EDRM Update – November 2015

EDRM Update\r\nIssue 27 – November 2015\r\n\r\nNovember 2015 will go down in history as the month that EDRM hit a ‘personal best’ in several important categories:\r\n


  • A 24% increase in organizational members – more than any previous month in EDRM’s history.
  • \r\n

  • More new individual members than any prior month, an amazing array of talent including  database experts, attorneys, e-discovery experts, educators, and leaders from state and local government.
  • \r\n

  • The inaugural release of our member-only EDRM FRCP Reference Collection, which we continue to enhance and expand. Currently we offer a rule-by-rule summary of changes to everyone and, for our members, a much more extensive set of materials.
  • \r\n

  • Rapid uptake in the use of the new public and member-only EDRM micro datasets for e-discovery testing and prototyping.
  • \r\n

\r\nThe momentum is growing, and we are looking forward to a great 2016! Stay tuned for future updates on EDRM activities and plan to be involved. The participation and contributions of EDRM members make this community a valuable and productive force in the e-discovery industry. We thank you for your active participation and we welcome your suggestions, questions and comments at any time.\r\n\r\nLast but not least, remember to join us for our upcoming events, listed below.\r\n\r\nRegards,\r\n\r\nGeorge Socha and Tom Gelbmann\r\n\r\n
