Select Legal Breakfast Seminars, Cloud Vs On-Premise – A Unique Decision For Every Law Firm


Hessle, East Yorkshire (PRWEB UK) 8 October 2013

Many Partners are currently considering the merits of cloud computing but at the same time they recognise the need to protect their firm’s investment in existing inhouse infrastructure. This seminar programme, which offers four dates at four locations, is designed to present a balanced view of ‘cloud’ vs ‘on-premise’ for law firms to enable informed IT decision-making.

Delegates attending will hear from a selection of LAWFUSION users – including Cartwright King, Pepperells Solicitors, H & R Hughes and Silver Fitzgerald – re their experiences with the ‘cloud’ vs ‘on-premise’ decision. They will share details re what they have chosen and why. Attendees will also receive a practical checklist of key points all law firms should consider when contemplating a move to the cloud.

Steve Dixon, Co-owner and Development Director at Select Legal said, “Our breakfast seminars are short and to the point starting at 8.30 am until 10.30 am. Registration opens and 7.45 am when breakfast will be served. This seminar is for anyone working for a law firm involved with making strategic IT decisions for the Practice.”

The breakfast seminar dates and locations are:

1.    Tuesday 15 Oct – London

2.    Wednesday 23 Oct – South Yorkshire

3.    Thursday 7 Nov – Leicestershire

SEMINAR HOTLINE: If you wish to speak to someone at Select Legal about the breakfast seminars – there is a dedicated hotline open 9am-5pm weekdays – 01482 628883.

Steve Dixon, Select Legal Director added, “We were one of the first legal software suppliers to offer a cloud option to lawyers back in 2008, but cloud is not right for every firm at this moment. Every situation is unique and there is much to consider. Select Legal has hundreds of happy users in both camps using LAWFUSION to run and grow their businesses and having been in the legal software business for 20 years+ we are well positioned to help law firms make this decision. These seminars are designed to outline the key considerations decision makers at law firms will need to make re the cloud vs on-premise dilemma.”

LAWFUSION is of course available as a traditional ‘on-premise’ option too for law firms that wish to host their own software on their own servers inhouse.

After the Revolution in Touch Computing Made Possible by Windows 8, Senior Care Corner?s New Tips for Selecting Computers for Seniors

After the Revolution in Touch Computing Made Possible by Windows 8, Senior Care Corner’s New Tips for Selecting Computers for Seniors

Senior Care Corner

Greenville, SC (PRWEB) October 30, 2012

The art of selecting a computer for senior loved ones was redefined going into the 2012 holiday season by Microsoft’s introduction of Windows 8 and the accompanying announcements of new computing devices utilizing the Windows 8 touchscreen capability. Among the beneficiaries are older adults and the family members seeking to demonstrate how easy it is to gain the benefits of going online and participating in social networking.

Reflecting this major change in product offerings, and both the opportunities and confusion that it may drive just as the shopping season begins, Senior Care Corner has developed new tips for those choosing computing gifts for senior loved ones.

“We’re thrilled by the opportunity the wide range of touchscreen devices offers to seniors previously unable to use or uncomfortable using computers” says Barry Birkett of Senior Care Corner. “We want to help family caregivers and other loved ones open new doors for older adults through the web and social networking.”

Considerations When Selecting Computing Devices for Seniors

Taking into account these points can improve the likelihood a device purchased for a senior loved one will provide enjoyment and other benefits well after a gift is unwrapped.

Consider how the device will be used.

    If intended for basic web access, reading e-books and document creation, there typically isn’t a need the fastest and most expensive processors or large amounts of memory.
    Applications such as home movie editing or game playing benefit from faster processors and greater amounts of both RAM and storage memory as well as larger screens or monitors.

Consider where the device will be used.

    When use is to be limited to a single location, such as a desk or table at home, desktop or all-in-one computers can be an economical way to buy any level of capability with the plus of greatest screen size optionality, both for touch and non-touch screens.
    If mobility is needed, whether within the home or for travel, a laptop, tablet or one of the new convertibles (laptops that convert to be used as tablets) provide the greatest flexibility but also tradeoffs between screen size and ease of portability.

Consider how the device will connect to the web.

    Use exclusively at home for those aging in place, the homes of family members, or other areas with Wi-Fi, including public hotspots, can mean that the built-in Wi-Fi capability in most portable devices should be sufficient.
    Devices used where Wi-Fi is not available, or if private or sensitive information (such as banking or healthcare data) is to be communicated or viewed over the web, cellular broadband capability should be considered. This is an option in many devices or may be added via USB attachment or portable hotspot from cellular companies. Note that many smartphones can be “tethered” to computers and tablets to connect them to the web.

Consider any physical limitations of the intended users.

    Larger screens may provide greatest access and enjoyment to those with reduced vision.
    Touchscreens, now widely available in all sizes with devices using Windows 8, may provide greatest access to those whose manual dexterity is limited, such as by arthritis or injury.

Consider compatibility with devices used by family and friends.

    File sharing, especially with documents, is often easiest with compatible devices.
    Family members providing “tech support” to seniors may be limited in their ability to address issues on devices that are not compatible with their own.
