Posted by Joe Alonzo, Director of eDiscovery/Computer Forensics at Glenmont Group

In the ever-changing field of legal technology, I can’t help but think that Google has something up their sleeve in 2012.  With Jack Halprin’s departure from Autonomy in mid-2011 to join Google, one might assume that we will see Google enter the marketplace with an eDiscovery (and not Enterprise Search) product of their own this year.  If you look close enough, you can find some other key individuals from the ESI space who have also joined the ranks of Google.

As we all know, Google is a superpower (and a verb) and seemingly has unlimited resources unlike many organizations today.   They have gone through their share bumps and bruises with Google Apps as well with their latest offering, Google+.  One thing remains constant is that Google continues to press forward like a behemoth in several business areas, one being the Enterprise Cloud App space.  I will be waiting with anticipation to see what Google unveils this year in our space.

I welcome your thoughts and feedback on this post.
