You’re probably aware that the U.S. is the most litigious country in the world. Over breakfast today, I was reading an article touting the benefits of cloud-based computing. The comments from one executive were interesting and really gave me pause. The executive said: “It’s easier to do discovery for litigation if the data is all on central servers instead of spread out on PCs.” I don’t know about you, but I don’t think that an easier discovery process would be a big motivator for me or many other executives who may be considering moving data to the cloud. Somehow, making it easier for lawyers is not the ROI most companies are looking for. On the other hand, if you’re a large legal firm, just imagine the possibilities.
