An e-discovery system should, at a minimum, include methods for identifying, preserving and collecting potentially relevant information in a reasonable and cost-effective manner. Companies benefit significantly in litigation from understanding their data sooner and reducing the significant cost of reviewing it. The most effective e-discovery systems will also include strategies for early case assessment and defensibly reducing the size of data populations. Emerging technologies such as predictive coding, applied correctly, facilitate a defensible approach to reducing the disproportionate review burden created by large volumes of potentially relevant ESI.
