Securian Financial Group is one of 100 organizations named to InformationWeek’s annual list of top technology innovators.
For 25 years, InformationWeek identified and honored the nation’s most innovative users of information technology with its InformationWeek 500 rankings and Securian appeared on that list 15 times. This year, InformationWeek shortened the list to an “Elite 100” and Securian was named again.
Middle market project
In addition to completing a detailed application, each company vying for a place on the list also submitted an essay describing an innovative IT project completed within the past year.
Securian’s chief information officer, Senior Vice President Jean Delaney Nelson, submitted an essay about SecurianAccess, an online enrollment site that gives Securian access to the “middle market,” the large segment of middle income Americans who agree they need insurance but haven’t purchased it. 1
“We wanted to meet these potential new customers where they are – online,” said Delaney Nelson. “We knew it would have to compare to their other online shopping experiences. For us that meant creating a transparent purchasing process for simple products with minimal underwriting.”
Delaney Nelson says results quickly materialized in the form of a partnership with a large affinity group that markets Securian products on the SecurianAccess platform under the group’s own brand.
“A team of IT professionals from across the company built one online enrollment website for use by many of our business units to reach the middle market with a variety of products,” said Delaney Nelson.
Since 1880, Securian Financial Group and its affiliates have provided financial security for individuals and businesses in the form of insurance, investments and retirement plans. Now one of the nation’s largest life insurance groups, it is the holding company parent of several companies.
Insurance products are issued by Minnesota Life Insurance Company in all states except New York where products are issued by Securian Life Insurance Company, a New York authorized insurer. Both companies are headquartered in Saint Paul, MN and each insurer is solely responsible for the financial obligations under the policies and contracts it issues. Product availability and features may vary by state.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
