PLANO, TX – 2nd April 2019 – NTT DATA Services, a recognised leader in global technology services, today announced the company converted 30 insurance clients and more than four million life insurance policies from the mainframe to Linux through LifeSysTM, the company’s proprietary Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) solution for policy administration.
“Many insurance companies struggle with aging systems and multiple platforms that hinder their ability to adapt to changes and launch new products to remain competitive,” said Scott McConnell, divisional president, insurance, NTT DATA Services. “The migration to Linux will digitally enable carriers to improve speed to market, support on-demand scalability and leverage the cloud to set up new portfolios more quickly.”
The modernised system enables faster setup of new portfolios, lower maintenance, a sandbox environment for product validations and ease of integration with a comprehensive Insurance Digital Platform that provides rich analytics and a seamless customer experience across multiple administration systems.
LifeSys supports life, annuity and group/worksite products and more than four million policies across 30 life insurance companies, many with multiple books of business. Due to the depth and breadth of this system, a phased approach was implemented for the migration in order to minimise client impact and associated risks.
NTT DATA’s LifeSys platform supports day-to-day operations for the company’s life insurance clients, including the full spectrum of life insurance and annuity operations, such as new business services, policy administration, claims and other back-office functions.
