Cloud Computing for my Law Firm: Is the Cloud a Threat to my Job or a Savior for my Department?
The migration to the cloud is happening faster than anyone could have predicted. You may not realize it, but many firms are already using cloud services. Solutions such as hosted email, online backup, and hosted CRM solutions are all cloud-based services. But there is still fear among many managers that the cloud may just be too risky from both a technology and staffing perspective. Is this fear legitimate? We’ve all heard horror stories about security breaches, data loss, and the infamous Amazon outages. Furthermore, doesn’t outsourcing to the cloud mean the IT staff will become redundant?
Join Greg Onoprijenko, President of e-ternity, a Mississauga-based provider of cloud computing services, as he highlights the pros and cons of cloud computing for law firms, explains the advantages of implementing a cloud computing strategy for your firm, warns you of the pitfalls to consider when evaluating various cloud services, and predicts what the role of the staff technology manager will be in the near future.
Our Speaker, Greg Onoprijenko, has enjoyed a 20+ year career in the technology space, including roles at organizations such as TELUS, EMC, Ricoh, and e-ternity.
