Distributed computing expert witness candidates typically have extensive experience in computer science, software engineering, electrical engineering, computer forensics, and/or cloud computing. A distributed computing expert witness needs to not only have substantive expertise, but must also possess the ability to explain evidence and technology to jurors. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a technologist with prior expert witness testimony experience.
Distributed computing generally falls into one of the following architectures:
Often, matters requiring distributed computing expert witness services involve intellectual property, such as patent infringement litigation, software copyright, or trade secret disputes.
