M365 Teams collections are already challenging corporate eDiscovery and provider teams with hidden SharePoint and OneDrive sites. Today’s Major Change Update Notification (MC261534 - reproduced at end for non-admins) covers the June-July roll out of Roadmap ID 81945 that dramatically expands custodian’s ability to associate existing/other Teams sites and automatically create private channel sites. More importantly, non-admin custodians are losing the ability to manually set [...]
Teams transcripts are not currently available in M365 Content Search, eDiscovery or via the Graph API. As previously blogged about, Microsoft is busy consolidating the Microsoft 365 architecture to improve search and other functionality. There are obvious issues with working on the car while your customers are driving it, even when it is the most efficient solution. As of October 2020, the default Teams video [...]
Relativity’s acquisition of TextIQ is being well covered by eDiscovery and mainstream media. My burning question was how TextIQ’s analytics meshed with Relativity’s Content Analyst (CAAT) acquired in 2016. The Relativity team graciously took a fast call to give me their perspectives on how this will benefit Relativity customers. First – expansion of analytic breadth and usage cases CAAT’s core is based on Latent Semantic [...]
A peer with a looming deadline messaged me yesterday to ask if I knew of any way to export Advanced eDiscovery (AED2) collections without processing them into a review set. Despite a vague recollection from the Spring 2021 AED webinar of a MSFT PM saying that a ‘direct to export’ collection feature was on the road map I could not find confirmation. At this point [...]
Last year I found and published eDiscovery/Content search errors related to Microsoft 365’s ongoing changes to tenant search infrastructure and the new version of Advanced eDiscovery (AED). I have recently encountered similar AED search issues after another way of upgrades was rolled out to new clients. Given the monstrous global scale of corporate M365 adoption, it is entirely possible that this is the same rolling [...]
My thanks to those of you who checked on me regarding the publishing pause. I am managing a family loss this week and should be able to resume my daily parsing of feeds and writing next week. Take care of each other and do your estate planning before you put that burden on your own family. Greg
Microsoft’s Information & Protection teams are rolling out Advanced eDiscovery(AED) updates at a remarkable rate. The product team’s April 7th webinar and presentation deck has not yet been published, but I wanted to share some perspectives on how these updates may impact AED users. The pandemic has driven E5 license upgrades and features to support remote employees, which makes AED usage more practical for many [...]
eDiscovery Related Markets My thanks to the peers who took the time to question my belief that the eDiscovery market has always been undervalued or mis-defined in annual market sizing reports. I do not doubt the effort and diligence of analysts, marketing teams and consultants who have aggregated public and best available private revenue numbers from eDiscovery tech and service companies. Instead, I [...]
I believe that Silver Lake’s reported $3.6B pre-IPO minority investment in Relativity means that every analyst firm sizing of the core eDiscovery market is and always has been dead wrong. My friend Rob Robinson conveniently publishes an annual eDiscovery Market Size Mashup averaging all the published analyst numbers together. These wise and trained market analyst projections average just $3.76B for 2021 eDiscovery software and $7.63B in services. Really? Maybe if [...]
Disdain and frustration fills the 256 page opinion from US District Judge Iain D. Johnston sanctioning defense counsel and defendant. The Gibbons Law Alert summary manages to convey some of this, rightfully calling it “a veritable Keystone Kops series of discovery errors and misrepresentations spanning several years.” Judge Johnston’s righteous ire over counsel’s ‘indifference’ and ‘incompetence’ regarding the defendant’s behavior that resulted in incomplete productions [...]
