Most of what we need to do to introduce a new product is now easily accomplished ... It is vastly more efficient than it was before.

Business Challenge Story

The Professional Provident Society (PPS), a leading South African provider of specialized insurance services for professionals, wanted to improve its ability to bring new products to market in order to respond to changing customer demands and stiffening competition.


Working in close collaboration with IBM Business Partner Silvermoon Group, PPS replaced all of its legacy systems with a completely new, modular application infrastructure based on the principles of the IBM Insurance Application Architecture (IAA)—the first end-to-end implementation of IAA in the South African market. The common IAA-based plat- form unified several previously disparate policy systems.
