Third Annual Hanzo

Third Annual Hanzo + ACEDS Collaboration Data Survey: eDiscovery Trends

With the recent ruling in this case, discovery of data from collaboration apps is more important than ever. With that in mind, Hanzo and ACEDS have launched the third annual Hanzo + ACEDS Collaboration Data Survey!

The third annual Hanzo + ACEDS survey is comprised of 16 mostly multiple-choice questions and only takes a couple of minutes to complete.  It covers topics including:

  • Your current primary messaging collaboration platform
  • How integral collaboration platforms are to your organization today and in 12 months
  • Retention policies for messaging collaboration content
  • Preservation of collaboration content
  • Inclusion of messaging collaboration content within the scope of discovery today and in 12 months
  • Response to requests for production and internal investigations regarding collaboration data
  • Confidence in your existing processes to efficiently collect and produce collaboration content
  • Plans to invest in a solution to defensibly preserve and/or collect collaboration data; and
  • Your biggest worry regarding your organization’s/client’s use of collaboration platforms

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and the WFH movement, collaboration platforms (like Slack) continue to grow in their regular use for enterprise communications. However, their rapid adoption has left many organizations vulnerable when it comes to incorporating these new data sources within their eDiscovery processes.


Working with ACEDS, Hanzo hopes to establish the industry benchmarks of collaboration data as a source for discovery and identify litigation readiness now and in the future.

Here’s the link to the third annual Hanzo + ACEDS survey.  Please consider taking the time to complete it – it only takes a couple of minutes!

So, what do you think?  How integral are collaboration platforms are to your organization today?  Don’t tell me, complete the survey!  And please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
