Survey Says IT Managers would Rather Deal with IRS than Face E-Discovery Request

James Rogers, Senior Editor of Byte and Switch in his Mr. Rogers’ Neighbourhood column Email’s Mea Culpa reports on a survey released by Osterman Research and sponsored by LiveOffice.

The survey polled 400 IT managers:

“IT managers find e-discovery requests so painful that dealing with the IRS was the only activity respondents found more unpleasant. In fact, more than half of survey respondents cited that they’d rather have a cavity filled than respond to an e-discovery request.”

Lastly, 52% of the IT managers polled do not have an e-discovery plan that has been prepared by legal counsel.
