Currently the eDiscovery process in many organizations is similar to treating a broken leg with pain killers. Sure the pain killers will treat the near term pain but in the end they are simply addressing the symptom, when the pain killers wear off the pain always comes back. The current eDiscovery methodology is largely an event driven process built upon addressing each new matter as it arises. The growing complexity of managing data within organizations has made the process of responding to document requests a significant challenge fraught with risk, staggering costs, and unnecessary potential for exposure. Many organizations struggle to define eDiscovery as a business process and as a result process refinement and analysis are typically on a case by case basis. The complexity of records management and that lack of clearly defined processes has left organizations with an inability to budget and forecast effectively with little to no predictability from matter to matter. Many organizations continue to react to the symptoms of eDiscovery by purchasing expensive technology to manage costs, however without clear cut requirements, consistent workflow evaluation, and organizational buy-in, companies will continue to treat the symptoms and deal with the associated challenges.
