I keep an eye out for eDiscovery announcements/events that partner with core infrastructure or IG players. The upcoming webinar by Zapproved and Amazon Web Services (AWS) on Cloud E-Discovery caught my attention. Zapproved’s recent round of funding ($15M), acquisition of eCloud Collect (rebranded to Data Collect Pro) and hiring spree all signal their intent to push the ‘cloud only’ SaaS solution. Only a few players (X1 Rapid Discovery) have made the technological/business investment to make their offerings available directly from the AWS store. This webinar makes me wonder if Zapproved is headed in the same direction. What does that mean to a consumer? Imagine spinning up your own private, encrypted discovery service in Amazon with just a corporate credit card to cover the subscription and AWS costs. Most customers are not there yet, but with large Microsoft Office 365 migrations cloud SaaS eDiscovery makes sense. Take my survey on eDiscovery in the Cloud to get access to the raw survey results.
