Data, for better or worse, has literally become a household term. It colors most aspects of our lives. Work, play, shopping, health, you name it and data plays a major factor in the services we receive and supply. For some, it is a harbinger of some futuristic, dystopian nightmare. For others, data offers the promise of a more specialized, personalized, and powerful user experience. Whether your glass is half-empty or half-full, the desire for meaningful data is here to stay. Today's digest provides some of the more promising aspects of the power of good data and reminder that the future is still ours to shape.

Ravel-ling Up!

Ravel Law has won kudos for the power of its platform to harness and leverage case data to assist users in making sense of search results. Earlier this year, the company's marriage to Lexis left many wondering what was next for its flagship product. Sarah Gotschall cracks the mystery by sharing with us some interesting news regarding Ravel and Shepard's. This may just be a match made in heaven after all. Get a taste of what is to come in: Ravel Law Visualization Tools First Coming to Shepard's Results.

Data Does

And speaking of LexisNexis, up next we have a very interesting post from their Business of Law Blog. Elena Cutri takes a look at how good data can make a real difference in the "effective collaboration between marketing and IT to advance strategic firm projects". In a piece that should resonate with all of us in this information side of this industry, she advises, "you can't build a strong vision without deeply reliable data sources". Get her insights in: Better Data, Better Decisions.
