What makes up a Word document?
Ever wondered just what makes up a Word document?
You're a normal person, so the answer to this is probably "No, I haven't".
Now, we're not saying you need to become geeks like us and get all content crazy. But a healthy interest in how your documents get created and therefore what elements can appear within a Word document (without you even know it), could prevent a data loss event and potential reputational damage.
Understanding content changes
Workshare has been in the business of understanding how content changes since creating DeltaView in 1999. Changes to content affect the meaning of documents and agreements; they have implications for people and businesses. We never underestimate how much change matters.
Workshare has been changing too.
We’re working on new ways to analyze content: how it’s shared, where it’s produced, how it’s used and how context affects content. Because in a digital era, content is king.
As the digital age came about, a combination of computer technology and intellectual prowess turned mountains of paper into digital files. Fast forward 20 or 30 years and law firms are now sitting on mountains of data, but most aren’t using this data to the best of its ability. Enter knowledge management – an often misunderstood and misused phrase.
Lawyers are the original knowledge workers. Law firms can sell their lawyers’ time, because of their knowledge of the law and the legal system.
The ability to mitigate risk, manage crisis, and navigate legal procedures becomes easier when you’ve done it once or twice. The General Counsel (GC) with bet-the-company litigation pending surely wants the most experienced lawyers working the matter.
The Iridium BI Matter module enables partners and pricing analysts to create accurate plans for upcoming matters. Users can create and approve matter plans, and then monitor performance versus plan as the matter is being worked.
The Matter module is tightly integrated with the other Iridium BI modules, enabling a holistic view of matter plans and outcomes versus firm-defined performance metrics.
