Posted by Gaby Isturiz on February 16, 2018 at 9:50 AM


The time has come to address the elephant in the room of legal technology once and for all: it’s time to say goodbye to on-premise software. Chances are, that statement is not a shock and you’ve been considering making the switch to SaaS-based cloud solutions. According to a study conducted by North Bridge Venture Partners, “45% of businesses say they already, or plan to, run their company from the cloud - showing how integral the cloud is to business.” The survey also points to the continual shift to cloud-based applications, noting an adoption rate that has grown from 13% in 2011 to 74% in 2017.

Posted by Gaby Isturiz on October 24, 2017 at 1:31 PM

SaaS adoption is on the rise in almost every industry right now - and the legal industry is no exception. This is a good thing for law firms as SaaS requires less resources to install and manage, and provides up-to-date offerings. A recent article published on TechRadar.com discussed the continued prominence of SaaS for today’s enterprises: “Last year's annual global survey of CIOs by Gartner found that 72% of respondents are already using SaaS, yet the results demonstrated there still has potential for greater adoption. In another study by KPMG, nearly half of executives surveyed identified cloud-delivered SaaS as their most likely area for investment. While Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) are frequently hailed as fundamental to cloud computing, it is actually SaaS that's proved it is here to stay.”
