Collaboration Platforms in Large Enterprises

Collaboration Platforms in Large Enterprises Are Important. Here’s Why: eDiscovery Best Practices

In his latest post Jim Gill of Hanzo tells us that collaboration platforms in large enterprises are important and tells us WHY they’re important!

In the article (How Important Are Collaboration Platforms In Large Enterprises (And How Does This Affect Ediscovery), available here), Jim discusses that in the 2022 Collaboration Data Benchmarking Report from Hanzo, just over a third (38%) of organizations said that they could not live without collaboration tools, while another 35% said that some of their teams could not live without collaboration tools.

This dramatic increase in organizations’ reliance on platforms started with the COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing expansion of remote work. But collaboration app user expansion has continued each year since 2020, and there’s no doubt they’re here to stay.


Why are collaboration platforms beneficial? According to Hanzo’s survey respondents, the perceived benefits of collaboration platforms include:

  • Larger distribution
  • Ease of use compared to email
  • Availability on mobile devices
  • Allow users to easily create groups for projects
  • Provide project visibility (like a digital bulletin board)
  • Increase productivity through multitasking
  • Easier to apply data governance policies compared with email

Which platform is “dominant” in terms of use? What are organizations worried about when it comes to managing collaboration data during eDiscovery? And how can organizations overcome eDiscovery challenges associated with collaboration data? Read Jim’s blog post here to find out! It’s just one click! 😉
