Collaboration Data Benchmarking Survey Now Open

Share this article

ACEDS and Hanzo have partnered once again to survey the market on the use of collaboration data for discovery and litigation.

In our first Annual Benchmark Report, we established the increasing importance of collaboration tools for corporate communications. We expected this trend to increase based on 55% of respondents noting they would become more reliant on collaborations tools. We also noted from the survey results that only 41% of respondents acknowledged they didn’t have a significant need to respond due to lack of requests for collaboration data.

Since we last surveyed the market, we know through various discussions, webinars, and events that more and more businesses are relying on collaboration tools such as Zoom, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, Slack, etc., especially now as an increasing number of companies continue to implement a hybrid workforce. We also know from our Case of the Week livestream events with Kelly Twigger the increased need for including collaboration data as well as social media and IoT data as part of an ESI protocol.

Given these factors, we want to know how businesses are rethinking their use of collaboration tools and how they use data for compliance and e-discovery.

We’ve created a short, multiple-choice, and anonymized survey that can be completed in just a few minutes.

Results from the survey will be shared via an ACEDS webinar sponsored by Hanzo and as a downloadable report from Affiliate News on our website.
