The scope of eDiscovery has expanded beyond its traditional focus on litigation. Defining, mapping and applying advanced eDiscovery processes requires better collaboration, creativity and flexibility. Marrying technology with advanced processes also plays a key role.

For decades, firms have had to purchase the infrastructure and licenses for software to review their data and invested in robust software to process it. Smaller firms who were unable to purchase processing software would opt to outsource services such as the processing of electronic documents, unitizing and coding of documents.
On-Demand eDiscovery is changing that.
