The respected eDJ Group has published its 2013 eDiscovery Trend Predictions. The report itself is available only to subscribers or on payment of a fee, but Barry Murphy has provided a helpful summary of it.
The headline topics include the spread of predictive coding, the growing interest in information governance projects, and the need to collect and preserve an ever-wider range of information types from social media, web content, mobile device content and structured data.
The article refers specifically to the need to find the right people for predictive coding. Barry Murphy says:
The other thing to watch for with TAR and predictive coding is the race to build up the most human resources expertise. This will be especially important for managed services providers, who will differentiate on the level of human experience with predictive coding as well as the portfolio of technologies used.
This applies equally to information governance, a function requiring a wide range of skills, including eDiscovery expertise. Where are we going to find the right people?
