Size of eDiscovery Matters is Key When Selecting an eDiscovery Platform: eDiscovery Best Practices

Size matters when you’re sizing up your matters! See what I did there? 😉 This post from Avansic discusses how size of eDiscovery matters is key when selecting an eDiscovery platform.

The post Sizing Up Your eDiscovery Matters discusses how eDiscovery matters come in all shapes and sizes and regularly change from their initially estimated scope. Not only that, but there are many ways to judge the size of a matter: the number of custodians, the number of devices, the number of documents, and gigabyte size. These include information that comes from your clients and from what has been produced to you.

As Avansic notes, the primary key to selecting an eDiscovery platform is the presentation and organization of data within the platform. The secondary key is accessibility to advanced tools to reduce the set of documents requiring human review and decision making. These can include de-dupe, near dupe, email threading, clustering, and even traditional search terms and date filtering. The size of eDiscovery matters you have will impact how important each of these factors are.


So, what should you look for in a platform? And what are the cost considerations as you have larger matters? Avansic discusses that, and more, in their post here. It’s just one more click! Size of eDiscovery matters – matters! 😀

So, what do you think? Does your organization have mostly small matters, large matters or a mix of both? Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
