Episode Summary: Maintaining on-premises ediscovery software typically involves a large cost and security burden, especially when it comes to small matter management like third-party subpoenas, internal investigations, and quick-turn government inquiries. In this session, we’ll hear from experts at a law firm and corporation and how they embraced a self-service, SaaS tool to independently manage their small matters without the responsibility and resources required to deploy and host the application themselves. We’ll discuss the steps they took to implement SaaS and use it to enhance their ediscovery workflow by having the most advanced search, analytics, and review software at their fingertips.
