For over a decade I have been proclaiming the need for eDiscovery workflows to address mobile device content. Beyond the technical challenges and extended time required to take full forensic images of custodial phones, the comingling of [...]

M365 Roadmap: January 2024

I really should have done January before the LegalWeek craziness. Microsoft made 391 new or updated roadmap items with a couple that should be on your radar. The Purview team told me to watch for the new Purview eDiscovery (Premium) legal hold reports due to hit GA end of February. This has been a pain point since the platform stopped reporting metrics on holds. [...]

eDJ Fast Take – LegalWeek 2024

LegalWeek is BACK. The crowds. The energy. Packed exhibit floor booths. If the founding legal technology conference is a market indicator, 2024 will be a boom year for eDiscovery. 2023’s atmosphere felt tentative and unsure with booths reporting dead time and reduced prospects. All three exhibit floors were packed every time I managed to make a pass. A well-known exhibitor, “We reached our event badge [...]

M365 RoadMap: December 2023

Q3 has been relatively quiet for major Purview eDiscovery releases. The primary area that eDiscovery peers should watch is the steady integration of CoPilot generative AI and Loop content across the M365 suite.

LegalWeek 2024: Evolving with the Market

Like many of you, I am filling my social/business for LegalWeek. Providers and peers should claim a briefing slot on my Booking page before they fill up. As always, I track the rough metrics on LegalWeek sponsors and exhibitors (see graphs below). Reviewing my coverage of LegalWeek 2023 has me excited to see how 2024 stacks up. Will the exhibit floor still be swamped [...]

M365 Copilot Only Available for Large Enterprises

Corporate ESI lives (and grows) in M365. I spend a lot of time researching and testing new M365 functionality to advise clients on how to meet eDiscovery, compliance and retention requirements. When my friend Jason Velasco posted his “Implement Microsoft 365 Copilot” badge, I knew that I had to pause my Purview testing to dive into Copilot. Only to determine that Copilot license currently has [...]
