Their new white paper (The Data Avalanche: 7 Readiness Steps to Address Complex eDiscovery Data Challenges and available for download here) sets the stage by stating this:

One of the most famous quotes in the famous ancient Chinese book “The Art of War” by Sun Tzu is “Every battle is won or lost before it is ever fought,” which illustrates the importance of planning and preparation to achieve a state of readiness before battle. Traditionally tied to litigation where there is an opponent in the case, readiness for eDiscovery (or the lack thereof) has often put litigants in a position to win (or lose) a battle “before it is ever fought.”

However, eDiscovery applies today to a variety of legal use cases, including investigations, data privacy requests, incident response, and more – for which the stakes are high. What are organizations “battling” in those use cases? Their own data. Organizations are drowning in an “avalanche” of data today, with enterprise data volumes, on average, doubling every 2 years.

So, how do you keep from drowning in data? By being ready for it. In this whitepaper, Casepoint provides 7 readiness steps to conquer the data avalanche and emerge victorious in your legal use cases. Key Takeaways include:

  • How to achieve a state of readiness to conquer the oncoming avalanche of data.
  • Ways you can keep the pace with changing requirements and increasing data sources.
  • Steps you can take today to refine your data governance program and data management policies.
