To say that 2020 has been an unusual year would be putting it lightly. Putting aside the personal and professional challenges we’ve all faced, this year we've seen a seismic shift in how we manage corporate discovery. This was as a result of a major technology shift that, in many organizations, happened in the course of a single day.

The rise in remote work has put digital initiatives on hyperspeed, halted major projects as courts closed and budgets were reworked, and ushered in a slew of new challenges related to new workplace collaboration tools. So what are the greatest challenges (and opportunities) that we have to look forward to in 2021?

Join our expert panel of ediscovery professionals from TMobile, Cardinal Health, and Travelers Insurance as they share their insight on what’s to come. We’ll discuss what it looks like to continue to address the aftermath of 2020, while at the same time preparing for future technology inflection points.
