Adaptik’s PolicyWriter Easily Supports the Business Volumes of the Largest Global Insurance Companies with Oracle Exadata

Adaptik’s PolicyWriter Achieves Oracle Exadata Optimized Status and Exceeds Prior Benchmark with Oracle Exadata Database Machine

BETHLEHEM, Pa.--()--Adaptik Corporation today announced that PolicyWriter version 7.4.1 has achieved Oracle Exadata Optimized status through Oracle Partner Network, demonstrating that PolicyWriter has been tested and tuned with Oracle Exadata Database Machine and Oracle Linux to deliver speed, scalability and reliability to property and casualty (P&C) carriers. Adaptik Corporation is a Gold level member in Oracle PartnerNetwork.

PolicyWriter, Adaptik’s modern, rules-based policy administration software solution, was built to handle the functional and technical needs of personal, commercial, worker’s compensation and specialty lines of business. Its advanced business functionality enables speed to market and provides capabilities that meet and exceed the expectations of agents, employees and customers.

Oracle Exadata Optimized is part of the Oracle Exastack Optimized program, which allows partners, like Adaptik, to leverage OPN enablement resources and dedicated lab environments to help develop, test and tune their applications on Oracle Exadata Database Machine, Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud and Oracle Super Cluster engineered systems. Oracle Exadata delivers extreme performance and is the ideal database platform for OLTP applications, data warehouses as well as the varied and unpredictable workloads of cloud computing. It is a complete package of servers, storage, networking, and software that is massively scalable, secure and redundant. Oracle Linux brings the latest Linux innovations to market, offering extreme performance, advanced scalability, and reliability for enterprise applications, and enables lower costs.

The following results were achieved during testing of PolicyWriter running on an Oracle Exadata Database Machine:

  • Online Maximum Throughput Test: Oracle Exadata processed more than 20 times OLTP business transactions in 60 minutes as compared to the baseline system.
  • Batch Maximum Throughput Test: Oracle Exadata processed over 26 times the number of batch renewals in 60 minutes as compared to the baseline system.
  • Online Scalability Test: This test was conducted at four levels, the hardware resources being doubled at each successive level. The number of business transactions per hour also doubled going from one level to the next indicating excellent scalability.
  • Batch Scalability Test: This test was conducted at the same four hardware levels as the online scalability test. The increase in the number of renewals per hour going from one level to the next showed the system to be highly scalable.
  • Virtually no performance degradation was observed as the number of policies in the database grew, confirming that PolicyWriter with Oracle Exadata can support the business volumes of the largest global insurance companies.
  • PolicyWriter remained stable with no errors during all the tests.
  • Using the Oracle Exadata Database Machine reduced deployment cost and time with a pre-tuned and pre-optimized technology stack for PolicyWriter; enabling over 50% reduced total cost of ownership over the commodity servers used in the baseline tests.

By achieving Oracle Exadata Optimized status, Oracle recognizes Adaptik Corporation for developing, testing and tuning PolicyWriter on Oracle Exadata Database Machine. Property and casualty (P&C) insurers can be confident when selecting PolicyWriter that it has been tested and tuned to achieve optimal performance, scalability and reliability.

“We are delighted with our Oracle Exadata Optimized test results,” said John Pettit, President and CEO of Adaptik Corporation. “The ability to support higher transaction volumes is essential to our customers. These tests confirm what we have known to be true all along, that any property and casualty insurer can enjoy outstanding performance and scalability while leveraging PolicyWriter’s unprecedented flexibility and functionality for policy administration. PolicyWriter runs best with Oracle Exadata.”

“Oracle Exastack Optimized recognizes partners who have optimized their solutions on a complete, integrated and cloud-ready infrastructure in order to help them accelerate innovation, unlock new features and functionality, and deliver superior value to users,” said Chris Baker, Senior Vice President, Worldwide ISV and OEM Sales, Oracle. “By achieving Oracle Exadata Optimized status, Adaptik has demonstrated that PolicyWriter is tested and tuned to work with Oracle Exadata Database Machine to help deliver optimum performance, scalability, and reliability to their customers.”
