What Are You Waiting For!

Legal IT Insider and enterprise cloud provider Nutanix gathered with law firm IT leaders from some of the UK’s leading firms to discuss where they are on the journey towards moving their infrastructure to the cloud, what the barriers are,
and what the roadmap looks like.

Despite wide adoption in other sectors, most law firms are still at the very beginning of their journey towards moving their infrastructure to the cloud, albeit that public consensus and, you could argue, sheer common sense suggest that is the direction of travel.

Much centres on the client: financial institutions, for one, are positively allergic to the word cloud when it comes to their legal advisers, although internally the picture is often less clear.

In something of a volte-face, security is now mostly a driver rather than inhibitor, and wherever they currently sit on the cloud roadmap, most big law firms are looking seriously at their cloud options.

But with a mishmash of case management systems and a legitimate fear over performance and cost issues, the real question is not just when but precisely what arrangement to put in place.
