There is no one moment when SaaS (Cloud) Technology was conceived, because cloud services have been continually evolving and improving. Different sectors and verticals have moved towards Cloud solutions at different speeds and it is unavoidable that law firms will catch up. We all must assess the value proposition and determine our migration schedule. Success for cloud solutions rely on cloud delivery at scale, widely available connectivity, and enterprise-grade security.
Then there is the business model and marketing – not only do cloud service providers have to sustain the transformation from a CapEx to an OpEx model, they also have to educate their customers and how they can benefit. After all, the idea of renting rather than owning is challenging for some; and there are never ending concerns about data security, ownership and power of redress.
In the decade it has taken for cloud technology to become widely adopted, the beneficial characteristics of cloud solutions have become clear and compelling.
And now Artificial Intelligence is changing the cloud landscape and life as we know it.
