LegalE is a leading legal technology company that specializes in delivering cutting-edge digital solutions to law firms and legal professionals. In its quest to remain at the forefront of technology, LegalE actively sought a dependable partner to revamp its applications, streamline its development processes through DevOps services, and optimize platform performance using advanced cloud technologies.
LegalE faced several challenges in its quest for application modernization and efficient development practices:
- Legacy Systems: LegalE’s existing applications were built on outdated technologies, hindering agility, scalability, and the ability to respond to market demands promptly.
- Manual Processes: Development and deployment processes were manual and time-consuming, leading to duplicates being generated, documents are prone to being misplaced, and the frustration of not being able to locate a crucial document when it is most needed becomes all too familiar.
- Repetitive Tasks: A few tasks such as drafting compelling cause titles for petitions, generating accurate invoices for clients, and staying updated with case progress would often become repetitive and time consuming.
- Security Concerns: There was always a possibility of a physical case file being stolen, duplicated, compromised, or even destroyed. As a legal firm, ensuring data security is of utmost importance. LegalE needed a solution that would enhance security while ensuring compliance with industry standards and regulations.
To address LegalE’s challenges effectively, GoDgtl proposed a comprehensive DevOps solution, leveraging modern tools and cloud services.
One crucial aspect of this solution is Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) with Jenkins. This approach ensures a seamless and efficient workflow, allowing for continuous updates and improvements to LegalE’s software.
To facilitate effective version control, GoDgtl suggested utilizing Git, a reliable and user-friendly tool.
In terms of cloud hosting, Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the preferred choice for LegalE due to its exceptional scalability and reliability. By leveraging AWS, LegalE could effortlessly host their applications and services in the cloud, ensuring optimal performance and accessibility.
AWS also offers a comprehensive suite of security services, including Identity and Access Management (IAM), AWS Web Application Firewall (WAF). These services play a vital role in safeguarding LegalE’s applications and data from potential security threats.
GoDgtl worked closely with LegalE to implement the DevOps solutions seamlessly. The implementation process involved:
- Setting up Jenkins pipelines to automate the entire CI/CD process, including code compilation, testing, and deployment to various environments.
- Migrating LegalE’s applications to AWS, configuring resources for high availability and scalability, and ensuring data security with AWS security services.
- Integrating Git for version control, enabling developers to manage code collaboratively, track changes, and roll back to previous versions if needed.
- Configuring Maven for efficient project build and deployment.
- Training LegalE’s development and operations teams on the new DevOps practices and tools to ensure a smooth transition.
- Continuous monitoring and support for the infrastructure.
The implementation of DevOps solutions by GoDgtl had several positive outcomes for LegalE:
- Increased Efficiency: Automation of development and deployment processes reduced errors and significantly shortened the time to find relevant documents. It also removed duplicates and ensured all the vital documents are safe and quick to find.
- Scalability and Reliability: AWS services allowed LegalE to scale their applications effortlessly to meet growing demand while ensuring high availability.
- Enhanced Security: AWS security services and Macie helped LegalE maintain robust data security practices and meet compliance requirements.
- Cost Optimization: The pay-as-you-go model of AWS helped LegalE optimize costs by only paying for the resources they used.
