Property and Casualty (P&C) insurers today are facing changing business environment, new competitors, dismantling of trade barriers, stringent regulatory requirements, and customers' increasing demands. One of the biggest challenges facing the P&C insurers is how to optimize their legacy systems to meet these business challenges. Legacy IT systems are often rigid and don't provide the flexibility to adapt to the ever increasing market driven changes. These legacy systems don't automate routine processes, are difficult to modify, and expensive to maintain.
