With all of the talk about big data, data analytics, and defining core metrics, figuring out how to present the results of your analysis in a clear, thoughtful manner—and ideally in a way that allows for filtering the data for more views real time–is just as important.

In this session, Cecilia Yoshida and Jeffrey Franke of Yahoo will discuss Yahoo Legal Ops’ ongoing journey to try to build dashboard nirvana without relying on expert external resources. A variety of pre-built dashboard options will be shown to present eBilling and other kinds of key legal department analytics—just the way you want them.

This session will cover key criteria for deciding which path may be best for you, which solutions require IT support, what metrics should be of interest, the need/struggle to get clean data, and relative costs and benefits of the solutions presented, as well as present a number of actionable solutions for those with an immediate need for a legal ops dashboard.
