You’ve been informed that your law firm’s servers are approaching “end of life” (EOL), and you have to make an IT decision soon. You likely invested quite a lot of time, research and money into your firm’s current technology, and you may feel less than thrilled about going through the IT planning and purchase process all over again.
Adopting tech that’s new to your firm may seem like a bigger challenge than keeping your old on-site model. Despite expressing frustration with the cost and hassle of updates, downtime, and capital expenditure, some law firms still lean toward on-site systems – just because they are comfortable with what’s familiar.
If you’re like most lawyers, referring to your days as “busy” is a gross understatement. The last thing you need is computer problems getting in the way of your productivity. Even when your IT is working well, managing systems and supervising IT consultants is a chore, and can put a strain on your budget.
