Defining Success in Discovery

I was reading an IDC survey about discovery. It stated that 79% of IT executives rate their ability to respond to litigation by finding and producing responsive information as “above average” to “very well prepared”. I don’t care what the survey says and I don’t care what the IT executives believe they are able to do. I don’t believe they are right and in any event, I don’t think they know what success is in the discovery context. Are you kidding me—read the Wall Street Journal and you will realize the defining success in discovery through the eyes of the IT executive is not prudent.

Are you kidding me.
