Many corporations are struggling to meet the demands of e-discovery requests placed upon the data they store in-house, the “Key Issues for E-Discovery and Legal Compliance” report by Osterman Research found. The report surveyed 137 IT professionals in organizations across multiple industries, with each organization handling an average of 75 e-discovery requests over the past 12 months.

Forty percent of those surveyed expect these requests to increase over the next 12 months, while 45 percent expect them to remain unchanged. While around half of respondents said their organizations are well prepared to handle e-discovery requests dealing with content stored in databases (56 percent), archive solutions (52 percent) or employee calendars (50 percent), most were far less prepared to handle requests on content stored in most other data repositories.
