Its All About the Big Data

In the recent Clio announcement of their new Legal Trends report, founder Jack Newton cited a statistic that got the attention of Carolyn Elefant. The statistic is that...'solo practitioners bill an average of 1.76 hours per week'.

In a recent article at Ms. Elefant's blog, she raises the question of the context for this statistic. It seems low, and there are a number of possible explanations.

And here-in is the challenge with big-data. Understanding what the data is telling you. When looking at a statistic, it is important to understand the values surrounding the statistic (highest, lowest, median) and the dispersion of the data (for example, are there geographic variations that account for the final number).

Big data is becoming an essential part of running a successful business, but understanding the data is crucial to making good decisions based on that data.
