A New Approach To The Electronic Discovery Reference Model
The EDRM, or Electronic Discovery Reference Model, was originally created in 2005 by attorney George Socha and technologist Tom Gelbmann. In increasingly detailed early iterations, it mapped out the technical stages of ediscovery. Since then, it’s been revised a few times to reflect minor adjustments in the approach to ediscovery practice.
As data volumes, and new data sources, have grown, the importance of information governance has skyrocketed. Now, it may be time to return to the drawing board.
With that in mind, in this guide we'll dive into:
- The Context and Purpose of the Original EDRM
- The Evolution of Ediscovery Since the Inception of the EDRM
- The Value of Rethinking the Ediscovery Model
