SOUTHLAKE, Texas, Aug. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- NISSAY IT has signed a "Comprehensive Joint Business Agreement" with

Universal Conversion Technologies (USA) to launch 'Data Migration Services' in Japan

Nissay Information Technology Co., Ltd. (NISSAY IT, Head office in Tokyo, President: Kenichi Kobayashi) and Universal Conversion Technologies, L.P. (UCT, head office in Texas, USA, CEO: Dan O'Hara) today announced a comprehensive partnership agreement to deploy data migration services in the Japan market.

Under the framework of the partnership, both companies have signed a comprehensive joint business agreement to incorporate UCT's innovative data conversion tool (DCA) and rich insurance and data migration knowledge and experience in the US market with NISSAY IT's proven insurance expertise and knowledge and large-scale system integration project management skills in the Japanese market.

Japan may currently have the world's second largest volume of ANP (Annualized New business Premium) in the Life & Annuities market after the USA. In the Japanese insurance market, there is a growing need to innovate in competitive business areas and to invest to create new business. At the same time, most Japanese life insurers are being confronted with the various issues and problems related to the increasing maintenance cost of non-competitive business areas such as rigid legacy Policy Administration Systems (PAS)

This "Data Migration Solution" is composed of an innovative data conversion tool, rich expertise, and a proven methodology. It combines the strength of both UCT and NISSAY IT and resolves the issues related to data migration and system reconstruction on mission-critical systems such as PAS - issues that have been considered extremely difficult to resolve in the Japan market. This solution will help Japanese customers reduce the maintenance costs of their non-competitive business areas and allow them to shift more IT budget toward innovating in the competitive business areas.
