FirstBest Hosts Insurance Webinar: Legacy Replacement Strategies: Embrace or Replace?

Powerful Underwriting Results Achievable Without Requiring Full Legacy Replacement

BEDFORD, Mass., Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- FirstBest® Systems, Inc., provider of insurance software solutions for global insurance carriers, today announced a complimentary webinar for insurers who are contemplating legacy replacement.  Legacy replacement is top of mind for many carriers today as they try to increase agility, better serve agents, improve the underwriting process, and lower total cost of ownership.  And in many cases, it makes sense to replace legacy systems. But it's not always necessary to take the expense, time and risk that a legacy replacement entails.

WHO: Presented by Steve Robins, Senior Director FirstBest Systems.

WHAT: While most insurers eventually need to implement new core systems, many benefit from enhancing the user experience in front of the legacy system by implementing and gaining powerful new capabilities without full replacement. 

The live event will cover how:

  • To determine when legacy replacement makes sense – and when it doesn't
  • To gain powerful new capabilities without full replacement
  • Insurance carriers can make a more immediate impact to the business 
  • To gain rich underwriting and agent-facing capabilities while leveraging legacy systems

WHEN:  Thursday, November 15, 2012, from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. Eastern

Enterprises are striving to become digital businesses for differentiated innovation and customer-centricity. Traditionally, they focused on digitizing processes and paper workflow. To be a disruptor and compete against new players, they need to gain insight into business data and innovate at scale. Cloud and cognitive technologies can help them leverage hidden data in SAP/ERP systems to fuel their businesses to accelerate digital transformation success.
In this presentation, you will learn first hand what works and what doesn't while architecting and deploying OpenStack. Some of the topics will include:- best practices for creating repeatable deployments of OpenStack- multi-site considerations- how to customize OpenStack to integrate with your existing systems and security best practices.
DXWordEXPO New York 2018, colocated with CloudEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City and will bring together Cloud Computing, FinTech and Blockchain, Digital Transformation, Big Data, Internet of Things, DevOps, AI, Machine Learning and WebRTC to one location.
Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value extensible storage infrastructure has in accelerating software development activities, improve code quality, reveal multiple deployment options through automated testing, and support continuous integration efforts. All this will be described using tools common in DevOps organizations.
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the benefits of the cloud without losing performance as containers become the new paradigm.
