The Client Profile

The client is one of the largest privately held property and casualty insurance companies in Florida region of United States that provide a high quality and low-cost insurance product to the non-standard automobile insurance market.

Outdated AS400 Applications Struggling to Keep Up with Increasing Market Demand

  • The client was using legacy IBM iSeries (AS/400) system to host their policy and claims management applications and for database storage they were leveraging the secure relational database manager, DB2.
  • As their business was scaling up, both the legacy system-based policy and claims management applications failed to cope up with the additional business requirements, leading to business failing to meet the changing market demands.
  • The client wanted a modern system that would provide flexibility to cope up with the evolving business processes without disrupting the existing legacy IBM iSeries (AS/400) applications. The application also had poor user experience (green screen) and was not accessible to users (agents) across all locations.
  • The new users were also facing challenges to operate the legacy applications smoothly due to limited knowledge around IBMi system user interface (UI). This led to increase in training time for the new users to handle policy administration and claims management processes related activities.
