DocuSign Encourages Legal Professionals To Go Digital in Recognition of National ESIGN Day
|By Business Wire
|June 30, 2014 06:05 AM EDT
Inc. (DocuSign®) in recognition of National
ESIGN Day announced it will offer members of the legal profession an
educational webinar on July 16, 2014 about the legal framework for
electronic signature in the United States, including updates on
“DocuSign’s Digital Transaction Management platform and eSignature
solution offer lawyers and their executive counterparts an easier,
faster, more convenient and secure way to transact business,” said Ken
Moyle, chief legal officer and vice president of legal and corporate
affairs, DocuSign, and chairman of the Public Policy Committee, Electronic
Signatures and Records Association (ESRA). “DocuSign is proud to be
a catalyst that’s helping organizations of every size, industry and
geography achieve their digital transformations. ESIGN is virtually an
all-encompassing law that lawyers can use to champion the move to all
digital transactions in their business for dramatic ROI, increased
security and compliance, and a better client experience.”
National ESIGN Day was spearheaded by DocuSign who formed a coalition to
have it passed by both houses of the U.S. Congress. ESIGN Day was
officially designated by Congress on June 30, 2010, following President
Clinton signing into law the Electronic Signatures in Global and
National Commerce (ESIGN) Act on June 30, 2000. The federal ESIGN Act
created a vast opportunity for companies of every size and industry to
benefit from the speed, security and convenience of eSignatures for the
past 14 years.
One industry that is benefiting today is corporate restructuring. Robert
Klamser, co-founder of UpShot
Services LLC, a company that specializes in acting as an agent of
the Court in Chapter 11 Bankruptcy proceedings, says, “eSignature
naturally resonated with my partner, a former bankruptcy lawyer. In a
paper-laden practice within the legal industry, we knew it was vital to
digitize the Chapter 11 space by partnering with DocuSign, the global
standard for Digital Transaction Management. Our business model is now
tailored to the new digital future of claims management – making us more
efficient and better able to service our stakeholders.”
DocuSign allows its customers to meet all the requirements of the ESIGN
Act to give customers assurance that DocuSigned documents are safe,
secure and legally enforceable – even more so than if they were signed
the “old fashioned way” with paper and pen as all DocuSigned documents
come complete with an audit trail that is admissible as evidence. The
ESIGN Act covers contract types of all kinds including arbitration, life
and auto insurance and securities.
The one-hour educational webinar
titled, “The Legality of eSignature: Take Your Company Digital with
DocuSign”, will be offered on July 16 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. Eastern
Time. Topics to be covered include:
The Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA) of 1999
The Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN)
General Rule of Validity
What is an Electronic Signature?
Relevant Case Law
Regulatory Developments including Mobile
Devices and Mobile Privacy

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, will explore HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.

Containers are all the rage among developers and web companies, but they also represent two very substantial benefits to larger organizations. First, they have the potential to dramatically accelerate the application lifecycle from software builds and testing to deployment and upgrades. Second they represent the first truly hybrid-approach to consuming infrastructure, allowing organizations to run the same workloads on any cloud, virtual machine or physical server. Together, they represent a ver...

There will be 20 billion IoT devices connected to the Internet soon. What if we could control these devices with our voice, mind, or gestures? What if we could teach these devices how to talk to each other? What if these devices could learn how to interact with us (and each other) to make our lives better? What if Jarvis was real? How can I gain these super powers?

The enterprise is being consumerized, and the consumer is being enterprised. Moore's Law does not matter anymore, the future belongs to business virtualization powered by invisible service architecture, powered by hyperscale and hyperconvergence, and facilitated by vertical streaming and horizontal scaling and consolidation.

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/...
