As data volumes increase and become more complex, having an integrated e-discovery environment where systems and data sources are automatically syncing information and exchanging data with e-discovery applications has become critical for organizations. This is true of unstructured and semi-structured data sources, such as email servers and content management systems, as well as structured data sources, like databases and data archives.  A lot of e-discovery practitioners are comfortable with unstructured data sources like email, file shares, or documents in SharePoint, but often...
