Briefing on: Legal technology in 2014
Here comes tomorrow...
Whether it's the driver of strategy or the enabler (that's still up for debate), there's no disputing IT is at the centre of the big moves in legal. How firms are using technology to expedite and improve processes, people and their profitability is all in this very special edition of Briefing on IT in 2014.
Clients are demanding more diversity, more alternatives – and not only in the payment for the service, but also in its delivery. Is technology driving a more project-style way of working? Has it already led us there? What tech do operational people have to work with, and are they using it? Briefing on legal IT looks to answer that crucial question: how ready is your firm for 2014... and beyond?
What's in this month's issue?
Interview: Rupert White talks to Paul Caris, CIO of Eversheds, about giving the people what they want, everywhere mobility, and (not) predicting the future of legal IT.
Feature: Joanna Goodman finds out what the directors of the top firms think of mass mobility, third screens, the cloud, enterprise resource planning, cloud practice management, matter management, information visualisation, big data, and more. With insight from leaders at Berwin Leighton Paisner, Clyde & Co, Dentons, DLA Piper, Osborne Clarke, Reed Smith, Reynolds Porter Chamberlain, Taylor Wessing and Weightmans the future of legal IT is in your hands.
Insight: Declan Tan talks to Chris Hill, IT contracts lawyer at Kemp Little, about the most common mistakes made by IT buyers, and how to get the best out of your vendors.
Plus: Briefing speaks to issue sponsor Thomson Reuters Elite's CTO Eric Sugden about filling in the gaps in firm-wide legal IT, how mobile will be the dominant platform, and why firms will, one day, live in the cloud.
