OpenText™ Axcelerate™ and the Principles of eDiscovery Platform Development

The Principles of eDiscovery Platform Development

As data volume and complexity continues to increase and budget and time pressures are more critical than ever, legal teams demand eDiscovery technology that will reduce costs, speed time to facts and increase quality of review. The key to achieving the objectives of cost reduction, speed to facts and increased quality is to enable efficiency across entire eDiscovery or investigations projects. The net effect is to allow legal teams to begin review sooner and complete review faster to achieve cost-efficiency and proportionality and find the critical evidence quickly.
