With this paper, we set out to help you assess your organisation's ability to anticipate change, focus on innovation, challenge the status quo and achieve greater success.
Once you have determined the current position of both your organisation and your IT team, you will be in a position to begin your Digital Transformation journey.
The most overwhelming disruptive influence on Legal right now is digitisation. Industry-specific challenges thrown up by digitisation covered in this paper include: the emergence of digital-native disruptors (e.g. DoNotPay, LegalZoom), the rise of customer demand for digital channels of communication, sector and regulatory pressures relating to the securing of sensitive data, and the importance of attracting a digital-native workforce.
But while digitisation throws up new obstacles, it is also presents the Legal sector with an abundance of opportunities. Above all, Digital Transformation promises to give Legal firms that key ‘X’ factor that they need to remain relevant in this fast-moving digital age: agility.
Agility is about being free to innovate and improve, and technologies such as digital automation - as well as optimising and economising various processes and services - promise to free IT teams of the burden of all sorts of time and labour-intensive activities.
