Evolve Discovery Participates as Project Co-Leader in EDRM Metrics Team 2010-2011
Press Release, San Francisco, CA – May 13, 2010 – Evolve Discovery, a full service litigation consulting company, is proud to announce that Shamir Colloff, Chief Technology Officer, will be participating as Project Co-Lead for the EDRM 2010-2011 Metrics Project Team. The mission of the EDRM Metrics Project is to provide an effective means of measuring the time, money and volumes associated with e-discovery activities. In addition, the Metrics model group is responsible for creating tracking, reporting and measurement protocols to assess e-discovery activities, and, to the extent metrics data becomes available, begin analysis of that data.
The kickoff for the EDRM VI (2010-2011) project commenced today with the objective for each of the eight project teams to present a high level summary of results from the 2009-2010 year and a preliminary set of objectives for the 2010-2011 year.
The Metrics project follows the e-discovery process described in the Electronic Discovery Reference Model: identification, preservation, collection, processing, review, analysis, and production, as well as the overarching project management activities that are in inherent part of any e-discovery undertaking.
“This fits right into Evolve's continued business plan of bringing the whole process under one roof - in identifying and helping clients leverage where their projects may go over deadline/over budget by building an accurate metric-matrix for the eDiscovery portion of the project, AND the document review portion,” said Colloff. “I look forward to a successful and productive year with EDRM Metrics Project team.”
Colloff and team will seek to expand the scope, breadth and depth of case studies relating to metrics with the goal to standardize a recommendation on how to collect, manage and measure these metrics for best use in discovery planning.
