Rocket Matter is honored to partner with the New York City Bar Association to present a one-hour live webinar event, an exclusive for association members.
What is cloud computing? What are the implications for lawyers? What tools can I use in the cloud for my law practice?
Sometimes referred to as “Software as a Service” (SaaS), cloud computing is a category of software delivered over the internet rather than installed on a computer. It has become a common delivery model for many business applications.
For lawyers and law firms, computing in the cloud eliminates typical IT expenses, management, and headaches. Cloud options are often cost-effective, since they forego high, up-front costs in favor of predictable monthly fees, and provides mobility and flexibility.
Presenter: Larry Port
