IBM announced today that it will acquire Enterprise Content Management vendor FileNet. Over time, this could change the EED landscape. 

Enterprise content management, which increasingly includes records management, is becoming the arena of major corporations. (For example, see my blog post about CA acquiring MDY.) As big companies gain control over the life cycle and storage locations of their information, the e-discovery landscape is sure to change. Exactly how, however, remains to be seen but I suspect pure e-discovery providers, especially those focused on collecting and processing data, will eventually have to develop new offerings to thrive and grow.
