Welcome to the Strategic Technology Forum: The annual meeting place for legal technology leaders
12-14 June 2013
Grand Hotel Palazzo della Fonte
I am delighted to announce that Strategic Technology Forum 2013 will be held near Rome in the beautiful Italian hillside retreat of the Grand Hotel Palazzo Della Fonte. The programme will build on the resounding success of our 2012 conference programme and will entrench the forum as the premier global gathering for CIOs, IT directors and law firm leaders.
The event is designed to explore the power of technology as an enabler for law firm innovation, best practice and efficiency. Now in its eighth year, the forum is extensively researched to offer unparalleled opportunities to discuss the strategic by-product of technology alongside the culture and business environment of the firm itself. 2013 promises to marry leading speakers from legal and non-legal spheres with the most pressing strategic IT challenges and opportunities.
The forum will allow you to spend quality time with your peers in the idyllic Italian countryside whilst gaining business-critical ideas that will help you and your firm to prosper in the forthcoming year.
Key format highlights
- Practical case studies woven throughout the programme
- Gain new perspectives on your legal challenges from unique non-legal speakers
- An extensive social programme to foster ‘off the record ideas exchange'
- A return to a warmer climate in order to enable informal 'al fresco' networking
Topics for 2013
- Adopting a flexible approach to embracing new technology rather than a predictive one
- Designing next generation business intelligence systems
- Discover the art of fine tuning your mobile security offering
- ‘What if' scenario: designing an ideal cloud infrastructure and understanding how to get there
- Discovering the future trends in legal services consumption and client/law firm interface.
- Understanding the potential benefits of predictive decision-making
- More on project management and business analysis and the implementation of projects
- Big data deluge: Satisfying instant access demands whilst keeping your head above water
