Later this month it is ILTA Nashville and one of the highlights looks set to be the release of the album Bright Lights – Big Data by the legal IT world’s house band Legal Bytes. The band has been performing all original songs about legal technology every year at the ILTA Conference since 2008. This year (since it’s back in Nashville) Recommind has put up the funds to produce a full scale 12-track album. It is being released to the public for free during the week of this year’s conference starting August 17th. Recommind’s Wednesday night party is also going to be a record release party where attendees each receive a special collectible copy of the CD and the band does a full special set that evening.

Over the last few years a growing gap has emerged between new law and old school law firms. It’s not as many predicted in that new firms would emerge and take over the world while long established firms would fail to respond and disappear. Far from it. Some new firms are struggling to surface above water while a number of traditional firms are finding new ways to reinvent themselves. There are some great examples of long established firms that are enjoying rapid growth and taking market share. Perhaps the more interesting changing dynamic is the emergence of “breakaway” firms. There is a growing trend, which I think we will see a lot more of, where lawyers are leaving firms because they are disenchanted by a firm’s lack of willingness and agility to change. This, I think, represents most risk to the very large firms where “turning the Titanic” is a massive task. Many talented individuals see it easier to go alone and are jumping from the bigger ship and heading for a more nimble, fast moving speedboat to navigate the choppy waters. The logic makes sense; it is easier to start again than enable the change.
Lots of ediscovery news to get through including stories from DTI + eDepoze & Esquire Deposition Solutions (& webinar) + Kroll Ontrack + Nuix & CCL Solutions + Iris Data + Commonwealth Legal & Ricoh Canada + Nexidia + Catalyst webinar

Success in the lab does not come without a few failures. This is equally so of Big Data projects at work, and this is a good thing. We must consider this when managing the performance of our Big Data projects in an organizational setting. We continue our discussion of the organization of the future by moving from the decisions we must make when looking to introduce Big Data, and instead regard managing the performance of such projects when underway. Just as with the many failed experiments of Dr. Honeydew & Beaker from The Muppets Show in order for the organization of the future to truly succeed in measuring Big Data performance, we must be willing to meld art and science which means being comfortable with and anticipating a number of failures on the quest to getting it right.
