There are many ways that technology can help save costs in respect of litigation, but sometimes it is challenging to identify them precisely due to the fact that no two cases are identical. Further, the perception is that computing power and storage is "cheap" - especially around basic cloud-services.

Technology in a litigation context though requires much more sophistication and specilisation due to the nature of what is being done, how it is being done and the controls around it.  Anyone (with deep enough pockets) can buy the latest technologies, which means that it is often the quality of the consultants that is the differentiator, ensuring that they know and understand the entire process, rather than being "button-pushers."

Having said all that, technology assisted review (or predictive coding), enhanced workflow, automated processes (e.g. translations) and non per-GB pricing models can make significant and telling inroads into costs.
