It’s 2020! Here’s a Current Survey and a Major Conference To Look Forward To: eDiscovery Trends

Happy New Year!  We’re back and better than ever, ready for not only a new year, but a new decade!  So, what’s on tap for the new year?  Here’s a survey currently underway and a major conference coming up in early February – both very familiar to you if you’re familiar with eDiscovery trends.  ;o)

It’s Winter, so it must be time for another eDiscovery Business Confidence survey from ComplexDiscovery!  Believe it or not, this is the fifth year and the seventeenth quarterly survey, and, since January 2016, more than 1,771 individual responses to the survey have been received from legal, business, and technology professionals across the eDiscovery ecosystem.  It’s a non-scientific quarterly survey designed to provide insight into the business confidence level of individuals working in the eDiscovery ecosystem. The core survey consists of nine multiple-choice questions focused on factors related to the creation, delivery, and consumption of eDiscovery products and services. Additionally, the survey includes three multiple-choice questions focused on the trajectory of key operational business metrics.  Literally takes 1-2 minutes to complete.  You can complete the Winter survey here – hurry, as the survey will close by mid-month.

If you follow our blog, you know that we’ve been covering the survey since the beginning and we will continue to cover it this year as well.  Here’s a link to our coverage of the Fall 2019 survey.

The major conference to look forward to is, of course, Legaltech®, which is part of Legalweek and will be held from February 4 through 6 at the New York Hilton Midtown.  As usual, it will include a slew of educational sessions and a ton of legal technology exhibitors, including (of course) CloudNine (shameless plug warning!).  We will be showcasing some exciting new developments in our Concordance®, LAW, Explore and Review products.  And, we have some exciting brand new products we will also be showcasing.  And, we may have other exciting news to share as well.  More on that coming soon!  And, of course, eDiscovery Daily will be covering the event and will provide a preview later this month and a wrap-up after the conference.

And, at Legaltech, we’re once again excited to be co-sponsoring the annual #DrinkswithDougandMary cocktail reception with Mary Mack, Kaylee Walstad and the rest of the EDRM team!  This is our fourth year and we’re grateful to Marc Zamsky and Compliance Discovery for co-sponsoring as well.  It will once again be at Ruth’s Chris Steak house and will happen Wednesday, February 5 from 4-6pm.  You can register to attend here. Last year, we never closed registration and we “broke” the meeting room upstairs, so we’re taking over even more of the restaurant this year!  Come join us!

So, what do you think?  Are you attending Legaltech this year?  Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
