Today's court technology applications depend on a complex combination of influences that could be bottom lined as budgetary, cultural and political -- both within and outside the courts. Due to the rapidly evolving needs of 21st-century communities and the budgetary pressures facing most courts, change is imperative.
Certain trends are converging in terms of digitization, virtualization, and our data-driven world. However, there is also an increased demand on the people who are working in the courts and are responsible for the administration of their judicial systems . While pressures to reduce costs and deliver results faster with fewer resources are expected to continue, technology is expected to expand in its role as an essential tool for providing justice.
As spending cuts continue to hit court systems, it is estimated that the world of virtualization will be accelerated. As a related byproduct of increasing digitization, is the increased use of full or partial automation for specific court processes. The advent of paperless courts, with its reduction in costs is an essential first step. Some courts are seeking further efficiency by using automating technology to minimize the need for manual input whatsoever.
The challenges facing today’s courts and the technology tools being used are becoming better understood. It is, however, court leaders who must demonstrate the long-term vision of how roles must evolve and how technology will play its part. From the judges who sit on the bench, to the courtroom staff and their law enforcement counterparts, it is the way this workforce meets the changing needs of their communities while balancing budget and regulatory pressures that will determine the courts of the future.
