Core Insurance Application Re-platforming

QBE, one of the world’s leading insurers was embarking on significant change programme to re-platform core insurance applications within their European subsidiary. On their behalf, DMW managed the migration, remediation, and re-platforming of core insurance applications onto current state infrastructure covering multiple technology stacks.

This involved the definition and management of a dedicated re-platforming service to provide a centralised control function, ensuring that hardware and software remain within vendor support through a repeatable and predictable delivery mechanism. The programme benefits included:

  • Significant decrease in batch job execution times, which provided an opportunity to increase testing and business processing windows.
  • Performance benefits in terms of consistency and response time for end users.
  • Reduction in technical debt by upgrading underlying operating systems and migrating to strategic / supported infrastructure platforms.
