Guidewire PAS Implementation and Data Migration


Guidewire PAS Implementation and Data Migration

The Challenge

ITB is undergoing a platform transformation programme to enhance customer policy and claims experiences by implementing a Guidewire solution.

As a key requirement of the CBP programme, ITB is evaluating the strategy for migrating its policy and claims data from the existing in-house platform to Guidewire.

ITB considered doing the data migration in-house before seeking 3rd party assistance.

    • The cost of implementing the Guidewire system was escalating using a systems integrator.
    • Struggling to get business analysts and configurators.
    • The client didn’t have the skills in data migration.

The Solution

  • TDC was engaged in a partnership to successfully migrate the policy and claims data to Guidewire using the BITSHIFT framework, essentially a SQL-based migration engine.
  • The data volumes migrated from their legacy database to the new system totalled c. 260k (policy and claims data). There was no impact on the existing infrastructure.
  • The project involved 6 people from the technical team: architects, developers and migration analysts.

Key Benefits

  • Reduced costs for resources with correct skills.
  • The removed risk from overrunning on data migration costs by providing a fixed price.
  • Experts in data migration were used to deliver the project.
  • Access to up-to-date, accurate and real-time information
  • Completed data migration from legacy database to new data system: Guidewire
  • Improve client policy and claims experiences
  • Data storage is now in one central repository
