Data Mining – Getting Started


Why Data Mining?

As data volumes and discoverable sources continue to grow, getting a quick understanding of what is in your data before fully processing will speed up your overall review process and create less headaches during your review. Similar to how your email inbox may be set up to pre-filter through your spam, allowing you to ONLY view pertinent information – Data Mining helps attorneys eliminate the noise before they even lay eyes on their information.

Because each firm’s environment for Data Mining is unique and independent, Data Mining is highly secure and incredibly fast. We ingest data for Data Mining at a blazing ½ to 1 terabyte per hour.
