Then every eDiscovery platform and M365 added simple Legal Hold notification features to check that RFP box.

Nadella laid out his vision of ‘Citizen Developers’ using Low Code/No Code (LCNC) tools to create business applications in his 2017 book, Hit Refresh. eDiscovery tools and practitioners are already struggling to keep [...]

Why Not Just Use Microsoft?

Microsoft’s transformation from on-premise enterprise to global cloud omni-platform has CXO’s asking “Why not just use Microsoft?” As a former product manager (mid-2000’s) for enterprise #Infogov and #ediscovery products that delivered mature features and clear ROI it was easy to answer that question.
