Insurance Company Uses Parallel Programming to Move Rating Engine Off Mainframe

Free registration required

Executive Summary

From 1999 to 2010, Grange Insurance maintained its mission-critical rating engine in two places: a Windows-based Web site for agents, and a mainframe for heavy batch processing. To eliminate duplicate effort, Grange Insurance is consolidating all rating activity onto the Windows Server operating system environment - made possible by using the new parallel-programming aids provided in the Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 development system and the .NET Framework 4 to achieve performance gains of up to 750 percent. Consolidation of all rating activity on Windows Server will reduce the company's annual IT workload by 20,000 hours and decrease cycle times for rate adjustments by two-thirds, from three months to one.
