Tech Trends That Will Shape 2023: eDiscovery
By Tim Harrison CEO and Founder of Arkus Consulting - a premier global eDiscovery consulting practice at the forefront of some of the world’s most sensitive and complex eDiscovery matters.
We are all aware of data and we are all creators of data. Long gone are the days of piles of paperwork - they have become mountains of digital data. The Global DataSphere is expected to reach 101 ZB in 2022 and more than double in size from 2022 to 2026. One zettabyte is equal to a trillion gigabytes. With the enormity of data now being generated, the process of identifying relevant electronic documents within litigation matters is vital and more complex than ever.
In 2023, legal teams will need experts, specialists, and the best technology to support eDiscovery. As well as the best global tech available, a people-oriented, consultative approach will be needed to find the finer details within large data sets.
From simple emails through to more complex communication pathways, each element that could be relevant or not relevant can be identified earlier in the process safely and securely, so that relevant information is not missed, and the right outcome is reached.
The time is here for the legal world to embrace data and tech megatrends. Well known cases like Wagatha Christie are simply the beginning.
