The Wortzmans team is now in its third day at ILTA in Nashville. We’ve met many vendors and attended a number of educational seminars, but there is always more to do.
Here are a few innovations and new systems:
Microsoft has entered the legal case management arena with their Matter Center add on for SharePoint 2013. Although still at the beta stage, it looks like it might get legal record managers to start considering Sharepoint as a viable DMS system.
Some vendors are embracing predictive analytics in different ways, including one vendor touting their proof reading software that learns writing styles, and a DMS system that learns how to automatically classify emails into appropriate legal files.
New wearable technology is also being exhibited, including a ring that, when worn, will automatically authenticate the wearer to other devices, such as a smartphone, laptop, or a building security system.
The overriding theme of the conference is that technology advances, while disruptive, can be a vehicle for positive change.
