IRIS Nederland announced today that the company has realized a 25 percent growth in customers in the first semester of 2022 compared to 2021. Underpinning this business growth has been a nearly 300% increase in iManage Work document and email management solution deployments in the cloud in the DACH region.
The legal profession is steadily increasing its trust and reliance on cloud. According to ILTA’s Tech Survey 2021, the ruling cloud philosophy for more than 40% of respondents is “cloud with every upgrade.”
The hybrid-working policy, that many organizations adopted over the course of the last years, is definitely one of the factors that has led to the increased demand for a robust and secure document management system.
In addition, IRIS also saw a remarkable uptrend in demand from its customers for process and workflow automation solutions. To meet this increasing demand, in 2022, IRIS has expanded its portfolio to include new solutions such as workflow automation tools, case/matter management, request management. These solutions help teams to eliminate repetitive and tedious work to free up resources which then can be used for strategic and high-value work. Besides immediate efficiency gains automation enables teams to provide a better service – and experience – to either internal as well as external stakeholders.
‘‘With the cloud becoming more popular in the DACH region, we expect this growth to continue in the second half of the year and following years with cloud transitions and migrations’’ said Ralph Willems, Account Manager DACH, IRIS Nederland. ‘’It’s clear cloud solutions offer more value than traditional on-premise deployments, to either IT teams in terms of application management as well as to end-users in terms of availability and features.’’
A recent research conducted by Gartner definitely supports the above mentioned expectations as they state that legal technology budgets will grow from 4% to 10% of total legal expenses by 2022.
