iManage Work Provides Low-Risk Way for Firms to Reduce Their Dependence on Thomson Reuters Elite Envision CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Feb 23, 2017) - iManage today announced that a growing number of law firms are selecting iManage Work as an effective way to transition off the Thomson Reuters Elite Envision practice management system as it approaches end-of-life. To date, more than 20 Envision customers use iManage Cloud or iManage Work on-premises for document and email management, including Bond Dickinson LLP; Burness Paull LLP; Fox Williams LLP; Harper Macleod LLP; Kemp Little LLP; Lindsays; Pemberton Greenish LLP; Stewarts Law LLP; Thomson Snell & Passmore; Turcan Connell WS; Wedlake Bell; and Wright Hassall LLP, among other leading firms. Siddhartha Mankad, chief operating officer of Kemp Little LLP, a top 200 UK law firm, saw the move from Envision to iManage as a way to empower users with technology that could help them do their jobs better. "Beyond being end-of-lifed, Envision's functionality wasn't enough for our needs," Mankad explained. "iManage Cloud offered a way to give our users better document and email management, all accessible through a highly reliable and secure hybrid cloud service." "This is a low-risk, high-benefit way for law firms to move off of Envision while selecting a market-leading Work Product Management solution that will fit their needs now and into the future," said Geoff Hornsby, iManage General Manager, EMEA. "iManage Work is safe and secure, and gives customers the choice of doing either an on-premises deployment or a cloud service." "For our firm, it made a lot of sense to replace the document management system piece of the Envision functionality with iManage Work," said Ian Beattie, chief operating officer of Lindsays. "Right away, we could improve our document and email management capabilities, while reducing our overall reliance on an end-of-lifed product." iManage Work has the added benefit of already integrating with most of the popular practice management systems that law firms might choose to move to in the future -- further simplifying the transition off of Envision. "When we were evaluating replacements for Envision, it became clear that iManage was our best option because of its integrations," said Michael Kinnear, IT manager at Pemberton Greenish LLP, a UK-based law firm specializing in Real Estate, Private Wealth, and Corporate law. "We've deployed iManage Work on-premises to nearly 100 users at our firm, with the confidence that it will work with whatever our next practice management system might be."

Leading Technology Law Firm Impressed by Product Innovation and Future Direction of iManage Cloud CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Nov 3, 2016) -  iManage today announced that Kemp Little LLP, a top 200 UK law firm, has selected iManage Cloud for its Work Product Management needs. iManage Cloud delivers rapid implementation, industry leading functionality, integration with key professional tools, full functionality when connected and not, and optimized performance when working with large documents, all with the agility and economic advantages of cloud solutions. With iManage Cloud, Kemp Little will gain on-demand access to iManage Work for document and email management and iManage Share for secure file collaboration with clients -- through a low monthly subscription fee. More than wanting the very best technology to manage and govern their critical documents and emails, the firm wanted a platform for increasing user satisfaction and delivering better client service. Initially, iManage was not on Kemp Little's short list of cloud vendors to consider -- it wasn't even on the long list. "We expected the same old system that had been around for many years," said Siddhartha Mankad, chief operating officer of Kemp Little. "Upon seeing a demonstration, I was very impressed by what they had done in the first year of the new iManage. iManage is really investing in thinking about how the entire suite should evolve with and for today's users, they are studying the work habits of today's new professionals and designing the system to reflect how they work." "We're not interested in 'technology for the sake of technology,'" continued Mankad. "We're interested in technology that empowers our people and makes it easier for them to get their key jobs done -- which enhances what they can do for our clients. Our selection team, which included both IT staff and lawyers, conducted a detailed and in-depth competitive study of other cloud-based document and email management providers in the marketplace, but the new iManage was clearly the best choice." Other key factors influencing Kemp Little's decision included the iManage vision for the Work Product Management platform, iManage's impressive product innovation, and iManage Labs which is the company's research and development organization dedicated to exploring how advanced data analytics, new technologies and new forms of computing transform how professionals work today. "It's a strong vote of confidence in our vision to have the leading technology law firm in the UK select our cloud offering to deliver market-leading Work Product Management," said Geoff Hornsby, iManage's general manager, EMEA. "With iManage Cloud, Kemp Little will gain all the power and functionality of iManage in a secure cloud that offers performance, governance, and high availability. This is what modern cloud computing that is specifically designed to meet the needs of professional firms and their clients looks like."

This paper comments on UK government's Open Standards Consultation which opened on 7 February 2012. It questions the UK government's mandating of open standards defined as standards which include patents licensed on a royalty free basis. The paper suggests that instead of promoting a level playing field, the government's policy will actually restrict competition and hinder interoperability. This policy is contrary to EU policy in a number of different fields which have all accepted, despite significant in-depth debate on this issue, that the best way to ensure the most effective competition, innovation and interoperability is to allow both royalty free patents and royalty bearing patents to compete provided the latter are licensed on FRAND terms. Lastly the paper suggests that the public procurement rules are not the place to apply industrial policy, instead a full market analysis should be conducted involving other government departments such as BIS and the IPO. © 2012 Eliza Mik.

Sitting at the heart of m-commerce and at the intersection of the value chains of the payments, mobile, retail and technology industries, mobile payments are set to grow rapidly in the short and medium terms. M-payments are giving rise to the development of a new ecosystem of market participants including card schemes, MNOs, retailers, device suppliers, service providers and trusted service managers. Key regulatory considerations arising include e-money and payment services, mobile services regulation, consumer protection, data privacy and standards. The contractual landscape linking the various parties inhabiting the ecosystem is also rapidly developing, with key issues around revenue models, customer ownership, technology development, and risk and liability. Parties involved in mobile payments will need to carefully assess their and others' roles and regulatory aspects in determining their strategy and how to approach contractual discussions. © 2013 Ioanna Magklasi.

It is now apposite to speak of the data centric world. Businesses are paying ever more attention to their own, and others data, as a way of adding value to the organisation and conferring competitive advantage. This in turn is focusing attention on legal rights in data across many business sectors, where were starting to see more disputes. Data is funny stuff in and of itself - effectively inert in legal terms. It is more precise to speak of legal rights in relation to data. Those rights are IP rights - copyright, database right, confidentiality, patents and trade marks - and contract rights. Each IP right has its own rules, and applying those rules to data leads to a complex, multi-layered analysis where the law is unsettled and uncertain. This means that data is an area where contract is very often king, so most businesses regulate access to data by means of a series of agreements. The most commonly contested points in negotiations are around licence scope, derived data, commingled data and post term use. © 2011 Hogan Lovells. Published by Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

The EU institutions are increasingly addressing harmonisation by means of regulation rather than the traditional use of directives. This is particularly impacting areas such as data protection, financial services regulation and European standardisation in Information and Communications Technology. More broadly, using directly applicable regulations which may have horizontal and vertical direct effect rather than directives has important administrative and constitutional implications for their application in national law and impacts on Member States' discretion to implement supplementary legislation which falls within the remit of the regulation in question. This is of particular concern where governments implement policies which might be in contravention of these rules. This may be the case in relation to the UK government's public procurement policy which mandates royalty free standards rather than royalty bearing standards with the option for the licence holder to licence royalty free. © 2013 Kemp Little LLP.
