     The eDiscovery Business Confidence Survey

    The eDiscovery Business Confidence Survey is a non-scientific quarterly survey designed to provide insight into the business confidence level of individuals working in the eDiscovery ecosystem. The term ‘business’ represents the economic factors that impact the creation, delivery, and consumption of eDiscovery products and services.

    The quarterly survey 2016 is designed to gain a general understanding of responder business confidence and may be useful for eDiscovery-related business planning. Individual answers are kept confidential, with the aggregate results to be published by ComplexDiscovery upon completion of the response period.

    What Are The Experts Saying About The Survey?

    “The business of eDiscovery is an ever-present and important variable in the equation of legal discovery,” shared Mary Mack, Executive Director of the Association of Certified eDiscovery Specialists (ACEDS). “As financial factors are a primary driver in eDiscovery decisions ranging from sourcing and staffing to development and deployment, ACEDS sees value in regularly checking the business pulse of eDiscovery professionals. The eDiscovery Business Confidence Survey provides a tool to help take that pulse on a systematic basis and ACEDS looks forward to sponsoring, participating, and reporting on the results of this salient survey each quarter.”

    In my experience, the successful conduct of eDiscovery is comprised of a balance of in-depth education, practical execution, and experience-based excellence,” highlighted George Socha, Co-Founder of the EDRM and Managing Director at BDO. “The eDiscovery Business Confidence survey being highlighted by ACEDS is one of many industry surveys that positively contributes to this balance as it provides a quarterly snapshot into the business of discovery. I highly encourage serious eDiscovery professionals to complete and consider this survey as one of their tools for understanding the business challenges and opportunities in our profession.”

    “While Canada is a smaller market north of the border, our cultural and jurisdictional differences contribute to the advancement of eDiscovery in distinct ways. This survey offers a unique opportunity for Canadian eDiscovery professionals to have their insight measured and heard.”

    “As the law and technology of eDiscovery continue to evolve, so does the need to understand the business conditions affecting the delivery of eDiscovery software and services,” shared David Horrigan, E-Discovery Counsel and Legal Content Director at kCura. “With the eDiscovery Business Confidence Survey, the industry and the profession have a valuable new resource to obtain insight into how the professionals in industry feel about the business climate for eDiscovery.”
