With the rise of cloud computing in sectors like education, political bodies, medical centers; the law firms are also finding solace in the services of cloud computing as they are likely to benefit them in numerous ways.
Cloud computing is a known phenomena nowadays, yet there are many companies and divisional enterprises who have not deployed cloud computing as such. Call it ignorance, lack of resources or slow process of updating to new technologies; many sections of the world are still aloof of the ways in which cloud computing can benefit them. However, joining the league of those who are in for cloud computing, are the law firms in New Zealand.
In New Zealand, the law firms are being lured towards cloud computing as they are registering the fact that cloud computing can help them facilitate their data and their records in a much secure and steadfast way.
The New Zealand lawyers are gradually submitting to the cloud services as they have discovered gradually that cloud computing can provide absolute secure and reliable storage to their data centers. The law firms contain data that needs to be evaluated, stored, and referred back again and again. Thus when lawyers have to address difference cases they need to check in the data and history for that relevant case which consumes a lot of time and energy of course. Therefore, in this view, the cloud computing technology can render efficient access to remote data centers where the law firms can entrust their data and access them whenever they want to!
Mr. Todd, a lawyer based in New Zealand says, “I’ve worked with computer technology in my previous law practice and, once my head was around cloud computing, I was keen to move away from the expensive and limited software of the past. Action Step, with the AS Legal workflows built in, demonstrated to me that firms who are deeply invested in old technology are constrained.”
The cost of the previously used software was high as they charged immensely for the restoration of their respective data and also gave limited access in the binds of time and date. The companies who are running their law structures based on these old softwares are way behind the globally aware and updated law firms. Thus to reduce the fear of lacking behind and feeling easy to access data that may be from any year or time; the New Zealand law firms have candidly submitted to cloud. Let’s see whether their law firms reach new heights with the assistance of cloud or not
