LINDON, UTAH / SINGAPORE – June 13, 2013 - AccessData, a pioneer of digital investigations and litigation support solutions, announces it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of the analyst firm’s 2013 Magic Quadrant for E-Discovery. This is Gartner’s third annual Magic Quadrant focused on the e-discovery industry. The report, titled, “Magic Quadrant for E-Discovery Software,” published June 10, 2013 evaluates vendors based on completeness of vision and ability to execute against key e-discovery industry criteria.
Leaders in the 2013 Magic Quadrant possess four characteristics, including: functionality that meets one or more requirements of the left-hand side of the EDRM — identification, preservation or litigation hold, collection and processing, plus ECA (which although not on the EDRM is a widely recognized category of functionality in this market) — and one or more aspects of the right-hand side — processing, review, analysis and production; clearly demonstrates that their focus is software development and sales, as opposed to the provision of services; shows a good mix of corporate and law firm buying centers among their clients. Vendors that derive the majority of their revenue from the legal-solution provider channel may have good businesses at present, but we see this market becoming ever smaller, so it is not a good long-term strategy, and perform well both financially and from a growth perspective.
“We are very pleased to have been placed in the Leaders quadrant and believe that our strong technology, underpinned by our real commitment to support and service, is a large part of what put us there,” stated AccessData CEO, Tim Leehealey. “We will continue to support our customers by developing and perfecting our end-to-end e-discovery platform and expanding our coverage in developing areas such as mobile device e-discovery and the intersection of e-discovery and information security.”
