We often speak of using technology in terms of adoption. But, this over-simplifies the experience to nothing more than purchasing a device and plugging it in. For example, how often do we hear of schools that boast of their use of technology by buying an iPad for every student, only to hear that the devices sit on the shelves all day? Rather than focus on technology adoption, we ought to work towards technology integration, which is a much more holistic paradigm. Integration is a way of thinking; it implies the development of a culture. It implies that the technology becomes an extension of us – a place that connects our mind with our work. The technology then becomes a tool we habitually turn to when we wish to improve our productivity and learning.

There is a fundamental difference in cloud-based document management vs. cloud storage of documents. In the 15+ years that we have been in the cloud, we often hear confusion regarding the two popular, yet very contrasting options. When considering what is right for your firm, there are 3 key considerations that need to be made. There are other considerations that can be mentioned that are not listed above for document management, such as metadata profiling, advanced searching options, workspaces, and client extranets, to name a few, but the bottom line is that document storage providers do not provide the level of sophistication that law firms require. A good document management system will have environments for permanent storage that can be tucked away in a secure environment when a document has met its end-of-life, while keeping all management aspects on the front line of current and active documents.
