Will SharePoint become an essential solution for law firms? The folks at Handshake software think so, and recent momentum in the SharePoint-for-law-firms market space seems to prove the point. A look at the vendor roster at the ILTA SharePoint Symposium (which starts today) also seems to underscore the momentum. SharePoint is a platform (remember Lotus Notes) and relies on vendors or developers to deliver ‘applications’. Handshake is a great example of development-on-SharePoint to deliver real added value. Not a member of ILTA? – you should be even if you’re not in the IT Department.
