ACEDS: Defending Big Data

We've been talking a lot about Big Data on this blog. The reason is that we are continuing to see a link between managing the Big Data growth problem in the enterprise and eDiscovery and compliance risks associated with it. While IT departments grapple with how to support complex Big Data environments, legal teams are tasked with making accommodations for Big Data in the already expensive eDiscovery process.

How do legal teams account for emerging data types and do it all with fewer resources and budget spend?

How can we best retain, access, discover and ultimately delete content in compliance with evolving regulations and case law?

How can we transform the way users access, discover and use Big Data?

These are some of the questions IT groups are asking themselves today and you'll see us get more and more vocal very soon. Of course, these topics will be part of the focus on our own upcoming Simpana 10 launch tour, which will be Commvault's biggest and most revolutionary software release in history. More on that later. In the meantime, you can find us at venues like the Association of Certified eDiscovery Specialists (ACEDS for short), where we hosted the webinar, "Defending Big Data" this past week.

We were also at LegalTech New York this week, where we hosted the Closing Plenary Address given by the Police Commissioner of New York. At Commvault, we are committed to exchanging ideas and work closely with the legal community to ultimately help our customers meet the real-world information management challenges they face every day. Keep coming back for more information on the link between Big Data and eDiscovery, Simpana 10 and much more.
