Migrating eDiscovery to the Cloud: eDiscovery Trends

Cloud migration is happening across enterprises and that includes eDiscovery. This article from ProSearch discusses tips for migrating eDiscovery to the cloud.

The article on Legaltech® News (Migrating eDiscovery to the Cloud: Plan for Success, written by Adarsh Haltore) notes that over 60% of all corporate data is stored in the cloud (up from 30% just seven years ago) and presents seven tips to consider as you prepare to make the move. Here’s one of them:

Select a Cloud-based SaaS eDiscovery Platform

In preparation for a move to the cloud, selection of a cloud-based SaaS platform is the first key decision. Check the level of compatibility between the on-premises application and the target cloud platform.

Consider the destination cloud model. The eDiscovery cloud platform may be a shared, multitenant instance, or a dedicated instance. If it is a multitenant instance, it will be important to understand how data is segregated between various clients.

Identify features that will be needed in the cloud application. Support for data from collaborative applications such as Teams and Slack is important for most organizations.
