Thomson Reuters Oracle Customer Showcase, April 15-16, Eagan, MN

Don’t miss this opportunity to spend a day hearing about how Thomson Reuters uses Oracle technology to transform their business.

The Thomson Reuters Oracle Customer Showcase is an interactive event that will be held April 15-16 at Thomson Reuter’s office in Eagan, Minnesota. The showcase features a variety of presentations from Thomson Reuters, Oracle Executives and line of business experts, including how Oracle Coherence and Oracle Database powered Thomson Reuter’s WestLaw project (described in more detail below). There will be tours of the Thomson Reuters data center, a hands-on solution pavilion, breakout sessions and networking opportunities. And to top it all off, attendees will be treated to a Minnesota Twins Baseball game.

Thomson Reuters Westlaw Improves Scalability and Performance with Oracle Coherence

Thomson Reuters Westlaw is one of the primary online legal research services for lawyer and legal professionals, providing proprietary data services and information from more than 30,000 databases of case law, statutes, synopses, treatises, best practices, news articles and public records.

A million times a day, Thomson Reuters Westlaw provides lawyers with the answers they need about historical law and the latest cases from a day, week or month ago so they can address their clients’ legal issues quickly and accurately.

With the nature of search changing almost daily, Thomson Reuters Westlaw decided to optimize their infrastructure around Web 2.0 to deliver cutting edge performance and capabilities. Their first challenge was to create an advanced search algorithm that would identify relevant documents using term matching, legal concepts, document characteristics and search patterns, so lawyers could do research faster with confidence they were not missing anything.

Next, the team created a sleeker interface and other features to improve workflow and help customer keep better track of the information they found.

Then, they had to find enabling software and hardware that would scale quickly, be available 24/7 and that was flexible enough to evolve and scale to meet constantly changing client needs. After meeting with many vendors and evaluating their offerings, Thomson Reuters Westlaw selected Oracle technology.

Oracle Coherence and Oracle Streams addressed Westlaw’s data consistency needs enabling them to maintain high availability despite being more computationally demanding than previous versions of the application. This was made possible because Oracle Coherence and Oracle Streams share the cache across all nodes so, if a particular node fails, another node picks up where the other left off. Oracle Coherence and Oracle Streams also provide data consistency across functions i.e. a lawyer wants to search terms highlighted on both onscreen and printed results.

Oracle Coherence also addressed Westlaw’s need to scale to an unprecedented degree immediately. Coherence provided the ideal solution for scalable data management. Scaling both capacity and throughput was easily achieved by adding more nodes to the Coherence cluster.

Find out more about how the improved performance, scalability and availability Oracle Coherence provides helps Thomson Reuters Westlaw better serve their clients and create unique competitive advantage.
