    "The E-Discovery and E-Disclosure 2010 User Survey"

    
</pre>
<p>According to The 451 Group's "E-Discovery and E-Disclosure 2010 User Survey," an end user survey of over 150 participants conducted to understand e-discovery usage and trends, 22% of respondents using outside e-discovery products and services selected Applied Discovery as the provider they used. Applied Discovery achieved the highest ranking of any full service provider and the second highest overall ranking in the entire survey. Additionally, of the 55% of respondents planning to purchase e-discovery software or services in the next twelve months, Applied Discovery was listed as a top performer with 8% of survey end users planning to purchase Applied Discovery services.</p>
<p/>
<p>"As e-discovery evolves, successful vendors are differentiating themselves with innovative technologies and methodologies, driving improved automation, ease of use and long-term cost savings," shared <span class="xn-person">Nick Patience</span>, research director for information management and co-founder of The 451 Group. "Applied Discovery appears to be one of those vendors who are successful differentiating themselves with e-discovery users--a fact borne out directly by end user recognition of and response to Applied Discovery in our most recent electronic discovery survey."</p>

    "3rd Annual eDiscovery Survey of Illinois Lawyers"

    
</pre>
<p>According to the "3rd Annual eDiscovery Survey of Illinois Lawyers," an end user survey of 185 legal professionals conducted to understand their level of exposure and experience with electronic discovery vendors and products, 36% of respondents answering the question "Have you ever hired an electronic discovery consultant or firm?" selected Applied Discovery. This was the highest ranking of any electronic discovery firm - a ranking that included mentions of other industry stalwarts including Kroll Ontrack, FTI Consulting, Huron Consulting, Clearwell Systems, and Stratify (Iron Mountain).</p>
<p/>
<p>"Based on this year's survey, the most important issues for end users regarding electronic discovery are review expenses, processing costs, and educational needs," stated <span class="xn-person">Tom Connor</span>, Director of the Legal Document Institute and author of the "3rd Annual eDiscovery Survey of Illinois Lawyers." "With these needs in mind, it seems understandable that Applied Discovery would rank high in the survey based on the fact that they have a proven and complete e-discovery offering complemented by project management support to include training and education available at no incremental cost."</p>
