The identification, preservation, collection, preparation, review and production of electronically stored information associated with legal and government proceedings.
eDiscovery Reference Model.


Identification is used to identify potential sources of relevant information. These sources may include business units, people, IT systems and paper files.


Displaying ESI before audiences (at depositions, hearings, trials, etc.), especially in native & near-native forms, to elicit further information, validate existing facts or positions, or persuade an audience
When duty to preserve is triggered, promptly isolate and protect potentially relevant data in ways that are: legally defensible; reasonable; proportionate; efficient; auditable; broad but tailored; mitigate risks.
To prepare and produce ESI in an efficient and usable format in order to reduce cost, risk and errors and be in compliance with agreed production specifications and timelines
Discern at an item-level exactly what data is contained in the submitted dataset; to record all item-level metadata as it existed prior to processing; and to enable defensible reduction of data by “selecting” only appropriate items to move forward to review. All of this must happen with strict adherence to process auditing; quality control; analysis and validation, and chain of custody considerations.
