Single Pane of Glass and Addressing eDiscovery Workflows: eDiscovery Best Practices

I like the analogy of providing a “single pane of glass” to address the complexity of eDiscovery today! This article from Ligl discusses how today’s technology must be nimble and flexible to do so.

The article (How LIGL Tackles the eDiscovery Workflow All from a Single Pane of Glass, written by Alex Chatzistamatis and available here) discusses how “our beloved EDRM can be challenging when trying to create an end-to-end solution. There are lots of data sources, lots of people, lots of process, lots of technology, lots of lots of things. In order to really provide a ‘single pane of glass’, technology must be nimble and flexible.”

Alex also discusses that while emails are still the most common data source, but short message format data like MS Teams and Slack are more popular than ever before, productivity files are still part of nearly every case, and the list continues to grow. Microsoft Teams alone had nearly doubled usage between March and April 2020 and over 70% of Fortune 500 companies subscribed to it during those twelve months, due to COVID.

That’s a pretty compelling stat! So, how can eDiscovery teams provide that single pane of glass that enables them to initiate “one-click automation”. And what functions are automated as part of that process? Check out their post here to find out! eDiscovery can be a “pain”, so you need to provide a “pane”! See what I did there? 😉

So, what do you think? How do you automate eDiscovery workflows? Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
