We’re past the decade mark and cloud service providers continue to find new and innovative ways to help businesses improve. While most small, mid-size, and enterprise-level organizations have taken advantage of cloud computing, there are a few holdout industries that remain moderately or even severely suspicious of losing control of their data and business functions to cloud service providers.
Lawyers reside in one of those industry sectors that have been slower to migrate. If your firm has been reluctant to join the cloud revolution it might be because, while you’re a great attorney, you really don’t know a lot about cloud service providers, what they offer, and what questions to ask before migrating to the cloud.
Sometimes lawyers need legal guidance too — especially when it comes to technology. This article looks at the best questions to ask your cloud service provider before you sign on the dotted line.
Best Questions for a Cloud Provider
The first discussion any law firm should hold with a potential cloud provider is a strategic one. The cloud provides many benefits, including the ability to access work functions on any device, and easy interoperability between software, applications, and platforms. Strategize with your IT consultant about what applications you’re currently using, what’s working, and what you’d like to improve upon. A good cloud solutions provider can help you understand which web-based programs can integrate with the digital tools you’re currently using, or if there are ways to streamline your existing workflows by moving to the cloud.
