LexisNexis Enterprise Solutions today announced a partnership with Eclipse Computing (Australia) Pty Ltd, a provider of intelligent business solutions to the enterprise and mid-market.

Eclipse’s Data Migration Tool (DMT) is being built into the LexisNexis business management system (code-named Nimbus) developed for the legal sector on the Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 platform.

Eclipse’s DMT will enable the Nimbus implementation team to easily transfer customers’ transactional data from their existing systems into the new Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 solution. The Solicitors Regulation Authority’s accounting rules require legal services providers to report end-to-end on all transactions undertaken by organisations for audit purposes. Accurate migration of data is therefore crucial to the successful implementation of the new Nimbus platform.

“We selected Eclipse for the company’s advanced knowledge of the Microsoft Dynamics AX platform,” said Laura Whitehead, head of marketing at LexisNexis Enterprise Solutions. “It is important that we partner with organisations of the highest calibre and those that have an understanding of both our technology and the markets we serve.”

Recently awarded the 2012 Australian Microsoft Dynamics ERP Partner of the Year and welcomed into the prestigious Microsoft Dynamics Inner Circle, Eclipse has a team of more than 400 people globally supporting 1,200 customer sites. Eclipse is committed to providing the highest level of customer service, development and support across Australasia and North America. Eclipse is part of the publicly listed Australian investment company UXC.

Bradley Stroop, chief executive officer of Eclipse, added: “Both organisations are driven by a customer-orientated approach and commitment to continuous technological improvement. The Nimbus solution from LexisNexis is truly a next-generation business management system, and we are looking forward to working with the company.”

Nimbus powered by Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 from LexisNexis goes beyond traditional practice management software currently available to legal service providers.  It drives operational efficiencies and enables evolution of competitive business models by integrating and harmonising all aspects of a firm’s operations – from client time recording to collections, financial management and human resources – to drive operational efficiencies. The solution also supports the evolution of competitive business models.

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
