Millers Mutual Group Selects Accenture to Enable Streamlined Product Development and Improved Customer Services

Accenture (NYSE:ACN) announced that Millers Mutual Group, a U.S. commercial property and casualty (P&C) insurer, has selected Accenture Duck Creek Policy and Accenture Duck Creek Billing software to streamline operational transactions and create a simplified user experience, enhancing the level of customer service for agents and customers. Accenture will upgrade the insurer’s core policy administration and billing systems as part of Millers Mutual’s continued technology modernization initiative.

Millers Mutual currently uses Accenture Duck Creek Rating and Accenture Duck Creek Templates to create and price products and for its agent internet portal. The implementation and integration of Accenture Duck Creek Policy and Billing will allow the insurer to take advantage of their current infrastructure to increase operational efficiencies and improve customer services.

“Accenture’s software has already provided our agents with the ability to quickly and effectively communicate with both the company and customers, resulting in improved customer satisfaction,” said Larry Fortin, CIO, Millers Mutual Group. “Incorporating Accenture Duck Creek Policy and Billing to our already successful platform is a key part of our long-term strategy of leveraging modern technology for overall process improvement.”

“Millers Mutual is taking a bold step forward with their technology modernization initiative by embarking on this system upgrade,” said Michael A. Jackowski, global managing director of Accenture Software for P&C Insurance. “Replacing an aging legacy rating engine is smart way for insurers to increase operational efficiencies and reduce costs. This is a terrific demonstration of how our software can be used for an incremental legacy replacement strategy that improves overall business results.”

Accenture’s award-winning policy, claims and billing software offers carriers an integrated suite of software with modules that can be implemented individually or as part of a broader migration strategy. The Accenture Duck Creek Suite of software helps insurers of all sizes to benefit from a flexible suite of property & casualty software to configure products, transact lines of business and process claims.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the massive amount of information associated with these devices. Ed presented sought out sessions at CloudEXPO Silicon Valley 2017 and CloudEXPO New York 2017. He is a regular contributor to Cloud Computing Journal.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
