LexisNexis postpone UK Enterprise Solutions user conference

LexisNexis yesterday announced that its Enterprise Solutions* User Conference – scheduled for the 7/8th November at Whittlebury Hall, Silverstone – is being postponed to March 2013. Lexis say they will be announcing the new date, venue and refreshed format in early October and “are already excited about what’s in store for our user community”.

Lexis go on to say “We have recently welcomed Alan Fraser** as General Manager to the Enterprise Solutions team and we want to ensure that Alan has time to establish himself before meeting you all at the next conference. As you will also be aware we currently have a lot of developments taking place within our product portfolio and the 2013 User Conference will be the ideal launch pad to communicate our future product strategies, roadmaps and vision.

“In the meantime we will be hosting a series of regional dinners throughout October and November to enable interested parties to meet with Alan and other members of the LexisNexis Executive team. If you would like to attend please email Heidi Cranfield on – alternatively please respond to the email invitation that you will be receiving in the next few weeks.”

* This is the legal software side of the business that includes the old Axxia and Visualfiles products

** We will be publishing a short interview with Alan next week

COMMENT: We have already heard some comment from other legal IT vendors – their attitude can best be summed up as time to break out the champagne.

One reply on “LexisNexis postpone UK Enterprise Solutions user conference”

Although I assume that your comment about ‘breaking out the champagne’ is crystal clear to proper legal IT vendors, I have only been in the business for 25 years and have no idea what you are on about. Are you, for example, saying that the delay in the user conference and/or the appointment of Alan Fraser somehow indicate problems at Lexis, providing a reason for their competitors to celebrate? Or is the suggestion that the main item is somehow good news for Lexis, who should therefore be breaking out their own bubbly?

I know that this is an ‘insider’ blog and that the uninitiated should not expect to follow everything that is being said but I would still be grateful for a bit of further explanation. I am especially interested because I first met the then-Solicitec founders at a legal IT exhibition in 1987 and have had a keen interest in the progress of the enterprise ever since, not least because their entire business model was almost the exact opposite of my own at Acculaw.
