Thomson Reuters recently announced the launch of hosted practice technology, which is a comprehensive cloud-based suite of litigation solutions. This launch incorporates two core products for case analysis and ediscovery – Case Notebook and CaseLogistix – into a cloud deployment. Hosted practice technology provides the exact same capabilities and functionality as if the solution were installed on-site. The difference is that the software and data are hosted centrally in Thomson Reuters’ state-of-the-art data centers, rather than being hosted locally within the firm.

In the video clip below, Kris Nimsger, managing director of Litigation Solutions, discusses how hosted practice technology aligns with the longer term strategy to bring our products closer together in a more integrated way.

“This launch allows our products to be more cloud-capable and open, bringing the functionality to where the lawyers are already working, and this technology helps us advance that vision,” said Nimsger. “The AmLaw Tech survey over the past three years has shown increasing adoption rates over a broad spectrum of cloud technologies, particularly where there are a lot of storage needs for data, and these two product releases align with that broader market trend. “

Nimsger goes on to explain that our customers are increasingly demanding solutions that allow them to control the costs in litigation, and having our two core products be in a hosted environment allows them to control infrastructure costs. “They don’t have to buy servers and hire people to manage them,” she said. “It allows them to gain on-demand access to the information and the data storage as needed, and it allows them to do what they need to do most, which is collaborate much more effectively in an open and mobile capacity.”
