Episode Summary: Large dataset projects are being addressed with the broadening use of advanced analytics. However, this is introducing another level of complexity into what is already a complicated and potentially stressful process. It is important to understand how technology can be effectively incorporated into the different stages of the project and how to communicate this information with opposing parties or regulators to overcome objections and obtain approval for its use. Notably, when agencies issue a Second Request, the benefits realized by incorporating technology can assist in complying with the requirements, but this can involve extensive negotiations. Listen in to learn how to create efficient and effective workflows and achieve successful results around large-scale review projects by combining the expertise and talents from each team involved (client, counsel, and service provider(s)) in an organized manner.
