Elevated Content Regarding SaaS Technology
This past week saw a wide variety of news, blogs and videos regarding SaaS content management and cloud computing all over the web. In this blog, we will highlight a few of them. In August, during Ilta '09, A group from ii3 consultants produced live Ilta TV broadcasts of conference events and interviews. They have now posted the recordings of the broadcasts online and made them free to the public. One of the segments was called, "Software as a Service for Law Firms," and featured Tim Hooks of Chester, Willcox & Saxbe, LLP, as well as David Clark of Jones and Waldo. They discussed emerging SaaS technologies, and how SaaS solutions have helped their firms by reducing IT costs, and enabling their lawyers to practice law more efficiently.
Ride a wave within NetDocuments
At the end of August, at Ilta '09, the NetDocuments management team announced the development of a Google Wave integration. The release of the integration will coincide with the Google development plan. This announcement has sparked the interest of many people excited about the potential of Google Wave. One of these people is the Google Wave blogger. When Google announced Google Wave, he immediatley saw the potential it offered and started his blog. One of his first posts was titled, "5 Things Wrong with Google Wave." Number four on that list was lack of integration with MS Office. However, he saw a solution to that problem when he heard about what NetDocuments was doing.
