London, UK: Atlanta Technology, the IT solutions specialist, and its client Sacker & Partners are celebrating after the specialist award winning pension law firm won the ‘Best Use of Technology’ category at the British Legal Awards event at Old Billingsgate, London, last Thursday. The award was presented to Sackers for its focus on disaster recovery planning, with the implementation of Atlanta’s ‘Back in 60 Minutes’ DR Service.

The awards, which are considered to be one of the highlights in the legal industry’s calendar and are run in conjunction with Legal Week magazine, are designed to celebrate achievement, excellence and innovation in the legal industry. The shortlist was chosen by an independent panel of judges made up of senior in-house lawyers, former managing and senior partners and other senior business figures.

For the ‘Best Use of Technology’ category, the judges analysed how technology has played a critical role in the improvement of the performance of a firm, department or chambers. The winning entry focused on the implementation of a number of innovations at Sackers, including virtualisation of the servers and storage virtualisation in addition to the radical revamp of its Disaster Recovery solution. This has resulted in a more resilient backup infrastructure to help safeguard the business from a significant loss of billable hours should a major outage occur.

Commenting on the award win, Danny O’Connor, head of IT at Sackers said; “To reach the finals and subsequently win the British Legal Awards for the ‘Best Use of Technology’ is extremely rewarding and a testament to the work we have done in partnership with Atlanta to create an infrastructure that suits our needs, both today and in the future. I am confident that if a major incident were to occur, the network we have deployed has the capability to recover systems to operational capability very quickly, preventing time, data and financial losses. We are very happy to have received the award – it’s certainly a great way to round off 2011.”

Added Simon Kelson, managing director at Atlanta Technology; “We are so pleased for Sackers to be recognised by the British Legal Awards. We have worked with the team for a number of years to help them realise their IT vision by designing their infrastructure to suit the growing demands of the business, offering resilience, scalability and flexibility. The fact this has been recognised by the esteemed judges of the British Legal Awards is extremely satisfying for us all and we are very proud to have helped Sackers achieve this award.”
