  • True discovery automation is drag-n-drop of any size & type of data and nothing more.

  • Great list. I’m sure it will continue to grow as users experience the benefits and more and more discovery is handled through automated technology. One of the biggest benefits of automation is that it saves time; however, it also saves money and improves quality.

    It is a great list and interesting to see the different approaches with each of them. This is a growing market and a product with included data analytics, sophisticated workflows and simplified pricing models all need to be considered in the evaluations. Thank you for posting Rob.
