Proactive Perspectives: Navigating the Challenges of Alternate Data Types in eDiscovery
Okta's 2023 Businesses at Work report reveals that companies with 2,000 employees now deploy an average of 211 apps, marking a 24-app increase from last year. Even smaller companies tend to use over 90 apps. While not all of these apps will contain relevant information for eDiscovery, they do point to a growing concern for in-house teams, law firms, and service providers: how to handle the ever-increasing amount of content, collaboration, and chat data. Legal teams must adapt to this trend and learn the best practices for managing the systems powering their business, whether it's emoji-laden messages in Slack or Teams, Confluence wiki pages, or Zoom meeting recordings.
