Today IBM announced its new family of expert integrated systems, IBM PureSystems. We’re very pleased to be among a select list of IBM’s business partners certified on PureSystems. PureSystems is a new class of systems that combines the flexibility of general purpose systems, the elasticity of cloud and the simplicity of an appliance with integrated expertise to change the experience and economics of IT.
“IBM is excited to work with Exigen Insurance Solutions, a leader in insurance technology,” said Michael Riegel, vice president of global ISVs, IBM. “Insurers are demanding optimized solutions and the combination of Exigen’s solutions and the new IBM PureSystems will help them reduce complexity and drive innovation.”
Gwen Spertell, president of Exigen Insurance Solutions, commented: “Our clients are looking to capitalize on the enormous benefits of cloud computing, open technology and flexible software to support business transformation initiatives. With the combination of Exigen core processing and management solutions and PureSystems, they now have an integrated application and infrastructure solution that not only delivers business efficiency but also supports profitable growth. Insurers can focus on the quality of the business feeding the top line while closely managing underlying expense without compromising service.”
IBM describes expert integrated systems as building blocks of capability that represent the collective knowledge of thousands of deployments, established best practices, innovative thinking, IT leadership and distilled expertise.
PureSystems includes PureApplication, which is an application platform designed to fully integrate with the system infrastructure and deploy a range of applications, such as the Exigen Suite, and PureFlex, which is an integrated computing system that combines servers, enterprise storage, networking, virtualization and management into a single expert integrated system.
