Ediscovery Buyer’s Checklist: Doing Your Due Diligence Before You Take the Plunge

With a number of ediscovery players currently in the market, legal professionals are test-driving various new technologies in the hopes of finding a solution that will address their needs today and well into the future. Unfortunately, some organizations treat the selection of an ediscovery solution as a transaction: a means to an end. But since ediscovery is an increasingly critical component of business operations, selecting a solution should be viewed less as a one-time transaction and more like entering into a long-term relationship with a trusted partner. However, the process of identifying the right ediscovery solution is notoriously tricky.

Buyers of the technology often find themselves at a disadvantage when trying to evaluate a wide selection of vendors, navigate an ever-growing list of capabilities, and understand how to apply them to different use cases.
