As a State of Colorado agency, the Colorado Office of the Child’s Representative (OCR) serves to provide children in Colorado with effective legal representation and advocacy on behalf of Colorado’s Court System. The OCR represents Colorado’s most vulnerable children by establishing standards and litigation support, accessible high-quality statewide training, and oversight of the legal process. The State of Colorado and OCR are tasked with supporting each other’s mission and provide cross-functional legal representation between private attorneys and the state.
The Colorado Office of Child’s Representation was having trouble with their outdated cloud data storage application to bill their attorneys with the Colorado Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) and case managers. Their decentralized infrastructure created complexity with systems integration and communication, billable hours, and case management between (CASA) in each Judicial District. OCR was looking for a new cloud-based application to enhance communication and collaboration across private attorneys and the state agency that would also provide cost savings and long term ROI.
Tempus Nova Solution
Tempus Nova developed a case management and billing system for the Colorado Office of the Child’s Representative (OCR) for attorneys and case managers to input data on cases, as well as billing and invoice data into our web-based application. The application then backups and stores the application data, as well as their database backups into Cloud Storage. OCR released an RFP and required a custom web-based app to enter case information, detail billing activities, review invoices, and generate custom and ad-hoc reports. Tempus Nova’s solution included the following GCP components: App Engine; Cloud SQL; Cloud Storage; AngularJS & Google’s Material Design. We successfully deployed their case management billing system within a 12-week project timeline.
The Colorado Office of the Child’s Representative (OCR) deployed GCP statewide in April 2018. Colorado executed a statewide initiative to leverage App Engine (Platform as a Service and cloud computing through Google Cloud Platform), Cloud SQL (SQL database hosted in the Google Cloud Platform), and Cloud Storage (unified object storage provided by Google Cloud Platform).
To date, Tempus Nova continues to support CO OCR with its Google Cloud environment (test and production domains, etc.), cloud initiatives and requirements, and with GCP application development services. The result of these Google platform initiatives has enabled the State of Colorado and many other public and private sector organizations to achieve a rolling return on investment. This provided a path to cost avoidance by eliminating the higher costs of non-Google solutions that performed similar functions.
