to come) will help educate eDiscovery professionals as to how they can use EDRM resources within their own organizations.

The link to Seth’s interview on the EDRM site is here.  I hope you will check it out.

If you are a participant of EDRM and would like to be profiled (or would like to recommend a current EDRM participant to be profiled), please contact George Socha (george@edrm.net), Tom Gelbmann (tom@edrm.net) or me (daustin@cloudnincloudnine.comm) to arrange a profile interview with me to be published on the EDRM site.  We would love for you to share your experiences with EDRM and its resources!

So, what do you think?  Are you an EDRM member and want your organization to be profiled?  Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
