Session Summary: Government agencies are faced with the huge explosion of data that impacts all investigations and eDiscovery cases. The challenges are that the time tables are not getting any longer, staffing resources are not growing, and budgets are at best staying the same. Everyone must continue to do more with less while continuing to meet the requirements and demands of our legal system. Both interagency and cross agency sharing of data, production processes and best practices can help to solve some of these challenges and find savings across the board.
