As collaboration tools solidify their foothold in business communications and are increasingly in scope for discovery, enterprises are gaining experience in responding to discovery and are taking action to improve their readiness.
Hanzo, a technology pioneer in preserving, collecting, reviewing, and exporting dynamic, complex collaboration and web-based data, in tandem with the Association of Certified Ediscovery Specialists (ACEDS), is pleased to release the results from their second annual Collaboration Data Benchmark Report. The survey results will be released along with a downloadable report in a joint webinar on Tuesday, December 7, 2021, at 12 pm EST/9 am PST.
In 2020, its inaugural year, the survey was the first industry benchmark of collaboration data. The mission of the survey was to assess the prevalence and reliance of collaboration tools within enterprises. The survey was also an opportunity to take a pulse from the market about the organizational readiness for legal, IT, HR, and enterprise information archiving professionals to respond effectively to litigation, investigations, governing data, and managing risk now and in the future.
“The results of this survey confirm the challenges that we’re hearing from prospects and customers,” said Brad Harris, VP of Product and Service Delivery for Hanzo. “Collaboration and chat-based messaging data are voluminous, spread out across multiple applications and significantly increases the complexity and cost of identifying where relevant information may be and how to defensibly preserve and collect this information to efficiently review and produce it for discovery.”
“Since the start of the pandemic, the number of enterprises who rely on collaboration and chat messaging applications has significantly grown,” said Michael Quartararo, President of ACEDS. “It's interesting to observe that as collaboration data is being requested more in ediscovery, enterprises are taking note and adding these data types to their discovery playbooks and information governance policies. No one wants to be caught unprepared.”
Register for the joint Hanzo and ACEDS presentation of The State of Collaboration Data & Corporate Readiness. The survey results will also include a downloadable report. The panelists will discuss these important survey findings and analyze what these benchmarks suggest regarding enterprise preparedness for responding to preservation and discovery obligations.
