Asysco raises awareness for the legacy challenge at DIA BarcelonaJuly 13, 2016
Legacy systems like mainframes, still power the core administrations of many insurance companies. These systems are expensive, inflexible and difficult to integrate with. They negatively impact your ability to innovate and to gain competitive advantage.
Competitive advantage is tightly linked to an organizations’ ability to respond quickly to market changes and customer demands. Innovation is key. Every euro spent on these legacy systems is a euro lost on innovation. The only alternative seems to be to replace the legacy system with a commercial insurance package but that’s not a simple undertaking: implementation takes a lot of time, it usually requires you to adapt your business process and is costly.
Innovation for the finance and insurance industry
Asysco has helped many insurance companies, such as Aegon, Aviva, American Public Life, Cosvi and others to move their core systems to modern technologies in as much as 9 months to 1 year. Once in the new environment, these companies have been able to selectively replace and integrate (parts of) the system in a matter of months allowing much faster innovation with new trends such as mobile, cloud, self-service, business intelligence, data mining and so on.
Legacy is no longer an inhibitor but an asset waiting to be leveraged for business success. Innovation happens much faster than through any other approach and with manageable risk and clear ROI. Imagine all the things you are currently unable to do with the old technologies: real time insight and knowledge, fast and flexible changes, easy and straight through integration with all the solutions presented at DIA Barcelona.
