Here’s How You Can Catch our Webinar on How Automation is Revolutionizing eDiscovery: eDiscovery Trends

We had a terrific turnout for our special webinar on Wednesday conducted by Rob Robinson and me titled Faster, Cheaper, Better: How Automation is Revolutionizing eDiscovery, hosted by the Organization of Legal Professionals (OLP)!  But, not all of you could make it.  We get it – you’re busy.  No worries, you can check it out on demand within this post!

During the webinar, we started off with a history lesson as I discussed the historical application of automation in the discovery process, focused on the application of artificial intelligence technology through the evolution and judicial acceptance of technology assisted review.  I then talked about the emergence of artificial intelligence technology in other areas, including pre-litigation.

Rob then discussed the drivers for eDiscovery automation in terms of the biggest challenges faced by organizations today in managing eDiscovery, as well as the business opportunity of where the eDiscovery market is heading and how automation is helping drive the growth in the market.  Rob also discussed the evolution of eDiscovery technology and he walked through a brief exercise on how to consider and compare eDiscovery offerings to meet your needs.

Having set the framework for understanding the drivers and offerings in the market, Rob then defined eDiscovery automation, explaining the difference between task automation and process automation and providing examples of each.

With that framework established, I then walked through an example of task and process automation using CloudNine’s eDiscovery automation platform to demonstrate the automation of signing up for an account, uploading data for processing, as well as culling, searching and reviewing that data – all without any human interaction required!  We finished the webinar by sharing references to several good articles on the topic of eDiscovery automation and answering several good questions from the audience about the state of automation in the industry and other related topics.
