Snapshot: Ediscovery confidence dips from last year

Ediscovery requests continue to rise. Sixty-three percent of our survey respondents have been asked to perform a legal or compliance request--up from 57% one year ago. And backup tape continues to be the most likely place the data can be found. Seventy-three percent of respondents recovered requested data from tape, while 29% found the data on backup disk. Only 9% relied on an outside source for ediscovery. Meanwhile, 47% of those surveyed say they're only "somewhat confident" that they could meet ediscovery requests, while 10% are "not at all confident." Despite those shaky confidence reports, 64% of respondents also report that they haven't made any technology purchases specifically for ediscovery.
