Following a recent survey published by Forbes, it is clear that “Cloud Computing simply isn’t that scary any more”.
The survey refers to claims that “a meagre 3% of companies considering Cloud consider it to be too risky.”
It goes on to say “The bottom line is cloud is now just considered the normal way to implement software solutions.”
LawCloud supports this and has seen a consistent rise in the number of law firms in the UK adopting Cloud. It has added a live counter widget to the homepage of its web site showing that it now hosts 83 law firms on its Cloud platform (as at June 2012) and this figure is growing by the week. This is proof that Cloud is a natural way forward for both new starts and existing law firms looking to be Smart and make better use of technology.
The launch of Windows 8 is just around the corner and Microsoft has taken the decision to launch its own tablet device. Whilst the decision from Microsoft to deliver its own hardware for the Windows 8 platform is seen as controversial (in terms of alienating its hardware business partners such as Dell, Acer, HP etc), Microsoft sees this as the way forward and as real a rival to the iPad.
