Anurag Malik, Chief Technology Officer at ContractPodAi, paints a great visual on contracts, “Viewing your company’s agreement-related data – without the benefit of a contract analysis solution – is like looking at the surface of the ocean to try to understand what is deep under the water. You can see what is happening ‘above the water,’ of course, yet miss out on the ecosystems of information and insights lying beneath the surface.” He lays out five goals for a contract analysis tool: 1) Understanding Historical Trends; 2) Completing Data Migration; 3) Increasing Renewal and Win-Back Rates; 4) Becoming Device Agnostic and Offering Secure, Reliable Cloud Services; and 5) Easing Customization.

Books: still fruity in biglaw

Our physical library has diminished to the point that reading the first part of this post actually surprised me. “In law firms’ ‘new normal,’ lawyers may have to quarantine books for 72 hours before they’re placed back into rotation.” I understand the precautions, but wouldn’t have expected it to be such a huge deal in 2020. “Ending print subscriptions is ‘low-hanging fruit'” was low hanging fruit a decade ago. With the pandemic, I would think it should be more like shoveling the rotten fruit off the ground.

Ten years!? Try three.

Vol. 20, No. 207

This post is an apt one as many of us are in, or beginning our budget cycles for 2021. None of us could have foreseen and properly prepared for 2020 and we’re honestly still making some guesses as to what 2021 will look like. I have to say the title and thrust of his post irked me. First of all, the question, “Where will your law firm be in ten years?” is a very aged concept. Can you honestly answer that? Back in the 80s and 90s we were coming off ten year plans in favor of a shorter, more practical five year plans. Today, three years is more common. And given the further acceleration of technology, even that can be difficult. Second of all, I’m a big believer in “People, Process and Technology,” which means technology is the last of the things you think about. I get the Wolters Kluwer’s “The Future Ready Lawyer” report and the grouping of firms into Leading, Transitioning and Trailing buckets, but let’s be realistic. “Where will your law firm be in three years?” Read more at Law Technology Today: Law firms still aren’t budgeting for technology

Ruth Carter writes her post from the lawyer to lawyer framework, but frankly I see key concepts that help me as CIO to lawyer and CIO to anyone. Afterall, it has been my experience that assholery is not limited to just those with JDs. Ruth concludes with a sentiment that I think we can all agree to, “In a perfect world, asshole tactics and behaviors would be discouraged in law school as well as in law firms and all places of employment.” Read more at attorney at work: Advocacy Without Assholery
