Big data—all of the electronically stored information being created in the enterprise, both structured and unstructured—has become a term ubiquitous in the media throughout 2012 and continues to be at the top of the enterprise’s mind as we close out this year.
For the past two years, we’ve asked a consulting firm, Strait & Associates, to help us understand how big data has impacted the Relativity universe. How has this trend been affecting our end users? The analyses demonstrated the following.
- Comparing the 50 largest cases housed in Relativity, the median case size grew from 960,000 documents in 2009 to 9.2 million in 2012.
- Comparing the 100 largest cases housed in Relativity, the median case size grew from 520,000 documents in 2010 to 5.9 million in 2012.
