Should Small Law Firms Use Data Warehouses?

Is your firm wrestling with how to best manage your data? Managing data proficiently is challenging for law firms at any stage in their growth, and with the sensitive nature of most of the information law firms need to access, store, and process, there’s no doubt that security and keeping up with competitors weighs heavy on your minds.

At backdocket, we understand your data management concerns. You need a reliable storage space for the data required to do what you do. That’s why we offer firms an onsite data warehouse.

What is A Data Warehouse and Why Do I Need One?

Maybe you’ve heard of about data warehouses, but you’re not exactly sure what it is or if your firm needs one. Put simply, a data warehouse is a permanent space to keep the data needed to support everything necessary to run a successful law firm like:

  • Reporting
  • Analysis
  • Dashboards
  • And other business intelligence functions

You may be deciding as you read this what data management system to adopt, so we hope we can shed light on what a data warehouse can do for a smaller firm.

Backdocket’s Onsite Data Warehouse

Data warehouses live on servers like SQL Servers that function to run database management systems. You may be a total tech head and are getting excited reading about data storage, or you are like many and you’re thinking “SQ…what?” If this is the case, you’re not alone, so we’ll go with the simple “why you might need it” version here:

  • With backdocket’s onsite data warehouse, you can sync your web data to your own local SQL Server in near real time.
  • This feature lets you create any report extended with any external data you collect. If you’re using third-party data for lead generation, this is a helpful feature.
  • Access to the data warehouse through backdocket improves the functionality of your dashboard as it pulls in all the relevant and validated information you need to make key decisions to keep ahead of your competition.
