Leveraging Your SharePoint Investment

Here is an interesting press item from the folks at Handshake Software, discussing an increase in demand they are seeing for their SharePoint-based portal and enterprise search solutions. Makes sense to me: given the direction underway toward alternative fee structures, internal efficiency and tight budget management are essential ingredients to law firm profitability.

The Handshake solutions can deliver information dashboards that help lawyers avoid those unfortunate surprises that blow up a budget and kill the profitability of a matter.

Read about Handshake.

Must Read Articles

Thanks to Steven J. Harper, writing at his Belly of the Beast blog (article at that link), for a well reported story on Elon University School of Law and their strategic plan for enrollments. Its an interesting read, and reveals the significant challenges facing all law schools (surviving in market where the demand for their product is declining).

Dropbox Hacked? True or not - follow the good practice of changing your password(s). I recommend implementing 2-factor authentication whenever and wherever possible on the web. Its available on Dropbox.

Heenan Blaikie getting ugly.

In the 'things to think about' category, Mike Barry, EVP Strategy & Product at Aderant, pens an interesting article about the intersection between pricing and value. Its an interesting read that draws out the importance of planning, managing budgets, and delivering value. Delivering value? How often do you ask your client how they define value? And remember - this definition will change from matter to matter.
