Here’s an eDiscovery Buyers Guide Where You Can Actually See Videos of the Products: eDiscovery Trends

Last year, Brett Burney of Burney Consultants and Chelsey Lambert of Lex Tech Review created the 2018 eDiscovery Buyers Guide to provide education about the alternatives to help solo to medium sized firms select a solution that’s right for them.  Now, they are back with the 2019 eDiscovery Buyers Guide, which is free once again!  And, this one not only has a write-up about each of the reviewed products, it also has a video review of them too!

This year’s Buyer’s Guide is contained in a comprehensive (but easy to read) 119 page PDF document.  As noted in the Introduction, Brett and Chelsey had two goals in creating the first eDiscovery Buyers Guide:

  1. First, we wanted to provide a literal “Buyers Guide” so that lawyers could avoid the manual and inefficient processes that typically plague litigation matters today.
  2. Second, you could refer to the eDiscovery Buyers Guide to learn about products that might be helpful to your clients, or gain a better idea of the products being used by opposing counsel.

Evidently, while the first Buyers Guide was well received for its comprehensive written reviews, its readers wanted more.  So, this year they have provided a brief video review of each product as well so you can see them in action.  Clever idea!

Once again, the guide includes reviews for products in several categories, including eDiscovery Research and Case Law (with a review of eDiscovery Assistant, our go-to source for Case Law opinions), Case Management and Chronology, eDiscovery Solutions (which is by far the largest section – after all, it is an eDiscovery Buyers Guide), Audio eDiscovery and Tech to Watch.  As before, each review includes a “Why You Should Consider” the product section that sums up several key benefits of the offering and succinctly describes differentiation points.

CloudNine is once again included in the guide with Brett’s review of our CloudNine Concordance® product, which includes a snapshot of “recent developments and updates”, including our upcoming exciting new document viewer in the product.  And, as before, the Buyer’s Guide also includes several articles from key thought leaders in the industry.  And, once again, they were also nice enough to include an article from me – this time, regarding one F-A-C-T to keep in mind when selecting eDiscovery software providers.  Read it and you may look at the EDRM model differently!

Hey, this post should count for two since I wrote that article!  Maybe I can take Monday off?  Hmmm… ;o)

Regardless, as I mentioned, you can download the guide – for free! – here.

So, what do you think?  Do you have an eDiscovery solution in house?  As always, please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
