Case law around predictive coding evolved and, as a result, more and more organizations began experimenting with the practice.  Companies began to take information governance (IG) seriously, though they are still lacking when it comes to execution on projects.  For example, while over 60% of the respondents to our IG survey have documented legal hold processes, less than half actually track those processes.  Still, though, companies are beginning to take IG seriously, with more than half of the respondents to our defensible deletion survey indicating actual deletion is happening.
