Healthcare.gov isn’t the only option to enroll and acquire health care subsidies through the Affordable Care Act

BeneFinder.com teamed up with fellow Richmond firm Evenspring to release an all new insurance comparison and enrollment platform, just four months after BeneFinder sold the first Coventry insurance plan in the state of Virginia. This completely new and improved website is built around a proprietary algorithm to direct clients to the best health plan option.

BeneFinder’s analytics modules, which were developed by Evenspring, can estimate consumers’ out of pocket spending costs for each plan offered in their area and help consumers save up to 80% on health insurance annually. Because BeneFinder is a federally designated WBE (Web Broker Entity), clients can also use the platform to determine and collect eligible federal subsidies to help reduce costs further, all for free, as the cost to use a broker is paid for by insurance companies, not consumers.

Since the original site launched in November 2013, BeneFinder has been collecting user feedback. "We knew that getting to market quickly, and then iterating based on reception, would be crucial to platform success," said David Blanchard, President of BeneFinder. "Evenspring worked with us to take our initial product to the next level."

This second iteration of the site represents a significant improvement over the first, with run time performance accelerated by 75%, major enhancements to usability, and a brand new back-end to facilitate BeneFinder's growth over the year to come.

"We've completely overhauled the architecture of the BeneFinder platform," says Allen Hatzimanolis, Partner at Evenspring. "This newest version was designed with expansion in mind as David and the team at BeneFinder look to extend their reach beyond the Virginia market and to provide a launch-point for bringing this sophisticated analytics suite to consumers across the nation."

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...
"We help to transform an organization and their operations and make them more efficient, more agile, and more nimble to move into the cloud or to move between cloud providers and create an agnostic tool set," noted Jeremy Steinert, DevOps Services Practice Lead at WSM International, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @DevOpsSummit, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are ra...
