The Report: Market Guide for E-Discovery Solutions

Published on April 7, 2021, by the research and analyst firm Gartner, the new Market Guide for E-Discovery Solutions report (G00731953) shares information and insight on the eDiscovery market and a limited number of representative software vendors and service providers. This information and insight may be useful for infrastructure and operations professionals as they consider eDiscovery solutions for their specific data discovery and legal discovery needs.

Authored by industry analyst Michael Hoeck, an author of the previous 2019 Market Guide for E-Discovery Solutions, the complete report is available for purchase from the Gartner website. Complimentary copies of the report typically can also be downloaded from the websites of eDiscovery vendors who routinely purchase rights to distribute Gartner reports.

Representative Vendors

According to the report, the vendors and providers listed in the Market Guide represent the eDiscovery solutions market because their products or services are marketed and sold specifically for eDiscovery. The author also highlights that report methodology allows for the inclusion of a limited number of vendors and providers to provide an overview of the market (as opposed to a comprehensive overview). The representative listing includes both software and services providers.

  • Software Vendors: A Listing of 18 Vendors
  • Service Providers: A Listing of 19 Providers

The number of software vendors listed as representative vendors in the 2021 report decreased by 11 vendors from the 2019 report. The number of service providers listed as representative providers in the 2021 report increased by three providers from the 2019 report.
