Topic abstract

“Big Data” typically refers to electronic information of sufficient size, complexity and velocity so as to exceed the capabilities of conventional information management methodologies. Analyzing such data presents very real challenges including considerations of cost, deadlines and the availability of properly trained professional staff to name but a few.

As practitioners attempt to seek clarity and truth from within large volumes of complex data, whether for a legal or a compliance/regulatory matter, understanding and dealing effectively with these challenges can be a trial in itself. Practical, real-world solutions are available, however, and both Ms. Pyle and Mr. Starrett will discuss proven best practices on a host of key topics including:

  • How to efficiently coordinate work flows between data scientists and legal professionals.
  • How enterprises can implement information governance programs that take advantage of data analytics technology.
  • What the available data analytics tools are and how they are most appropriately applied.
