The Spring 2020 eDiscovery Business Confidence Survey

This is the eighteenth time the quarterly eDiscovery Business Confidence Survey has been conducted by ComplexDiscovery. It is also the first time the survey has been conducted in a time of worldwide crisis. The current global coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is altering life as we know it. It is also altering the business environment of everyone in the eDiscovery ecosystem.

As your schedule permits, I would like to kindly ask you to consider sharing your current confidence in the business of eDiscovery by taking the Spring 2020 eDiscovery Business Confidence Survey.

Access the Survey Directly from Google Forms

This spring survey will provide important insight into the business confidence of executive leaders, operational managers, and tactical execution professionals as we collectively seek to understand the impact of the current global COVID-19 pandemic on the business of eDiscovery.

The survey consists of only 12 multiple choice questions and can be completed in a matter of minutes.

Your opinion is important in helping form a complete picture of the business confidence of those operating in the realm of eDiscovery and your responses to this survey are fully anonymized, with no individual or organizational contact data, demographics, or answers being shared. And upon closing of the survey, I will send you a direct link to the published results.

Thank you for your consideration, be well, and be safe.
