Exterro ran a survey in the Spring to identify the biggest challenges faced by in-house legal and IT professionals. When all was said and done, we heard from 140 people and with 36% of the total responses, “locating responsive data" was identified as the biggest e-discovery pain point, ahead of legal hold tracking, juggling multiple projects, and controlling how much data is sent to outside review.

Creating a Consistent E-Discovery Preservation Hold Process

Created on June 22, 2015


Chief Marketing Officer

Exterro was founded with the simple vision that applying the concepts of process optimization and data science to the way companies respond to litigation would drive more successful outcomes at a lower cost. The process part seems pretty obvious when you think about it. All the other departments and lines of business in an organization have been exposed to business process re-engineering or optimization for years and even decades, so it would stand to reason that the principles would be applied to the legal department as well, right? Surprisingly, we find many organizations that... Read More

Rethinking "Cheap" Data Storage

Created on June 10, 2015


Content Marketing Manager

Is data storage actually “cheap?" Ask an IT professional that question and you are likely going to get a resounding “yes." That response is understandable when you consider the costs of media associated with data storage. Mathematician and software engineer Matthew Komorowski has tracked hard drive costs over the years on a per gigabyte basis. He's displayed his data in a cool graph, which you can view here. In 2000, it costs approximately $14 to store 1GB of data. By 2005, the price was down to 75 cents. This year, it costs roughly 3 cents to store 1GB of data. With... Read More
