The [Data] Force Awakens: Disparate Data Causes Disturbances in the Legal Ops Team’s Force (April 23, 9:15-10:15am)

With the rise of productivity and messaging tools, it has become increasingly complex to keep track of where data is being stored - let alone make any sense of it. While these tools help us in our daily work, disparate data sources cause disturbances in the Legal Ops team’s force. Having a central place where data is properly managed and categorized is a dream for many, but the reality requires great discipline and change management processes to properly store and tag important resources company-wide. However, this has become practically impossible as we are constantly flooded by new data.

On this interactive panel, we will go over how Legal Ops teams can:

  • Use APIs to integrate with some of these popular platforms, like Slack, to create a centralized and searchable repository of their enterprise data.
  • Deploy different AI models to automatically categorize and classify data scattered across myriads of silos.
  • Run enterprise-wide smart searches to find information across entire teams and departments.
  • Collaborate with others on discovery document requests.
  • Setup smart alerts to monitor compliance requests and PII/PHI.
  • Conduct GDPR subject access requests in real-time.
  • Reach Yoda-level Legal Ops mastery.
