Colligo at the ILTA 2010 Conference in Las Vegas

The Colligo team participated at another interesting conference last week, this time the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) Conference in Las Vegas. We were invited to participate by Microsoft who graciously shared their booth space with us. The legal industry is very important to Microsoft as law firms and legal departments of all sizes are deploying SharePoint for matter management faster than ever before. In fact, we spoke with many law firm CIOs and CTOs, and were told empathically that it’s not a matter of “if” they’ll deploy SharePoint but “when” they’ll deploy SharePoint.

Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference – Bigger and Better Than Ever

Ed Kaczor, our VP of Sales, spent last week in Washington, DC at the 2010 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference. Over 13,000 people participated in this year’s conference, far surpassing last year’s attendance, which is a very good sign for the coming year. The conference featured some high profile speakers, including a keynote by former President Bill Clinton titled “Embracing our Common Humanity” in which he discussed where he sees the world going and the role that technology plays in reducing global disparities.

Another very interesting keynote speaker was Kevin Turner, Microsoft’s Chief Operating Officer. Kevin’s presentation covered a lot of ground but some important take-aways were Microsoft’s impressive success in building market share and the continuing success of SharePoint in the global market place. SharePoint has been Microsoft’s fastest server product to hit $1 billion in revenue and Kevin predicts it will also be the fastest to $2 billion. Another important take-away was Microsoft’s commitment to “cloud computing” with a focus on its BPOS Business Productivity Online Suite offering.

Ryan Duguid, Microsoft’s Senior Product Manager for ECM, was the guest speaker at our very successful webinar on “SharePoint 2010: What’s New for Email Management?” During the webinar we received several questions from attendees, some of which Ryan was able to answer live.

How do we educate users on what emails need to be declared as a record?

The decision about what email should be declared as a record varies from one organization to the next depending on specific internal requirements as well as industry and government regulations. In general though, any email correspondence that is considered to be evidence of business activities and transactions would constitute a record. Two of the most prominent definitions of what constitutes a record are:
