Cloud IT has been a buzz for some time now, and looks like its here to stay. With many of us perched firmly on the fence waiting to see what others do, its time we understand the true value, risks and tool up to assess all the options for our own firms, now and in the future.

This session will include a brief non-technical education into the types of Cloud available, the pros and cons of each, a risk analysis list, as well as an insight into current industry trends and what’s on the horizon.

 Achieving your firm’s Personal Best

Tying in with the ALPMA Benchmarking Survey, Andrew will present an overview of the results and delve further into the detail based on the results of participating AustLaw Firms.

Andrew will make some observations individually or as a whole and then discuss them further.  e.g. If the issue is lock up, why are you in that position?

The session could look at your “personal best” and what you can potentially achieve.
