Law firm Gordon, Arata, Montgomery, Barnett, McCollam, Duplantis & Eagan, LLC is up and running on 3E® in the Cloud from Thomson Reuters Elite - powered by Microsoft® Azure®. While the new service offers many benefits – including premium cloud security as well as power and load flexibility – disaster recovery stands above all other benefits for this firm, headquartered in New Orleans.
Gordon Arata felt the pain of disaster recovery after Hurricane Katrina, and the challenges of a business forced to function from a headquarters damaged from the tremendous storm. “Today, we are in full hurricane season, but our firm is confident we can support client needs regardless of weather challenges, because 3E in the Cloud keeps our business data secure and accessible no matter where we need to conduct business,” said Ray LoCicero, firm administrator for Gordon Arata Montgomery Barnett.
3E in the Cloud provides end-to-end business management, leveraging Microsoft Azure security and analytics services, which enable 3E customers to always be tech current through Microsoft’s ongoing security testing and systems upgrades.
The Microsoft Azure platform offers cloud confidence with nearly unlimited scale, 24/7 monitoring, security rigor and innovation opportunities unmatched in the industry. “By leveraging Microsoft Power BI® and Azure platform services, the 3E in the Cloud platform becomes the first of its kind to give law firms both greater efficiencies across all business processes and the ability to stay up to speed with faster deployments of new technology and scale to meet client demands,” explained Eric Sugden, Elite chief technology officer. “As Gordon Arata weathers this year’s hurricane season, their adoption of 3E in the Cloud also ensures their clients will experience seamless business support.”
“Cloud adoption has been rapid as it offers organizations agility to compete and velocity to transform their business through greater efficiencies and productivity,” said Stacy Trackey Meagher, vice president, Microsoft Enterprise. “Our Thomson Reuters relationship supports legal professionals’ needs for secure access to business information. 3E in the Cloud leverages Microsoft Azure to ensure legal professionals have the best solutions for workflow, reporting and analytics, as well as the confidence to protect their organization and their customers’ information.”
