Blue Hill Research shares its take on the new ZDiscovery Platform

Principal Analyst David Houlihan of Blue Hill Research discusses Zapproved’s expansion beyond beyond legal hold and how it plays into the growing move towards self-service ediscovery.

In early February at the 2015 LegalTech New York, Zapproved launched its ZDiscovery platform, a cloud-based suite combining the company’s flagship Legal Hold Pro solution with Data Collect Pro and Digital Discovery Pro.

Zapproved is far from alone in offering cloud-based or SaaS ediscovery. However, the provider stands out for how it is taking advantage of the elastic deployment options of cloud architecture to scale implementations on a subscription or on-demand basis. This flexibility positions ZDiscovery as an ediscovery platform option for the midsize sector, which has been largely under-served by corporate ediscovery platform providers.
