Selecting an e-discovery software tool

Learn the criteria storage managers use to choose an e-discovery software tool.

When developing an e-discovery process, storage managers need to pay attention to issues such as chain of custody and spoliation (intentionally or negligently withholding, hiding, altering or destroying evidence relevant to a legal proceeding). More importantly, however, they need to evaluate how the e-discovery software tool will pass information to other parts of the process.
