eDiscovery Journal brings us a Predictive Coding Case Study

eDiscovery Journal, part of the respected eDJ Group, has produced a new report, a predictive coding case study called How One Enterprise Dipped a Toe Into Predictive Coding.

The report itself is available to subscribers, but you may be interested in Barry Murphy’s covering article. This emphasises that technology-assisted review / predictive coding is available in many forms, ranging from outright purchase for firms and companies who might then use it for every matter through to matter-by-matter contracts with managed services companies.

As Barry Murphy says, 2013 will be the year in which anecdotal evidence will emerge of TAR usage and the development of best practices. We are well past the early adopter phase, but as these stories and case studies roll out from those who make use of predictive coding and other forms of technology-assisted review, those not yet brave enough to try ought perhaps to go and see a couple of predictive coding tools so that you can understand and interpret the emerging case studies. You can ask providers to give you a web demo which will allow you to see what the fuss is about without having to leave the office.

Whether or not technology-assisted review is right for your cases, you will learn at least not be taken by surprise when your opponent announces his intention of using it.
