LTNY 2008: Tuesday Morning Panel Reports from KM Space

Goodwin Procter real estate attorney/knowledge management guru Doug Cornelius over at KM Space reports on several LegalTech panels this morning:

Legal Technology Best Practices:
The panel ranged from electronic discovery to KM. But Weil, Gotshal & Manges CIO Ian Miller found time to pooh-pooh "the idea of digital dictation and automated fax delivery," Cornelius says. "He thinks they are dinosaurs. Dictation is fading away and faxes are fading away as a way to deliver. He would prefer that someone scan the document and email it." He's not the only one trying to get rid of law firm faxes.

Creating Efficiency and Productivity in Law Firms Today: XMLAW and SharePoint:
Former Goodwin Procter development team leader Rob Saccone opens his xmLaw product demo with a helpful calculation. Cornelius reports, "There is a dollar value to not finding information. It easy to apply a number of lost hours and amplify it by the number of attorneys and their billing rate to create a huge value number to the amount of time it takes to find the information they need. His approach is put a layer on top of your underlying systems. This gives a more consistent user interface and more consistent way of finding the information they need. For it to be effective it needs to be embedded in their regular way of working."
