Foxwordy, the First Private Social Network for Lawyers, Makes Official Debut

New Social Network Offers Customized Tools and Services Designed for In-House Counsel, Solo Practitioners and Lawyers at BigLaw and Small Firms

PALO ALTO, Calif., Feb 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Foxwordy, the world's first private social network for lawyers, made its official debut today. By instantly connecting credible legal colleagues, Foxwordy allows lawyers to collaborate in a private setting, enhance professional reputations and access new opportunities.

"Foxwordy re-invents the social media experience from the perspective of today's legal professionals," said Monica Zent, Founder & CEO of Foxwordy.  "It's clear many lawyers are becoming increasingly comfortable using traditional social media outlets like Facebook and LinkedIn for personal usage but have been less likely to fully embrace these mainstream outlets for serious legal business.  Foxwordy is offering the best of the social media experience with a suite of tools and services built especially for lawyers who require the highest-level of privacy, especially when it comes to sharing documents, advice and networking."

Benefits of Foxwordy's cloud-based platform include:

Enhanced, Private Collaboration: Foxwordy's invitation-only model brings together relevant top-tier colleagues across the legal market to effectively collaborate in real-time and allows them to share mission-critical knowledge on a private social-networking platform.

Reputation Enhancement: On Foxwordy, lawyers grow their reputations based on the nature of their interactions with their peers.  This puts lawyers in control of their own reputation and gives them a fresh alternative to the often-arbitrary five-star ratings on a multitude of consumer sites.

New Opportunities: Through Foxwordy, legal professionals can expand their relevant network by building relationships with fellow lawyers that lead to a variety of new business and career opportunities.

"Foxwordy is the social collaboration platform designed to reinvent the way legal professionals do business, from delivering the highest level of efficiency to yielding powerful results for their clients," said Marci Rubin, Executive Director of the California Minority Counsel Program, a Member of Foxwordy. "Foxwordy is already solving age-old workflow issues and transforming how we collaborate with our industry colleagues."

Foxwordy was developed by Zent based on her experience as the Founder of ZentLaw, a leading alternative law firm based in Silicon Valley, serving law departments of the Fortune 100 - and the hottest startups. ZentLaw is recognized as a ground-breaking "hybrid" law firm focused on delivering the highest quality at the lowest cost through an all employee model that creates a lean, efficient and highly collaborative business unlike any other law firm.

"As a successful businessperson, lawyer and entrepreneur, Monica Zent intuitively knows the pressing needs of today's challenged legal sector, and Foxwordy is revolutionizing the legal industry's status quo by putting the tools of effective collaboration into every lawyer's hands," said Daniel Quintero, former founding General Counsel of Sony Optiarc and Founding and Managing Partner of Prometheus Partners LLP, a group of accomplished former law firm partners and in-house counsel.

New Foxwordy members receive a 3-month free trial after which they renew membership at introductory pricing.

"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.).

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged.

The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
