Why move from a mainframe to a web-based solution?
Nowadays, system usability and flexibility are key factors when assessing the strengths, longevity, and long-term success of legislative software. Lawyers need technology that works with them – making processes easier and faster, not more complicated and cumbersome.
But, traditional technological infrastructure that legislatures were first built on focused less on users’ needs, making them less agile over time. As such, the aging software is becoming obsolete or unusable, making the need to move from a mainframe legacy system to a web-based solution paramount.
To replace aging infrastructure and better meet users’ needs, North Dakota’s Legislative Council worked with Propylon® to implement an XML-based integrated framework of applications to replace the legislature’s legacy mainframe core business processes – including bill drafting, bill amendments, resolutions, session management, daily calendars and journals, bill status reports, session laws, and other legislative publications.
As a result, it has increased efficiency, enhanced service levels, and improved functionality.
