Driven by economics and operational efficiencies, enterprises worldwide are moving Electronically Stored Information (ESI) to the Cloud at an accelerating rate. Driven by Mobile Computing and Social Media applications such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, consumers are creating more Cloud based ESI than anyone could have ever imaged. As a result, there are going to be few if any legal matters that won't require identification, collection, processing, analysis and review of potentially relevant electronic evidence currently stored in the Cloud. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) has become a preferred option for consumers and a viable option enterprises. As a result the eDiscovery market is going to demand that eDiscovery technology also run in the Cloud. Join us to discuss the challenges, risks, rewards and best practice of navigating eDiscovery in the Cloud.

"It is a privilege to speak with a great panel of experts and participate in such an engaging conference," stated Mixner. "I am confident that our panel will provide great insight as to which types of electronic discovery activities in the EDRM lifecycle are best accomplished via the cloud and which belong on-premise."

Where The Cloud can most benefit eDiscovery lifecycle activities.
