Shocking Headline: “Electronic Data Discovery is Hot Business”

A nice background story from Oklahoma’s Journal Record (via edd blog online) on George Socha and Tom Gelbmann and their 2006 Socha-Gelbmann 4th Annual Electronic Discovery Survey. The opening paragraph puts it all in perspective:

“In 1987, there was one business dedicated solely to providing electronic data discovery (EDD) services. In 1992, there were about five more. In 2000, there were about 40. Today, there are over 600 offerings, or purporting to offer, these services. They range in size from very large enterprises, to one or two people.”
