EDRM 2.0 Project

EDRM 2.0 Project Launched to Update Iconic Model: eDiscovery Best Practices

Last Friday, EDRM announced the launch of a new EDRM 2.0 project to update the iconic EDRM model. That’s not the only thing they announced!

EDRM is launching the project with a refreshed EDRM Model for 2023 (shown above), incorporating the latest IGRM diagram at the front with no substantive changes. EDRM is updating the model to reflect emerging use cases, new technologies and applicability worldwide.

The new EDRM 2.0 project team will build on the work of the EDRM Revision team led by project trustee, Tara Emory, Senior Vice President of Strategic Growth, Redgrave Data, the IGRM 2.0 team led by Eric Mandel of Innovative Driven and the Processing Specifications led by John Tredennick of Merlin Search Technologies and Craig Ball. The IGRM and Processing teams’ work product is available on the EDRM website. The marketing team led by Doug Kaminski of Cobra Legal Solutions, generated the newest IGRM Model. The EDRM Revision team reviewed and updated the supporting material for each aspect of the EDRM model. Additionally, Rob Robinson of ComplexDiscovery provided assistance on the fine details of the refreshed model and Robert Keeling and Dave Cohen provided review of the diagram.


EDRM is seeking those interested in leading a portion of the model’s project team or contributing to this very important community project. You reach out to info@edrm.net to engage.

As I mentioned, that’s not the only thing EDRM announced! EDRM also announced the EDRM Detroit Symposium on June 1-2, 2023 at the Hollywood Casino at Greektown in Detroit, MI.

The event kicks off June 1st, with a Cocktail Reception at the newly furbished Motown Museum in Detroit, where “you can get your eDiscovery groove on” and network with like-minded professionals and catch up with old friends. The following day should provide an “action-packed day of learning and sharing”.

Here’s the link to register. The agenda is still coming together, but I expect it will be well attended if even most of the Project Trustees and Global Advisory Council attend. It’s the first in-person EDRM meeting in several years!


So, what do you think? Are you excited about the new EDRM 2.0 project and the June Symposium? Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
