CASE management? Knowledge management? Just the latest buzzwords or is there some there there? (as Gertrude Stein once questioned of Oakland, Calif.) We explore the query.
We also focus on small firms, devoting our MIS column to David Pearson's Apple-dominated office. Yup, it's that time again: our annual Mac Attack. Steve Jobs' keynote in San Francisco has become a January ritual. (I'm ignoring those of you who are snickering that I just wanted to escape New York frostbite. The weather was actually crummier in Calif. than the east.
Anyway: Yes, I know Mac has virtually no hold in legal (except for its 9 percent market share in small firms). But while this year's keynote was decidedly more subdued than last year's preview of OS X, it was very provocative. And yes, there's a legal angle. One word: iMovie2. Think litigation support. (See page 65.) And yeah, I'm already lusting after the Titanium PowerBook and the 733 MHz SuperDrive G4.
