So what's big this year at LegalTech 2011? Cloud and mobile. FindLaw president Karl Florida was in the thick of the legal technology event talking about FirmSite Premium and cloud computing.
"We're seeing a lot of interest in cloud computing, we're seeing mobile become part of the legal technology landscape for real, and we're seeing a lot of interest in social media. So law firms are wrestling with how social media affects their practice and also their marketing," Florida said. Videos of his insights are available on YouTube.
FirmSite Premium is something that you can put to use for your law firm immediately. FirmSite provides a web template with comprehensive Web capabilities that can take your website to the next level. It is highly customizable and provides advanced functionality with a simple interface. There are all kinds of different themes and options to really make your site your own.
Cloud computing is also going to continue to grow because it makes life so much easier. By moving your data to the cloud, you know that wherever you go, you will have access to the information that you need. Best of all, everything stays synched, so you don't have to worry about sending multiple versions of files back and forth. If your office isn't already making use of the cloud, it's time to check it out.
