The California Employment Development Department (EDD), one of the largest state departments in the country with 13,500 employees at more than 400 locations, expects to halve its annual eDiscovery costs based on its current average of 20 eDiscovery events per year by switching to CommVault Simpana software.
By implementing the Simpana Backup and Recovery, Archive and Search modules, EDD reports being able to better control skyrocketing storage costs and improve the accuracy, timeliness and effectiveness of eDiscovery requests, which the company anticipates increasing 50 percent in the coming year.
One of the most laborious and costly parts of eDiscovery is the collection and review process of electronically stored information (ESI). With Simpana software, EDD is eliminating the manual collection of ESI, thereby reducing the burden on internal IT and legal staff. Accordingly, EDD projects that the time required by the IT team for eDiscovery will be cut in half, while attorney review time will be slashed by up to 99 percent.
