Today’s the Day to Hear Experts Comment on the State of eDiscovery Business Confidence: eDiscovery Trends

Last week, we covered results from the ACEDS and Complex Discovery Fall 2016 eDiscovery Business Confidence Survey, which was conducted last month with the results published on Rob Robinson’s terrific Complex Discovery site.  There’s even a Canadian breakdown (which sort of sounds like Canadian bacon when you say the words out loud) here.  Today, you can attend a webinar to hear experts comment on the results of the survey and their thoughts about the state of eDiscovery business in general!

This time, there were 113 total respondents to the survey, which is over 100 respondents for the second straight quarter.  Continued sponsorship from ACEDS and promotion from EDRM, strong>LTPI, Masters Conference, kCura and Women in eDiscovery and new Canadian sponsor Commonwealth Legal (not to mention us here at CloudNine) has helped continue to keep the number of respondents high.

At 1:00 pm ET today (12:00 pm CT, 11:00 am MT, 10:00 am PT), ACEDS will be hosting the 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 at BDO Consulting;
  • Eric P. Mandel, Managing Member at Indicium Law PLC and Member of the Board for LTPI;
  • Zach Warren, Editor in Chief of Legaltech News;
  • David Horrigan, E-Discovery Counsel and Legal Content Director at kCura;
  • Jennifer Johnson, Vice President at Commonwealth Legal

And me, of course.  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.
