Data Assessment in EDA Has Changed Too: eDiscovery Best Practices

My latest blog post for IPRO’s blog discusses how the definition of “early” isn’t the only thing that has changed about EDA, data assessment in EDA has changed too!

The data that’s being assessed – and how it is being assessed – has been changing considerably in recent years. eDiscovery used to be easy, or at least easier. Most of it was historically focused on discovery of emails and office files. That’s it.

Today, data is everywhere. Remote work has shattered the idea of “on-premise”. Accordingly, more data than ever is in the cloud and getting to it involves connecting to many services. It’s in Microsoft Teams or SharePoint or OneDrive. Or it’s in Slack and Box and even Egnyte.

The “A” in “EDA” has also evolved. Assessment is more visual than ever, providing advanced analytics to enable you to understand your data quicker than ever.

So, what are some other reasons that data assessment in EDA has changed? And how has that shifted the order of operations of EDRM phases? You can find out on IPRO’s blog here. It’s just one extra click! 😉 The Times They Are A-Changin’!

So, what do you think? Do you agree that data assessment in EDA has changed? Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
