Scenario An organization is involved in a litigation involving significant volumes of electronic data. After enduring the costs of processing the data, the organization finds itself faced with the additional costs of managing and maintaining not only its own production data, but also the data produced by other litigants. As the production volume mounts, the organization becomes increasingly concerned with the growing costs of managing the post-production data over the life of the matter. The organization begins to explore potential options for managing the costs of postproduction data as it continues to evaluate the productions and prepare for trial.
