The most important technology advancement in recent times has been cloud computing. Cloud computing has enabled businesses to leverage on the power of the ‘cloud’ in developing quality products at amazingly low cost. The cloud revolution includes everything from music and DVDs, maps and cars to business application software.
For example, with cloud technology, customers need not buy and use individual paper maps when they can purchase a GPS system and get maps of the entire planet online. Similarly, there is no need to buy and install eDiscovery and litigation support software when it is available on the Internet.
In 2009, more than 84% of Am Law 200 firms and 76% of U.S. companies used at least one cloud-delivered application to lower capital expenditures and reduce dedicated headcount for support, while drastically reducing application deployment time.
When businesses switch to cloud computing deployment, they can completely eliminate maintenance costs which used to be very high while using traditional on-premise software. Cloud computing-based e-Discovery software enables clients to bring eDiscovery in-house via the cloud and uniquely provides enterprise-class disaster recovery and business continuity planning (BCP) to secure and protect confidential client information
Cloud based technology is highly secure and is considered the best solution in currently by leading law firms. Businesses can control the process, data and access, without incurring the costs, risks and time delays inherent in the on-premise software deployments or, the headaches involved with getting IT department to modify the corporate network and security standards to allow outside counsel and service providers to access on-premise eDiscovery software.
