The third in a series of 2014 information management predictions from our resident industry experts, we asked the executive team at C2C Systems to provide their top predictions for enterprise information and email management in 2014.
Rich Turner’s 2014 Information Management Predictions
1. Discovery requests in the UK
New eDisclosure regulations will take force in the UK, which will require more up-front involvement in discovery by participants; in the US, new FRCP regulations will ease spoliation concerns but eDiscovery volume will continue its current exponential increase.
2. Discovery in the US
In US, FOIA requests will increase substantially, and penalties will begin to be levied on organizations who do not achieve mandated time frames.
3. Office 365
Microsoft will continue to push Office 365 but for mid-size and larger organizations will provide self-hosting options – i.e., Office 365 will offer a rental model not just the current “hosted” model.
Google will continue to gain market share for Google Apps and for Chrome but will do so at “firesale” prices.
5. Blackberry and Apple
Blackberry/RIM will fold and be acquired by Apple who will leverage their OS/10 for secure installations (i.e., phone information which is not shared with Intelligence Agencies).
