Unveils 2012 Industry Predictions and Analyst Research Calendar, Speaks at "Analysts Rundown," Co-Hosts Asia Pacific eDiscovery Exchange

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jan 30, 2012) - The eDJ Group, a leading eDiscovery analyst and consulting firm and parent company of the eDiscovery Journal, will present key eDiscovery findings, offer predictions for the coming year and release its research calendar this week at LegalTech New York 2012.

"As the most important eDiscovery event of the year, LegalTech represents the ideal opportunity to showcase eDJ's 2012 market expertise research findings and our ambitious agenda for the year under the eDJ Group umbrella. We're also excited to expand eDJ Group's presence overseas by the co-hosting the Asia Pacific eDiscovery Exchange in Hong Kong on June 22-23, 2012."

eDJ Group is focused on several key initiatives over the next few months that will culminate in the release of multiple reports, among them "The Cloud and eDiscovery Series," "Market Overview of Predictive Coding-Tech Assisted Review," "The Social Media Collection and Preservation Report," and "Technical Report on Upgrading and Using the New Summation." eDJ Group will also release multiple reports on the results of several Cloud and Predictive Coding surveys planned throughout the year.

eDJ Group market prediction highlights for 2012 include:

  • The evolution from processing applications to ECA to end-to-end eDiscovery platforms will continue, with the latter including collection and preservation, analysis and review capabilities.
  • Vendors will jockey to provide the industry's first comprehensive information management platform to manage "big data."
  • More steps will be taken to establish "industry standard" eDiscovery education and certification programs.
  • Vendors will bring innovation solutions to the market in order to address collection and preservation challenges ushered in by social media tools like Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
  • Case studies will emerge that answer industry concerns about the defensibility and accuracy of predictive coding; adoption will correspondingly increase.
  • 2012 will see more consolidation in the eDiscovery market. Many large vendors have eDiscovery products in their portfolios, but many others -- including Microsoft, Oracle, SAP and Symantec -- will need to make acquisitions to become or stay competitive in the market.
