INDIANAPOLIS, IN -- (Marketwired) -- 06/09/14 -- Exigen Insurance Solutions, a global provider of core systems to insurers, today unveiled its new corporate brand during the opening of the 2014 IASA Educational Conference and Business Show in Indianapolis, Indiana. The rebranding project took several months and resulted in a company name change from Exigen Insurance Solutions to EIS Group, as well as the introduction of a new, more modern logo and tagline -- Powering Insurance Innovation.
"Over the last year, we have grown significantly and evolved as a company," said Alec Miloslavsky, executive chairman and CEO, EIS Group, of the new branding. "We remain dedicated to the insurance industry and we wanted a brand that was a stronger depiction of who we have become as a company. We are committed to delivering systems that integrate superior technical capabilities with rich insurance functionality and offer platform sustainability. This commitment, embodied in the design of our new logo, helps ensure our customers are empowered to innovate for their policy holders now and into the future."
To coincide with the launch of the new corporate brand, EIS Group is also introducing the framework for the company's development philosophy -- Evergreen Engineering(SM). EIS Evergreen Engineering is a methodology and set of underlying principles which ensures the development of insurance core systems that can be installed today and which will remain current and relevant to the needs of the insurance market for the long term. This enables insurers to innovate in business model, product, channel and customer preferences while maintaining continuity with their existing business.
"Evergreen Engineering is based on a set of principles that include designing for a long system lifespan, maintaining a modern technology roadmap tied to enhancing general business capabilities, leveraging the power of the package in delivery and constantly working to reduce upgrade friction to ensure customers can readily take upgrades," said Chuck Johnston, chief marketing officer for EIS Group. "Following this approach ensures our customers can handle multiple business lines and multiple channels on the same system, easily run a million policies in the same image, share integrated customer data across lines of business, deploy on-premise or in the cloud, and meet the needs of the global market."
In the last year, EIS Group launched a product offering for the group and voluntary benefits market and doubled in size through the addition of new software development and services resources. The company also increased presence in Japan, Asia-Pacific and Latin America, opened an office in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and added development centers in China and Eastern Europe. EIS Group now provides insurers in six countries with the EIS Suite of solutions for policy administration, billing, claims and customer management.
EIS Group is exhibiting at the 2014 IASA Annual Conference, and has several company representatives attending. For additional information on solutions from EIS Group, stop by booth #1212 at the show, or visit the company website at www.eisgroup.com.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...
