Exigen Insurance Solutions achieved an industry first with its recent enablement of Exigen Suite on IBM PureApplication Virtual Application Pattern (VAP) with DB2 database server, the first full insurance core systems solution to do so. The VAP deployment culminated a series of engagements with the IBM Innovation Center which earned Exigen the honor of becoming the subject of the Center’s first partner case study.
The IBM PureApplication VAP with DB2 is the highest and strictest virtual pattern for applications to be deployed in the PureApplication stack. We are able to deploy Exigen Suite 5.2 in about 15 minutes onto this stack, and IBM is now registering Exigen Suite into their pattern library (app store).
Exigen benefited significantly from the assistance provided by the IBM Innovation Center to enable Exigen Suite on the Pure Application System on both VAP and Virtual Appliance Factory (VAF), an IBM self-enablement toolkit to help ISVs pre-package application solutions for deployment in cloud and hypervisor environments. This allowed Exigen to pre-package and test Exigen Suite to facilitate rapid deployment and enhanced virtual management of the solution in critical production environments.
The IBM Innovation Center provided technical assistance and consulting in addition to making middleware available to Exigen. Exigen has also enhanced its offering with this collaboration. It is now working with IBM to pilot Worklight (Mobile First) middleware to create a scalable mobile application for all high-volume insurance customer and distribution network transactions, including claims, quote, account inquiry and policy endorsement.
