No, it is not!
I hear the comments about the cost of eDiscovery technology very often here in SA, and, to be fair, I used to hear them quite often in the UK too, until there was more use and enlightenment. Although I have referred to it in previous blog posts I thought we should dedicate an entire post to the subject. Timing is everything, and recently I am aware of more and more cases within SA using technology, as well as comments about increasing volumes of electronic data and/or technology not being used to its best advantage. All of these, have significant impact on cost. However it goes much much deeper, in that, in truth it is all about education and understanding.
