Complex corporate investigations have traditionally been exercises in inefficiency – costly, resource-intensive distractions that ultimately cause financial damage to an organization on multiple levels. With the rapid advancement of data analytics, it no longer has to be this way. Today, organizations can harness the power of the latest technology to reimagine how they conduct their most complex investigations.Industry leading analytics and investigations panelists discuss how technology can play a key role in making investigations better, faster and more cost-effective: how inefficiencies inherent in traditional investigations can be streamlined with the latest technology; how cognitive computing, visualization, and intelligent review solutions can efficiently make sense of massively diverse and complex data sources; how forward-looking companies can automate much of the work humans do on complex investigations for better, faster, cheaper results; how data analytics can be harnessed to improve the quality and comprehensiveness of investigations; and how data analytics is likely to impact complex investigations in the future.

Preview Clips: Play Brandon Daniels on How to Apply Data Analytics to Investigations “Data Analytics is turning information into something meaningful and salient to your case.”

Play Rich Plansky on Data Challenges with Complex Investigations” There is a proliferation of data in terms of volume and variety – the likes of which we haven’t seen before. But many companies are trying to meet that challenge by using old tools, throwing bodies at the problem and this mismatch between problem and solution is causing dramatic inefficiencies.”

Play Panel on Different Data Analytics Tools for Different Problems “So the use of different data analytics tools often is outside of the realm of what we would consider industry standard tools…when you’re looking at bringing together millions of different data points or actually probably trillions of data points in many of our cases, and making sense of them, it’s not one-size-fits all. And it’s sort of inappropriate to put a square peg in a round hole.”

Play Key Takeaways from Panelists “Knowing that data analytics comes in many forms is a first stepping stone to using data analytics efficiently in investigations. Take a certain thesis you have. Figure out what data is available and what tools you might be able to bring to bear to analyze that data. Don’t let yourself get caught in the constant struggle to manage to compressed time frames…”
