Aviva UK utilises Pirean expertise to streamline overall business transformation.
As part of their overall business transformation Aviva UK needed to migrate bespoke legacy applications onto a single standardised platform, in order to reduce the complexity and time to value of rolling out new business applications as well as to streamline the upkeep and maintenance of existing applications.
Aviva's requirement was for Pirean to design and implement a new standards-based IBM-centric virtualisation platform, that enables an easy path to migration of legacy applications and a reduced lead time to deployment of new applications - a dramatic reduction was called for from an average of 6 months down to as few as 7 days.
Pirean's solution incorporates a number of features, including:
- IBM Tivoli Access Manager (TAM)
- IBM Tivoli Identity Manager (TIM)
- IBM Tivoli Application Dependency Discovery Manager (TADDM)
"Our work with Pirean is helping us deliver a new focus on web service that enables us to better interact with our partners and customers in an environment where security and speed to market are absolutely paramount, Pirean have a strong technical understanding of our environment and a proven track record of delivering innovative solutions.
The detailed design work they have carried out so far gives us a clear indication of the benefits of the new system backed by a carefully phased implementation strategy to ensure constant availability of our critical applications during the process."
