Big data describes “a collection of data sets so large and complex that conventional database management tools or data processing applications have difficulty processing the data.” With the growth of information created and available, the typical challenges become more difficult in the context of big data. These challenges include capturing, curating, storing, searching, sharing, transferring, analyzing, and visualizing the data. Given the near-constant threat of litigation, the amount of data stored on a company’s servers and computers, an individual’s laptop, and handheld devices should be a major concern for corporate counsel. Big data can also result in bloated litigation budgets due to the necessity of searching, retrieving, reviewing, and processing these vast datasets.
