Polaris Launches Life Claims in the Cloud at the ACORD LOMA Forum 2014

Polaris Financial Technology Ltd, a leader in products that enable unprecedented operational productivity for the global financial services industry, announced the launch of Life Claims in the Cloud at the recently held annual Association for Cooperative Operations Research and Development (ACORD) LOMA Forum in Orlando, Florida.

According to Matthew Josefowicz, Managing Director at Novarica, “Understanding the value of cloud options and considering how they can be deployed effectively to solve existing business problems should be part of every insurers’ strategic plans.”

Life Claims in the Cloud helps life, annuity and health carriers harness the power of cloud computing to run a claims solution for as low as $10,000/month without any lead time to deploy.

This innovative offering allows claims managers to focus on processing claims quickly and enhancing the customer’s engagement experience instead of spending long cycles on limitations of the claims process and IT provisioning.

Key benefits to insurance carriers include:

  • Better claims outcomes
  • Simplified claims operations
  • Elevated customer experience
  • Regulatory compliance
  • No up-front investment on technology
  • Easy integration with backup and recovery functions

Speaking at the launch, Pranav Pasricha, CEO, Polaris Insurance, said, “As carriers expand their in force policies for disability, critical illness and annuity products, they will experience an increased claim volume and an increased expectation from their customers about their interaction. That coupled with increased regulatory pressures will require carriers to invest in new solutions. Forward looking insurers will add a higher quality customer experience to their list of outcomes. Market leaders view quality customer experience as a means to demonstrate customer centricity and differentiate based on the strength of their brand promise. The challenge for carriers is to maintain profitability while remaining competitive and relevant to the needs of the market. With Life Claims in the Cloud, they can achieve their goal to elevate customer experience with easy and effective claims processing at a fraction of the cost and without having to worry about IT issues.”

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...

The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
