The legal industry relies heavily on the ability to store large quantities of files for long periods of time. This data needs to remain accessible and secure. It may seem like that’s asking a lot, but with the cloud, it’s really not. With advanced backup, failover, recovery and computing, the cloud is accessible for any legal firm.
Industry experts predict that cloud computing use by lawyers will increase significantly this year, now that the technology is becoming increasingly familiar. It may not cover all computing needs right away, but more lawyers will certainly use the cloud for some aspects of running their firms, whether it’s billing, time tracking, document storage, or a full-fledged law practice management software system.
