Ninety percent of the data in the world has been created in the past two years and “The Internet of Things” will create even more without human intervention. All this data—combined with tight timelines for litigation and regulatory investigations—can make document review projects impossible through traditional means and in some cases technological assistance becomes a must to meet the deadline.
