27.7 Billion Reasons Why Collaboration Apps Have Become So Important in eDiscovery: eDiscovery Trends

This week’s blog post for Ipro’s blog discusses just how important collaboration apps have become in eDiscovery.

If you missed the webinar (Taming the eDiscovery and Governance Dragon: Experts Discuss Slack, Microsoft Teams and Other Collaboration Platforms) that I did last month with Ipro colleagues Charles Nguyen (Director of Strategic Partnerships), Frederic Bourget (VP Products) and Jim Gill (Content Marketing Manager), you can still watch it here – it was great and I learned a lot from the other panelists! 

During the webinar, I relayed my Yogi Berra analogy as to why collaboration apps have become so important in eDiscovery today.  If you haven’t gotten a chance to watch it yet (you will, won’t you?!?), you can check out the post to get the essence of the analogy there.  You can also find out how this topic relates to Dr. Evil and Larry David.  As posts go, it was “pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty good.”  😉


So, what are the 27.7 billion* reasons why collaboration apps have become important in eDiscovery? And, how do Yogi Berra, Dr. Evil and Larry David factor in?  You can find out on Ipro’s blog here.  Don’t worry, it’s just one extra click! 🙂

Speaking of Ipro posts, they just published a look back at this year’s eDiscovery Blues comic strip posts for the year on Monday that combine amusing comic strips with articles highlighting insights and best-practices across the legal technology spectrum written by Jim Gill.  Check it out!

So, what do you think?  Is your organization addressing routinely addressing collaboration apps as part of eDiscovery?  Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.

*Dangit, I should have referenced Carl Sagan too!  “Billions and billions”… 😉
