iCONECT, maker of the XERA eDiscovery platform, is running a webinar on 16 September at 1.00pm EDT which examines the apparently opposing approaches implicit in the expressions Best in Breed and End-to-End.
One approach is premised on the idea that the different component of the eDiscovery task might be given to whichever contractor can do it best, where “best” includes quality, reliability, functionality and cost. Other reasons, such as the peculiar nature of a particular case or the fact that a company or firm already owns software licences might dictate such a choice.
The other approach sees benefits in committing the whole task to one hand, with every stage performed in the same or a related software tool.
There is plenty to debate here. Ian Campbell of iCONECT is joined by Stephen Dooley, Senior Manager of Electronic Discovery and Litigation Support, Sullivan & Cromwell, LLP, Christopher Redlich, Litigation Support Manager – Americas, Allen & Overy, LLP and Frank Canterino, CTO & Co-Founding Partner, Empire Discovery for a webinar covering these subjects, details of which you will find here.
