IG and E-Discovery 2017

Moving from Concept to Execution

A Live IGI Discussion
Supported by:

Join us on Wednesday February 8th AT 1PM EDT

In our first webinar of 2017, IGI leaders will host a discussion with subject matter experts from IGI Charter Supporter OpenText

UPDATE: Our experts will also share most important IG and E-Discovery trends and developments they just saw and heard at the LegalTech conference in New York, Jan. 30-Feb. 1, 2017.

We will discuss:

  • New delivery models for e-discovery capabilities that support a comprehensive approach to IG.
  • Evaluating the relationship between ECM and e-discovery as we mature and build our IG programs.
  • Perspectives on what IG and e-discovery will look like in the near future.

Webinar Background

The IGI predicts that 2017 will be a landmark year, with an accelerating number of organizations transitioning from talking IG to doing IG. While early adopters have moved onto value-focused projects, the much larger middle segment is now beginning to shift into execution mode.

Nowhere will this be more obvious than at the intersection of E-Discovery and IG. Like enterprise IT itself, e-discovery is experiencing massive disruption. 

In late 2016, OpenText—best known as a leading provider of Enterprise Information Management (EIM) software—acquired Recommind, a pioneer in the application of advanced analytics in E-Discovery. The acquisition is an example of an IG provider “putting its money where its mouth is” in betting on a vision of truly integrated IG.

Our first webinar of 2017 will provide a valuable opportunity for the IG community to hear directly from OpenText about why they made the Recommind acquisition, what it means for customers of both organizations, and what it means for the future of IG and E-Discovery
