Gartner position Clearwell as eDiscovery “Leaders”

Clearwell Systems has been positioned by Gartner in the ‘Leaders’ quadrant of the ‘Magic Quadrant for eDiscovery Software’

This report is Gartner’s first Magic Quadrant on the electronic discovery industry.

According to the report,

“The reason e-discovery is now a pressing issue for most companies is clear: ESI [electronically stored information] in all its many forms dominates in legal proceedings because modern business is mostly conducted using electronic communications and electronic records. Regulators require this ESI to be archived for proof of compliance.”

The report also states that

“the trend for increased volume, velocity and variety [of ESI] shows no sign of abating. Increasing use of social media for business purposes, cloud provision of IT and the rise of ‘big data’ applications will add to the mountains of material that might be relevant to any legal or regulatory action. This will increase the challenge for enterprises as they seek to reduce the amount of data they produce to only relevant items.”

With the explosion of electronically stored data coupled with the rise in litigation, enterprises are increasingly viewing eDiscovery as a core business process. To help streamline this emerging business process, the Clearwell eDiscovery Platform provides a single, end-to-end solution for legal hold, identification, collection, preservation, processing, analysis, review and production. Clearwell enables enterprises, government agencies and law firms to dramatically reduce the cost and risk of eDiscovery while ensuring defensibility.

“We believe that being positioned by Gartner in the Leaders quadrant is a confirmation of Clearwell’s ongoing commitment to meet our customers’ e-discovery needs through continuous product innovation and unparalleled customer service,” said Kamal Shah, vice president of products and marketing at Clearwell Systems. “Key to the Clearwell eDiscovery Platform is our superior functionality and unmatched ease of use, so that when customers perform a proof of concept they can immediately see the result of leveraging a highly scalable product to reduce cost, mitigate risk and ensure defensibility of the entire eDiscovery process.”
