BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ameritas will receive an Impact Award from the Novarica Insurance Technology Research Council, a peer community of hundreds of insurer CIOs, for its cloud-based API initiative to enable digitalization. More than 50 members of the Council reviewed dozens of case studies to select the winners for the 7th annual awards.
Ameritas built a cloud-based API integration layer to interface with external web and mobile apps, creating a secured, high-performance intermediate tier between internal and external systems. Launched within three months, it enabled the launch of a web application without modifying legacy systems.
"Ameritas is pleased and honored to be recognized by the Council," said Shreejit Nair, director of information technology for Ameritas. "This technology implementation is exciting because it creates a more secure and responsive environment for our web and mobile applications and moves us closer to the API economy."
“The Ameritas case was selected by our Council members as an outstanding example of leveraging new architectural approaches to enable digital services,” said Matthew Josefowicz, President/CEO of Novarica and moderator of the Council.
Ameritas’ case study, along with case studies of seven other winners, and more than 20 additional cases considered for Impact Awards, was published today in Novarica’s 7th Annual Best Practices Case Study Compendium, online at https://novarica.com/compendium2018/. Novarica has published more than 200 case studies through this program since 2012.
