MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (Marketwired) -- 07/17/13 -- Can a modern policy administration system handle a database with tens of millions of individual policies and thousands of group policies?
A new whitepaper from MphasiS Wyde answers key questions about scalability by detailing the results of an exacting benchmark test.
MphasiS Wyde's PAS, Wynsure, was tested on a database of 40 million individual policies and 17,000 group policies. Policies included group supplemental insurance plans and individual life, health and disability worksite policies configured according to a major insurance company's specifications.
The test covered backend transactions typically processed by end-users, such as issuance, endorsements and renewals, with a load of 400 concurrent users. It also simulated straight-through processing for group and individual enrollments.
CSS Corp., an independent testing organization, oversaw testing and load and automation scripting, and provided analysis and reporting.
MphasiS Wyde first created an enormous simulated policyholder database that truly represented the insurer's book of business so that simulated users could process typical transactions.
The whitepaper details steps taken to tune the hardware and software for top performance.
Wynsure passed: some 74% of transactions in the final benchmark had a response time under 750 milliseconds and 85% had response time within 1 second. Only 1% of user transactions took 1.5 seconds or more.
The test also successfully simulated STP for group and individual enrollments. Average response time for an individual subscription was 744 ms. With group enrolment, it averaged 870 ms.
Some 32,934 transactions ran without a single failure.
"Benchmarking gave the MphasiS Wyde team valuable information on how to make Wynsure run fast and nimbly with a huge policyholder database of both individual and group policies," said MphasiS Wyde technical director Christopher Goetze.

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

DevOps and Containers together help companies to achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of...

The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology. For the first time, more data is being created by devices at the edge of the Internet rather than from centralized systems. What does this mean for today's IT professional? In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed this very serious issue of pro...

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time. With service providers positioning vastly differing offerings under a generic “cloud” umbrella, it’s all too easy to get confused about what’s actually being offered. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Kevin Hazard, Director of Digital Content for SoftL...
