SharePoint – the DMS for law firms?

"SharePoint will be the dominant DMS at law firms.   Nothing happens overnight in the legal vertical, but check back in ten years, more or less, and we shall see. "

-Bill Gratsch

My thoughts: I concur, in the mid-term at least, I think the momentum that SAAS (and S+S) is gaining is likely to replace in-house deployments of SharePoint in the longer (8 yr +) term, that said, I defiantly agree that nothing happens overnight within legal so will this actually (and perversely)  bring the "longer term" closer? I.e. if a DMS lives for another 3-5 years will firms look seriously at hosted solutions at that point? In the mid-tier maybe, but I doubt the big boys will...
