What is “analysis” in relation to electronic discovery?
Analysis, also known as “Analytics” in the realm of electronic discovery, is the leveraging of data through the use of a particular functional process to enable context-specific insight that is actionable.*
Why is analysis important?
Case preparation by senior level attorneys is the part of the electronic discovery process that begins to translate relevant electronic information into organized and prioritized evidence to support a client’s legal position. With the advent of advanced search technologies, these senior legal professionals have been able to improve their efficiency in organizing evidence as they build their respective cases. However, as the proliferation of electronic communications continues, these same professionals need even more capability to rapidly and accurately evaluate large volumes of relevant information discovered during review. With the introduction of analytics into the electronic discovery process, senior level attorneys can now move beyond advanced search in their case preparation and can begin to organize, understand, and prioritize information and information patterns to make even quicker and more efficient case decisions. This early organization, understanding, and prioritization of information also helps decrease the size of data sets that are to be fully processed, reviewed, and produced, thus decreasing costs throughout downstream processes.
What are some of the key tasks in “analysis”?
- Locating of data to be analyzed.
- Indexing of located data.
