Our e-Discovery Predictions for 2011


Not to be outdone by Clearwell Systems, Fios, Craig Ball, Recommind and everybody else making e-discovery predictions/trends-to-watch in 2011, The Posse List presents it 10.5 e-discovery (and other) predictions for 2011.

1. E-discovery vendors abandon the idea of end to end e-discovery and return to concept of “one trick pony” (“We can scan that for you but for that OCR stuff ya gotta go to our strategic gold and platinum premium channel partner buddy”).

2. In a cut-throat competition war that takes cloud computing to a new threshold, a new computing paradigm, a new dimension, a new [insert your own clichéd and overused phrase here] is born when Microsoft-Google-Autonomy began to buy up all cumulus clouds they can find. DOJ and DGCOMP launch inquiries. Climate change advocates riot in the streets …. just to riot in the streets having forgotten what the crowd sourcing text message actually said.

3. LegalTech drops title of largest “legal technology” event and renames itself “EDiscoveryTech” after Law.com survey reveals that of the 422 vendors present, 419 do e-discovery, and the other 3 are Hyundai HotWheels, Speedway Racers and Convert-A-Van who thought they were at the Javits Auto Show.

4. Not to be outdone by Recommind’s “Predictive Coding” and FTI Consulting’s “Suggestive Coding”, vendors clamor to provide “Inferred Coding” and “Looks-Related” coding.
