Here’s Your Chance to Hear Experts’ Views on eDiscovery Business Confidence: eDiscovery Trends

Earlier this week, we covered results from the ACEDS and Complex Discovery Summer 2016 eDiscovery Business Confidence Survey, which was conducted last month with the results published on Rob Robinson’s terrific Complex Discovery site (in my post, I focused on trends over the past three surveys to see how the responses have varied from quarter to quarter).  Now, you can hear experts comment on the results of the survey and their thoughts about the state of eDiscovery business in general!

This time, there were 168 total respondents to the survey, which is more than double the number of respondents as the Spring survey.  In fact, there twelve were more respondents than the first two surveys combined.  Obviously, sponsorship from ACEDS and promotion from EDRM, LTPI, Masters Conference, and Women in eDiscovery helped increase the number of respondents dramatically.  The end result is perhaps the most meaningful eDiscovery Business Confidence Survey results yet.

Next Thursday, September 15, ACEDS will be hosting a webinar (sponsored by CloudNine) regarding the survey.  During this one hour presentation and discussion led by ACEDS Executive Director Mary Mack, expert panelists will share and discuss the results of this quarterly survey. The discussion will feature eDiscovery leaders including George Socha, Co-Founder of EDRM and Managing Director of Thought Leadership at BDO, Eric Mandel, Managing Member at Indicium Law PLC and Member of the Board for LTPI and me.  We will not only take a look at this survey in general, we will also break down the results within different response groups (e.g., providers, law firms, corporations, etc.) and compare the results of this survey to those of past surveys to discuss changes in trends.

The webinar will be conducted at 1:00 pm ET (which is 12:00 pm CT, 11:00 am MT and 10:00 am PT).  Oh, and 5:00 pm GMT (Greenwich Mean Time).  If you’re in any other time zone, you’ll have to figure it out for yourself.  Click on the link here to register for the webinar.  Hope to see you there!
