Migrated from eDJGroupInc.com. Author: Mikki Tomlinson.

The round-table format makes for a conversational dialogue between moderators and attendees.   The Houston meeting spawned discussions that ranged from theoretical to take-away practice points.  Several thorny eDiscovery issues and seemingly unanswerable questions bubbled to the top throughout the one and a half day program.  Here is my highlighted list of those topics:

•    Is information governance truly achievable and, if so, how do you get there?
•    Bring your own device and cloud trends are muddying the “possession, custody and control” waters.
•    How do you effectively manage eDiscovery in small cases without busting the budget?
•    Attorney competency in eDiscovery.
•    Data in the EU.
•    How do we as an industry better educate those outside of the “Sedona Bubble”?

While I cannot say that there was necessarily any resolution to these thorny issues, there certainly was a lively and helpful exchange.   Interested in partaking in the discussion?   Please join me at the next ECI Corporate Exchange event in Los Angeles on December 11-12, 2012.
