The Rising Prominence of Cloud DMS

The use of externally hosted systems is a hot topic in today’s legal technology world.  Once considered a non-starter, there is an emerging openness to the use of systems and data residing outside of the traditional “behind the firewall” infrastructure model.  The change in approach has followed the broader business technology trend towards more efficient and effective use of external infrastructure available through Cloud-based and SaaS systems.  Document management has followed a similar course with a keen interest in law firms and corporate law departments evaluating these new models.
