BREAKING NEW FRONTIERS Following a stupendous success in the banking sector, Hitachi has engineered large-scale innovation in India’s progressive growth sector, insurance. There’s robust demand in insurance, with innovative products and distribution channels aiding growth. There is also a high penetration for technology in insurance, with 90 percent of the people using digital platforms at least once a week. In the last year, amid a raging pandemic, Hitachi has transformed one of the country’s largest public sector insurance providers. The desired outcome: Hitachi offered solutions that will help effect change in the lives of over 250 million people. Transformation is being brought to a legacy of nine-year-old IT infrastructure used for core insurance applications. There are multiple challenges. Keeping the relic infrastructure up and running during business hours has been adding to costs. The requirement was for a consolidated and upgraded system that functions on the latest available platform, which is agile, scalable, reliable, and suffices the insurance provider’s growing demand for the next seven years. The consolidation of 100+ branch servers to just four, with two Disaster Recovery Centres to be used by 2000+ branches is currently underway. Hitachi will be able to enhance the application performance by 20-25 percent and consumers can pay their premiums seamlessly without facing an application downtime or data being lost. The design provides high level of performance, utilization, availability of systems and simplicity over the traditional datacentre architecture and data availability. Hitachi has already implemented the latest technology which results in the reduction of infrastructure requirement by 65 percent. There are numerous additional benefits like a 24x7 Central Command Centre which can help customers attain 24 percent faster identification of system issues, reduces 80 percent of the time to compile key operational reports, and more. Hitachi supports enhancing the business continuity and compliance of ISO standards that is required to build new Disaster Recovery Centres at different seismic zones and various agricultural institutions. Here too, Hitachi has provided a comprehensive suite of solutions that redefines all their functioning. In the banking sector, Hitachi has helped effect transformation in yet another large financial institution with three divisions Domestic, Foreign and Regional Rural Branches with a disparate network of 50,000+ endpoints and 1200 servers. With a large attack surface to cyber exposure, the proposed solutions give full visibility to the sophisticated threats and enable precise and faster responses. Hitachi will continue to support the deployed solutions for the next five years. WHAT NEXT?
