The 2015 ILTA/InsideLegal Technology Purchasing Survey and the 2015 ABA Legal Technology Survey results are in! These surveys highlight the interest of IT professionals and lawyers in current technology. Listeners can use these results to analyze where they stand when it comes to technological proficiency and what competitors might be focusing on. Paying attention to trends in mobile, security, records and document management, social media, and the cloud could benefit solo and biglaw lawyers alike.

In this episode of The Kennedy-Mighell Report, Dennis Kennedy and Tom Mighell discuss key results from these important legal tech surveys, highlight the most interesting trends, and discuss ways that lawyers can use these results to inform and tailor their technology plans for the coming year. Although both Tom and Dennis agree that lawyers are behind the curve of technological adoption, they see an increased interest in security, big data, information governance, cloud computing, and overall proficiency. In most of these areas, however, they mention that lawyers are not as far progressed as they should be, and both hosts believe that those in the legal profession have become technologically complacent.

In the second half of this podcast, Tom and Dennis talk about their experiences with the Amazon Echo personal digital assistant. Although this product provides little in the way of professional assistance, there are many practical hands-free household uses. Tune in to hear what direction the hosts think dictation might go. As always, stay tuned for Parting Shots, that one tip, website, or observation you can use the second the podcast ends.
