The Gartner Magic Quadrant for eDiscovery Software evaluates software for the identification, preservation, collection, processing, review, analysis and production of electronically stored information (ESI) in support of the common law discovery process in litigation or other investigative proceedings.

This year, Gartner has evaluated over 20 electronic discovery software vendors to determine their capabilities, allowing Legal, IT and compliance stakeholders to determine the best software solution to meet their needs.

Highlights of the study include:

  • The demand for ediscovery technology and services continues to grow. Gartner estimates that the enterprise ediscovery software marketplace was $1.8 billion in total software revenue worldwide in 2014, an increase of 10.6% from 2013.
  • Organizations want agile and less expensive approaches to ediscovery.
  • Organizations are in the process of migrating email and documents into Office 365. Companies need to take a step back to determine the impact on their established e-discovery process and technology application.
  • New data sources (Web, Social Media) and increasing concerns about data sovereignty are driving emerging requirements and expanding the consideration of e-discovery scope and technology usage.
