With companies facing an increasing amount of eDiscovery cases, and requiring more assistance to deal with the burden, a recent report from eWeek predicts the advent of functionality standardization for such solutions in 2011.
According to the report, vendors are more conscience of the growing challenges for customers when facing eDiscovery requests. Recognizing this need, more vendor products will begin offering certain email archiving and other capabilities.
This trend will also come as a result of standardized eDiscovery tests. Organizations, such as the eDiscovery Reference Model, will continue efforts to set litigation standards.
According to the eWeek report, the EDRM has a goal to "create and publish peer reviewed testing protocols and create overall testing principals for the unique requirements of the discovery lifecycle."
A recent Gartner study reflected this report's predictions. Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving also concluded that companies are putting more of an emphasis on eDiscovery functionality when selecting an email archiving solution. An increase in litigation means most companies are expecting at least basic eDiscovery support features to be included in their solutions.
