Technology + Outsourcing: Best of both worlds for Discovery/Document Review Clients?

This story is under development, but the following alliances do point towards verndors coming together to offer a "one-stop-shop" solution for all Document Review needs:

1. CPA Global and Applied Discovery (LexisNexis)
2. LawScribe and IQWEST
3. Integreon and Datum Legal

With some of the alliances offering a fixed price per document, interesting pricing models and consequent savings to customers are bound to emerge. If you aren't getting a discount, ask your Document Review vendor for it!

Is this an indication of the direction of evolution in the LPO space i.e. large law technology companies partnering or merging with, or even acquiring LPO services vendors? This blog is keenly watching.
