The NZ E-Discovery Blog  Facilitating proportionate and efficient e-discovery

But it worked in the past…

August 31st, 2017

What may have worked 10 years ago, last year, or last week may no longer be the most effective path to address your discovery requirements.

In the past, we did not face the volumes or sources of electronic information that are now present in most organisations.

We are all communicating differently than we did in the past, whilst the devices we use to communicate and store information are evolving exponentially. Experts in the industry estimate that data volumes are doubling about every 18 months to two years, so this is going to continue to be an issue.

These all pose challenges for the legal profession, but even more so if traditional methods are used to manage eDiscovery.

We no longer go to the library as our primary source of research, or go to the phone-book to find a business.

How we tackle the discovery process also needs to evolve.

There are smarter ways to address the discovery process. These smarter approaches will usually commence with investing more time at the outset of a matter with an expert to help guide you to devise a strategy that works best for you. This strategy will help you devise smarter practices and technology to tackle the challenges today’s volumes present.

It is always an option to continue with the status quo, but this will result in the discovery process continuing to be frustrating, complicated, and costly.

It does not need to be that way !
