Legal Teams to Rely Less on IT for eDiscovery and Legal Holds

New research from Aberdeen shows that legal hold and collection technologies help legal teams drive down costs and become less reliant on IT for assistance. According to Aberdeen research analyst Michael Canton, “most legal teams must rely on IT for help with their initiatives, which slows these processes.” Only 27% of organizations Aberdeen surveyed have implemented direct data connectors to key applications to help with e-discovery and legal hold initiatives. The following percent of legal teams need IT help to collect data from these applications:

  • 60% for key enterprise application (e.g. CRM systems)
  • 60% for email applications
  • 58% for human resources applications

But this is changing quickly.

The legal hold and collection technologies below help legal teams drive down costs and become less reliant on IT for assistance. This graph is from new findings that will be published in January 2018 on the Aberdeen TechPro Essentials blog.

Aberdeen cites legal hold automation platforms, such as TotalDiscovery, as one of three essential e-discovery technology enablers. Learn more in Aberdeen’s special report, Key Strategies to Improve the Performance of E-Discovery Teams.
