Opportunities & Challenges for Tomorrow’s Discoverers: eDiscovery Best Practices

Derek Duarte of UnitedLex follows up his previous article on tomorrow’s “discoverers” by discussing the opportunities & challenges for data oriented jobs!

His article (The Future is Big (Data): Opportunities & Challenges for Tomorrow’s Discoverers, available here) discusses how technology got us in this Big Data mess we’re in today. A big reason we’re in the “mess” we’re in today is the role technology has played in creating a seemingly impossible amount of data for organizations to manage. There are so many apps and devices creating so much data, companies are becoming overwhelmed by it all.

How does that relate to tomorrow’s lawyers and tomorrow’s “discoverers”? With twice as much data to consider in discovery every two years, they must adapt to handle it all – budgets won’t double every two years. That means that, just as technology got us into this “mess”, technology will also have to get us out of this “mess”.


So, what are some stats that illustrate the “mess” we’re in today and how companies are approaching technology’s role in addressing the Big Data challenge? And how will data-oriented jobs evolve to address the opportunities & challenges? Click here to find out! It’s just one more click! The future is Big (Data)! 😀

So, what do you think? How do you think technology will get us out of the Big Data mess that we’re in? Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
