Fourth Annual Hanzo

Fourth Annual Hanzo + ACEDS Collaboration Data Survey: eDiscovery Trends

Collaboration apps are more popular than ever, which means more data to discover from them! With that in mind, Hanzo and ACEDS have launched the fourth annual Hanzo + ACEDS Collaboration Data Survey!

The 16-question survey (with two additional questions optional) is once again comprised mostly of multiple-choice questions, and only takes a couple of minutes to complete.  It covers topics including:

  • Your organization’s 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 and confidence in defensible preservation
  • 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

The questions for the fourth annual Hanzo + ACEDS survey are essentially the same as last year, which enables Hanzo & ACEDS to not just track this year’s trends, but year-over-year trends as well. Déjà vu all over again!


Working with ACEDS, Hanzo seeks to capture insights from those in the workplace and understand the impact of their experiences with collaboration data management. Their focus is to gain knowledge about any challenges that corporate legal teams encounter in relation to these new data types and their relationship with eDiscovery and information governance.

Here’s the link to the survey.  Please consider taking the time to complete it – it only takes a couple of minutes! And you can get a copy of the fourth annual Hanzo + ACEDS survey results if you provide your email address at the end!

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.
