Extract from Brad Harris’s article “Webinar Recap: The Results of Our Benchmark Survey on Collaboration Data and Corporate Readiness”
This fall, the team at Hanzo and the Association of E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS) conducted a benchmark survey to learn how organizations were addressing what we broadly refer to as “collaboration data”—chat-based discussions and associated shared documents from platforms like Slack, Microsoft Teams, Google Chat, and more. We collected responses from a cross-section of different sizes and types of organizations, about half of which manage 10 or more ediscovery matters per month. Of the respondents, the majority—54 percent—were using Microsoft Teams. Around 70 percent described their collaboration tool as something they or their teams “can’t live without.”
In addition to releasing our findings in a report, we wanted to hear what other ediscovery experts thought. I had the great opportunity to moderate the webinar we co-hosted with ACEDS called, “The State of Collaboration Data and Corporate Readiness: Benchmark Survey Results.”. We heard from an outstanding panel well-versed in collaboration issues and learned which survey results caught their attention.
