What is Electronic Discovery?
Electronic discovery (e-discovery) software is used to identify, preserve, collect, review, and produce electronically stored information (ESI) that is potentially relevant to litigation or government investigations. ESI is information stored in an electronic medium and retrievable in perceivable form.
ESI comprises all current types of computer-based information and encompasses future changes and developments. It may be found in databases that do not relate to hard copy materials. ESI does not include traditional writings stored solely on paper or another tangible, non-electronic medium.
