The Passport Ecosystem

The Passport ecosystem includes:

Passport Applications

Datacert Applications:

All of these applications share the Passport platform as their foundation, which means they can be used individually, or seamlessly combined to deliver a unified solution for the management of legal, risk, and compliance activities across the enterprise.

Client-Built and Partner-Developed Passport Applications:

Passport Toolkits provide Datacert clients or third-party application developers with the ability to build new applications or modules that leverage the power of Passport and work seamlessly with Datacert applications. 


Passport Technology 

Core Components:

Passport includes core components, such as a database, workflow and rules engines, security, search, and more.  These common and reusable components are leveraged by all applications built on the Passport platform. This ensures that applications share data and work together seamlessly to maximize visibility and streamline processes across the enterprise.


Passport Toolkits provide powerful capabilities to administer, configure, and extend Passport solutions. Using the toolkits, Datacert clients and partners have the ability to tailor Passport to meet precise client requirements or to build new solutions to support emerging business needs.

Data Warehouse:

The Passport Data Warehouse works together with the platform to deliver reporting and business intelligence that consolidate data from across systems and departments for maximum visibility into matters, risk, compliance, and cost.

Collaboration Portal:

The Passport Collaboration Portal enables organizations to securely and efficiently collaborate with outside counsel and other external service providers.

Integrated Applications

The platform’s open integration capabilities enable Passport to deeply integrate with a client’s technology assets that are already in place, which ensures a seamless flow of data and processes between Passport and these systems.  Datacert also collaborates with its global network of Technology Partners to develop integration connectors between Passport and other enterprise software products. This ensures that each Passport implementation delivers the precise combination of best-in-class technologies to meet client needs and maximize value.
