Asysco helps insurer with mainframe migration
VIVAT improves its foundation for future innovations

Insurer VIVAT successfully completed the migration of a Unisys Libra mainframe to a Microsoft SQL environment.

This migration enables VIVAT to implement future innovations faster and more effectively. In addition, the project generates a cost saving of 70%. During the migration, VIVAT was supported by Asysco.


Innovative technology
Marcel van de Lustgraaf, Managing Director ITC at VIVAT: “VIVAT offers its customers smart and advanced solutions that are simple and effective. In order to continue to offer this in the future, VIVAT is committed to innovate and embrace new technologies. The migration to an SQL environment enables us to continue to excellence both on customer satisfaction as well as on our efficient business operations. ”

Herman Eggink, CCO at Asysco: “VIVAT cherishes a viable and diligent culture and strives to improve customer service every day. In the project, 15 different applications, including 8 business-critical applications, were migrated. Such a profound operation can only be brought to a positive end if mutual communication is optimal. The successful completion of this project is the evidence of that.”

Past warranties are not a guarantee
Van de Lustgraaf: “In the past, we have already proven that VIVAT is strong in performing migrations. Just look at the integration projects of, among others, AXA and Winterthur. However, successes from the past do not offer any guarantees for the future. Such an extensive project like this will always be exciting. But the fact that we have done this together with our partners on time and within budget without compromising quality, personally, makes me very proud. ”

Asysco Technology Conference
The successful migration project at VIVAT is a central topic during the annual Asysco Technology Conference, which will take place on October 10 and 11 in Alkmaar.
