While not directly addressed in the release as a component of OpenText’s eDiscovery plans, it is reasonable to highlight that the transfer and ingestion of large data sets can be a challenge for eDiscovery practitioners, a fact highlighted in recent eDiscovery software provider announcements around data transfers.
