Optimizing People, Process, and Technology to Minimize the Total Cost of Discovery
In today’s business environment, organizations create huge volumes of electronically stored information every day. And while corporate legal departments struggle with how to preserve, manage, and use that information effectively in discovery, the pressure to reduce legal spend continues to increase.
In a dynamic session at LegalTech New York 2014, which DiscoverReady is pleased to present as an on-demand webinar, three leading corporate e-discovery practitioners explored how legal departments can better understand the primary factors that drive cost – people, process, and technology. By optimizing each of these factors, the discovery process becomes more predictable, efficient, and cost-effective.
The panel discusses issues such as:
- What resource should perform each task in the discovery process?
- Is each participant in the process working to core competencies?
- Is the process defined and documented, and does it appropriately balance efficiency and risk-reduction?
- Is the organization taking full advantage of available technologies, consistent with its risk tolerance?
