The Spring 2017 eDiscovery Business Confidence Survey

The eDiscovery Business Confidence Survey is a non-scientific quarterly survey designed to provide insight into the business confidence level of individuals working in the eDiscovery ecosystem. The term ‘business’ represents the economic factors that impact the creation, delivery, and consumption of eDiscovery products and services. The purpose of the survey is to provide a subjective baseline for understanding the trajectory of the business of eDiscovery through the eyes of industry professionals. 

Last year we advocated for the separate tracking of the Canadian perspective of this quarterly survey and the ensuing results were very insightful to our specific market. We are thrilled that this survey will once again separate Canadian responses from those of our American neighbors and other global markets and results will be broken out for geographic measurement.

  1. A smaller, more tight knit eDiscovery community in Canada brings about close working relationships and the adoption of best practices;

  2. The preponderance of women in litigation support roles in Canada further fosters cooperation;

  3. Canadian clients are using analytics more and more during Early Case Assessment and prior to review (such as through the use of our Intelligent Review solutions) in order to adhere to the principle of proportionality as mandated by the Sedona Canada Principles. In fact, a full 82% of Commonwealth’s clients apply some sort of conceptual analytics to their file; and

  4. Canadian corporations are more likely to be the drivers behind and increase in eDiscovery technologies usage.
