Houston: The Legal Desktop in Flux

Wednesday, June 28, 2017, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM CT

The Legal Desktop in Flux

Lunch Sponsor: Litéra

Description:
Changes in technology drive change in legal. As law firms are pushed to stay more current with updates to software applications, the old model of customizing an off-the-shelf application to perfectly fit a firm's needs is becoming unsustainable. Security is increasingly important and constantly changes -- which means applications require patching and updating, further complicated by client security audits. As the Windows desktop changes to a forced upgrade model, legal vendors scrambling to keep up may focus more on fixing compatibility and security issues than updating product features. Custom integrations between applications require more frequent updating because everything is in flux. All this upgrading is a complex and expensive process that might not even directly benefit the client.

At this roundtable event, we'll hold an open discussion on what firms are doing to address these issues and ask for your contributions to the conversation on topics that may include:

  • Addressing vendors/software that just can't keep up
  • New software trends (customizations law firms still want, security at the forefront, software road map aligning with MS updates, etc.)
  • Client audits driving change

The success of this discussion will rely upon your input, so please come prepared to participate and share your thoughts, ideas and challenges.
