Assessing Providers? The New Worldwide eDiscovery Services MarketScape from IDC

According to Ryan O’Leary, senior research analyst, Legal, Risk, and Compliance Solutions at IDC, as highlighted in the public abstract of the newly published IDC eDiscovery services vendor assessment, “The eDiscovery services market has long been dominated by large office-centric review providers that were able to quickly scale up review and solve problems by throwing bodies at it. This was changing before the pandemic. The pandemic kicked the change into overdrive. Services providers need to be able to provide full forensic collections without sending resources onsite.”
