Join us for lunch and a presentation during our May meeting! Jenna Czaplicki from Nuix will present about Data Lakes for E-Discovery and Information Governance. Our meeting will be hosted at Cassels Brock and is generously sponsored by Nuix. Seating is limited to 60 people so please register early to secure your spot!
About the Presentation:
As data volumes continue to grow for organizations across the board, the collection, organization, and storage/disposition of that data becomes a greater and greater challenge. This presentation will introduce data lakes: what they are, how they may (or may not) benefit organizations, where service providers can play a role, and how to communicate about data lakes to various stakeholders. Questions you can expect to be answered:
What are data lakes?
Why would you or your clients use one?
Where is your data lake?
What are you putting into it?
How are you accessing it when you need it?
What concerns should you be aware of?
Who are you stakeholders and how do you bring data lakes into the conversation?
About the Presenter:
Jenna Czaplicki is a Solutions Consultant with Nuix based out of Washington, D.C. Nuix is an Australian technology company, known for its processing software and for Ringtail, its recently acquired E-Discovery platform. A former practicing lawyer, Ms. Czaplicki has centered the last seven years of her career around E-Discovery. Most recently, she has focused her efforts on enabling customers to bring solutions in-house and to the cloud, believing that staying ahead on technology trends is crucial for her law firm, corporate, and government customers alike.
