Retaining Teams Meetings – Worth the Risk?

My Inbox blew up with Teams/Zoom meeting policy questions during the 2020 Pandemic exodus. Clients old and new wanted to enable remote business continuity while managing the potential risk they perceived in meeting recordings and transcripts. Frankly, most of my global corporate clients blocked recordings and are just now re-evaluating that decision as employees struggle with meeting overload. #Microsoft moved quickly to shift the [...]

Real World eDiscovery Wisdom from Digital Mountain

#2 – What is interesting to me is how customers focus on negotiating lower processing/hosting prices while ancillary tech/service prices (collections, analytics, classification/organization, productions, etc.) are often ignored.

The Great Resignation, Return or Reshuffle? Part 2

A recent Zapier survey on the future of work polled 600 #knowledgeworkers from SMB companies. 64% said that remote work makes them more productive. While they feel more productive, how can remote professionals demonstrate that productivity without giving up their privacy?   The Great Reshuffle is about the evolving employee-employer relationship more than just where we perform that work. Monitoring utilization, security and work [...]

Contemplating Collaboration Components and Custodianship

Google Docs hit the consumer market in 2010, providing one of the first widely available web collaboration platforms that allowed multiple people to work on the same document simultaneously. The eDJ Group team monitored the slow adoption of GSuite by corporations and wondered when the use of web collaboration tech would seriously impact significant #eDiscovery collections.

eDiscovery and New Cloud Apps

The Pandemic driven move to hybrid and remote work has created an explosion of apps addressing the myriad challenges facing digital professionals. Once upon a time I knew every search engine, indexing technology, task manager, note taking or similar productivity product on the market. Those days are long gone. Clients and peers regularly ask my opinion of tools that I have never heard of. [...]

LegalWeek 2022 eDJ Briefings – Take 1

For some of the new readers, eDJ Briefings are a chance to catch up with the latest from providers kind enough to sit down with me and talk candidly. At Legal Week I no longer do formal presentations or demos. Instead I ask execs to give me the top three points they would like to convey to you and the market. We sometimes get [...]

Zoom Boom: Great Name for the Explosion of Meeting ESI Content

Amongst the rest of Wendell’s 2022 eDiscovery trends is the Pandemic WFH driven explosion of online meeting content. Since the beginning of the pandemic, Zoom has grown from 10M to 300M daily users and Teams from 20M to 250M+ monthly users. My best recovering-analyst interpretation of this growth and Zoom’s recent slump is that Zoom’s usability gave them the edge in the B2C market [...]

100% Retention as a Knowledge Strategy – Case Study

The majority of corporate professional knowledge workers shifted to remote or hybrid working in 2020. Working from home has challenged many HR, legal and compliance departments to adapt their policies and acceptable use guidelines. Video online meetings and continuous chat channels are essential tools to keep internal/external teams virtually connected. Prior to the pandemic, most of my clients viewed meeting recordings and multi-party chat [...]
