Solid, actionable data on what law firms are actually doing with technology can be surprisingly hard to find. In the medium and large firm space, the annual ILTA/InsideLegal Technology Purchasing Survey provides detailed and comprehensive data about what law firms have been implementing and planning. The good news is that the 2011 Survey has just been released. In this episode, Dennis Kennedy and Tom Mighell dig into this year’s Survey, identify some key trends and developments, and suggest what this data might mean for law firms for the next year. After you listen, be sure to check out Tom & Dennis’ co-blog and book by the same name, The Lawyers Guide to Collaboration Tools and Technologies.
On this edition of The Un-Billable Hour, host Attorney Rodney Dowell, Director of the Massachusetts Law Office Management Assistance Program, welcomes JoAnna Forshee, CEO of InsideLegal and Jobst Elster, Head of Content for InsideLegal.com, to take an inside look at the 2010 International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) Conference and findings from the 2010 InsideLegal/ILTA Member Technology Purchasing Survey. JoAnna and Jobst discuss the collaboration between ILTA and InsideLegal, the strategy and marketing sessions offered at the ILTA conference and what these survey results mean to vendors.
Most discussion of the use of technology by law firms tends to be anecdotal. That’s why the annual release of the InsideLegal/ILTA Member Technology Purchasing Survey is welcome news for those looking for the numbers on which to base decisions and spot trends. In this episode, co-hosts Dennis Kennedy and Tom Mighell will dig into the survey and draw a few conclusions of their own.
