Extract from Ryan Joyce’s article “Think Upstream When Migrating Your IG and eDiscovery to the Cloud”
There’s been an evolution in every industry to moving to the cloud. But IG and eDiscovery might just be one of the last to take this leap.
With most general office data systems–including M365, Slack, G-suite, Confluence, and more–already in a cloud environment, at this point it’s not a question of if, but when more of the legal industry will move these types of software and processes as well.
