New Professionals Drive Changes to Legal IT Solutions to Increase Adoption and Productivity

The new attorney today has become accustomed getting the information he or she needs, from their preferred devices, whenever and wherever they are. They need Work Product Management solutions that are intuitive and improve productivity.

Neil Araujo, the CEO and co-founder of iManage, the leading provider of Work Product Management solutions for legal, accounting, government and financial services firms, will be a featured speaker November 19 at Legal Tech Asia in Singapore. During his presentation, “Consumerization of IT and its Impact on Driving User Adoption & Productivity”, Araujo will summarize research conducted by iManage into the emergence of the mobile, tech savvy, “new” attorney. The new attorney is a mindset not necessarily linked to age. Whether senior associates, or the new generation of firm management, these attorneys are demanding change in the applications and tools that they use based in part on their experiences using consumer-like applications in their everyday lives. It is this mindset that is driving changes in how Legal IT is expected to operate.

“The new attorney today has become so accustomed getting the information he or she needs, from their preferred devices, whenever and wherever they are,” said Araujo. “But often, the software and mobility solutions at their firms have not kept up with the times, which can lead them to ‘go rogue’ and expose the firm to unnecessary risk. iManage is addressing these issues by delivering Work Product Management solutions that are intuitive to use and proven to increase adoption and improve productivity.”

Araujo, who has more than 20 years of experience in the enterprise software market, will explain how law firms and corporate legal departments can ensure that their technology investments will be embraced by users, and discuss the types of innovations that resonate with the new professional. His presentation will take place from 11:20 a.m. to 12:20 p.m. at the Marina Bay Sands.
