LegalTech New York 2011 is upon us and hot off the heels of my FY11 predictions blog, we're tackling the prickly issue of managing information in the cloud head on. For those not savvy to the information governance issues of managing information to/from and in the cloud, a good intro is the Virtual LegalTech session in December on "Addressing and Assessing the Risk of Moving to the Cloud" where myself, Tom Gelbmann and Wayne Matus laid out the concerns. I've also been busy podcasting for Enterprise Technology Management (ETM) on the same subject, so if you want to gain more insight then feel free to read and listen at http://www.globaletm.com/podcast/preservation-and-privacy.
In short, what are the concerns? Well, first just ask yourself a few questions and you'll see why the topic is complex.

It's easy to offer yearly predictions based on a wave of momentum that surrounds the software industry. In 2010, however, some significant things happened in the information world, which are bound to result in some significant feats of organizational change in 2011.
Consider the issues surrounding information security with WikiLeaks and the continued and evolving success of social media and Facebook fueling expectations of the demise of traditional email. Let's also not forget the acquisitions that took place in 2010 as a result of vendors competing for the title of the best end-to-end eDiscovery solution to address escalating litigation costs.
Let's address each of these transformative events one by one.
