Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) March 21, 2011
IntApp, Inc. (http://www.intapp.com), the leading provider of application integration software for law firms, today announced that Ogier, a leading global offshore law firm providing a full range of legal, fiduciary and administrative services, has selected IntApp Integration Builder to synchronise and centrally manage information across the firm’s diverse application portfolio. Ogier will use Integration Builder as the backbone of its master data management initiative. The group has a presence in nine jurisdictions around the world, namely Bahrain, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Hong Kong, Ireland, Jersey, London and Tokyo. Ogier provides advice on all aspects of BVI, Cayman, Guernsey and Jersey law and fiduciary services
"In 2010, we completed a strategic review of our IT application portfolio and identified a critical need to introduce a standardised infrastructure for applications integration," said Neil Clark, Group IT Director, Ogier. "We assessed two candidates, IntApp Integration Builder and Microsoft BizTalk, comparing the two products on several criteria. IntApp’s wide adoption by peer law firms, lower cost of ownership and significant ease-of-use advantages made it the clear winner."
Ogier will leverage Integration Builder to create an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) that will facilitate the integration of existing applications by creating a standardised infrastructure for the exchange of data between applications, to simplify the application map and to provide an automated monitoring system.
Integration Builder provides a simple, straightforward way for law firms to connect, manage and automate their business applications and processes. Provided as a pure-software application deployed in a virtualised environment, Integration Builder delivers real-time data communication without the cost, complexity and time required by custom code development. Included with the product are pre-built solution templates which enable law firms to rapidly build and deploy solutions to address common process challenges including new business intake, new user provisioning and distribution list management. IntApp also delivers best practices advice as well as access to an energetic, collaborative user community of IT professionals.
“IntApp Integration Builder gives us a simple, straightforward way to synchronise and exchange information across our diverse application portfolio, which includes common law firm systems such as Elite Enterprise, Autonomy iManage, InterAction and Metastorm BPM, as well as less common tools like Microsoft Navision,” said James Prouten, Development Manager, Ogier. "And because Integration Builder natively connects to all standard systems and protocols, we can create and manage a central store of master data shared among these applications through a single interface, greatly enhancing our ability to streamline key firm business processes.”
"We are excited be working with Ogier and to assist the firm in meeting their strategic integration needs with Integration Builder," said Kaye Sycamore, UK Managing Director, IntApp. "As an IntApp client, Ogier will benefit from our extensive experience helping law firms manage the exchange of data across a wide variety of software applications."
