Pennsylvania’s State-of-the-Art Court System Built with Sybase Database Products and Professional Services

Sybase ASE, Replication Server and PowerDesigner Help Reduce Risk and Increase Quality for 8100 IT Users of the Pennsylvania Judiciary

DUBLIN, CA  — JULY 23, 2007 — Sybase, Inc. (NYSE: SY), a leading provider of enterprise infrastructure and mobile software, today announced the successful completion of the Criminal Common Pleas Case Management System (CPCMS) developed by the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts (AOPC) using Sybase Professional Services (SPS). The CPCMS is a comprehensive, statewide system that integrated more than 100 different court systems within 67 counties into one case management system, thus providing a single, uniform approach to criminal case processing. The AOPC solution combines Sybase® Adaptive Server® Enterprise (ASE), Sybase Replication Server® and Sybase PowerDesigner® to enable the improvement of data management infrastructure and provide additional flexibility to developers and IT operations staff.
Sybase Professional Services and Sybase products, along with several other partners, were selected through a competitive bid process to provide critical assistance to the Pennsylvania court system that included transferring information pertaining to more than 5.6 million existing court cases, a monumental task that spanned a five-year period. The work that Sybase Professional Services did on the project helped the AOPC ensure that the resulting solution was accessible and accurate in a secure environment throughout the enterprise.
“Judicial automation at a statewide level improves the overall efficiency of the state’s criminal justice system and the management of the courts, while aiding law enforcement through the timely sharing of large amounts of critical criminal information,” said Zygmont A. Pines, Court Administrator of Pennsylvania.
"Sybase is honored to be a key contributor to this successful five year implementation," said Steve Capelli, president, Worldwide Field Operations of Sybase, Inc., "This Administration of Pennsylvania Courts system demonstrates the value of building an Unwired Enterprise - where critical information can be securely managed at the data center to deliver to the point of action - in this case, integrating and managing a substantial amount of court data and delivering it to thousands of users. We're pleased that Sybase's innovative, scalable and reliable solutions along with our services and industry expertise could deliver the job for the AOPC."
For its more than 8,000 users, the system provides docketing, calendaring, accounting, collection, payment and a wide variety of other court functions for judges and their staffs, clerks of court and county court administration staff. AOPC officials estimate that 400,000 cases will be docketed on CPCMS annually.
Sybase Professional Services played a critical role in establishing the architecture, setting up application integration, performing migration and managing key aspects of the project. Sybase collaborated with AOPC to provide a complete technology strategy while developing the application system. The technology included the security model, auditing sub-system, archiving sub-system, performance tracking and monitoring. The team for CPCMS leveraged Sybase expertise in this area and the ISO-9001 compliant frameworks. At the end of the project, Sybase Professional Services efficiently transitioned the maintenance to AOPC.
