The cloud has changed the way IT is conducted, but it also has changed how we do business. The metaphor of the cloud can be applied to human resources, too. If a business takes on work but doesn’t have the internal resources to handle it, then it can tap a pool of independent contractors just like software developers tap the cloud.

This is true for legal departments, too. The resources in a legal department may not match what a company has. The legal department may lack internal expertise for a project. It may have a dearth of the necessary resources for the matter that the legal department is being presented with, whether it’s litigation, an influx of new cases or a new acquisition.
