Originally published more than a year ago, this post is a helpful look at one of the easiest wins in all of e-discovery analytics. We've updated it to reflect the current capabilities of Relativity, and are republishing it to give you another look.
According to the Radicati Group, the average businessperson sends 36 emails per day. It may not sound like much, but if you do the math, it means a single employee creates nearly 10,000 emails per year (more if they work weekends).
With these numbers, it’s no wonder email is the dominant data form in e-discovery. Even in cases involving only a few custodians, you’re looking at a data set filled with thousands of emails, one for every time your custodian hits send.
