The sizable brief from the Law Society featured three key elements. The first was a series of stakeholder workshops leading to a detailed technical specification. The second element was the development and delivery of the CMS driven, transactional website integrating data from multiple sources to deliver a much more usable platform for both the business and the user. The third, to support and maintain the website once live.
To support the Law Society across multiple service areas including creative, bespoke development, hosting infrastructure and support.
Supporting the Law Society in their transformation programme involves working with several team across the the client organisation. Different team different requirements, different service and support required.
Having set up a new cloud hosting environment on AWS we migrated the society’s main website from the existing host. Once migrated we were to carried out an interim refresh of the brand in advance of a major brand and platform overhaul. The current website is an Ektron CMS build.
We refreshed, restructured and migrated The Law Society's website and intranet.
To ensure the performance required we thoroughly tested a pilot with the live website production code. The successful migration of the sites was carried out with the minimum content freeze period. The interim brand refresh provides a contemporary skin to the full array of existing functionality and was deployed once the site migrations were complete and production code promoted to live.
The brief for the society’s intranet was similar – migrate to a new cloud hosting environment, this time in addition to the brand refresh. We were briefed to restructure the website’s navigation and content database. The intranet is an Umbraco build and the hosting infrastructure Azure.
A bespoke bookshop meeting the specific requirements of the Law Society. and the brand refresh.
This complex project featuring UX, development, infrastructure design and a programme of support benefited from thorough requirements gathering and analysis of dependencies and risk assessment. A detailed definition of scope was developed and resource planned and detailed costings agreed.
The all GDPR requirements were met and the appropriate level of resilience for the hosting of lawsociety.org.uk website bookshop.lawsociaty.org.uk were deployed.
