A First Look at Advanced E-Discovery Solutions for Corporate Legal Teams
Time: 1-2 PM EST
Description: Corporate legal teams struggle with the abundance of data in eDiscovery motions. With the explosion of data sources available and the increased frequency of internal investigations, legal teams more than ever need an eDiscovery solution that simplifies how information is collected and visualized. Additionally, as a result of big data challenges, many legal teams lack a playbook to ensure eDiscovery is managed in a low-risk, low-cost manner. With the right eDiscovery tools, organizations can benefit from greater data transparency, cost containment, and data security in every matter. BDO’s Daniel Gold, Esq. will discuss what he’s seeing within corporate legal teams and showcase BDO’s patent-pending e-discovery solution, Athenagy™. This innovative tool combines Microsoft Advanced E-Discovery and RelativityOne enterprise applications to enable businesses to easily visualize data and drive deeper insights.

A New Role Model: Reimagining the EDRM
Time: 3-4 PM EST
Description: When originally conceived, the Electronic Discovery Reference Model provided a useful guide for approaching the identification, collection, and analysis of digital data—over time becoming the primary model for the ediscovery industry. However, the EDRM requires rethinking and expansion against the backdrop of ediscovery expanding beyond a litigation-only concept to a rigorous discipline; courts and government agencies applying greater scrutiny over data governance and security practices; and attorneys utilizing a more strategic, cross-matter approach to review. How should this model be updated? Is there a more appropriate model for an era of more complex communication, data, and business challenges? EJ Bastien, Director of Discovery Programs at Microsoft, Chris Dahl, Senior Vice President, Market Solutions Group, at Lighthouse, and guest speakers will discuss how data challenges and governance are transforming the way legal professionals should approach the EDRM, thinking beyond a linear and single matter approach to review, and the future of ediscovery.
