Desktop-Based Application


This means Aderant typically runs as desktop software within the firm's office on employee PCs, however, some firms may use an IT provider that hosts Aderant on a remote server in a remote datacenter. In this scenario, firm members may RDP, TeamViewer, RemoteApp, or Screen Connect to a remote PC where they access Aderant. In this scenario, some people may say that Aderant runs 'in the cloud', however, it is really just a desktop application running on someone else's equipment.
