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.”

A (Brand) New Approach? Considering the Framework and Structure of eDiscovery Offerings

Today’s eDiscovery providers may benefit from the lessons learned in the creation of the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album by creating a concept for branding and packaging their offerings within that brand in a connected, theme-based way that represents the offerings’ promise and capability in a way that is easy to understand and remember.

This fictionalized branding approach was developed from the intellectual exercise of trying to figure out a reasonable and memorable way to descriptively highlight the promise and capabilities of offerings typically delivered by full-service eDiscovery providers. It may not be completely comprehensive or fully normalized. However, the hope of sharing this branding example is that it might help those involved in the branding and communication of eDiscovery provider services and solutions.
