Basler Insurance Settles on SAS's Data Management Solutions for Centralized and More Flexible Data Base

December 03, 2012

With the Internet shrinking the world into a single highly connected online village, the amount of data international companies have had to handle is increasing exponentially. For companies dealing with sensitive data like Basler Insurance, it is of the utmost importance to look for a trustworthy partner who will manage their critical data without compromising on its integrity.

To cheaply obey this operational demand, Basler Insurance has brought together it two associate companies, German Ring Life Insurance and German Ring Property-Casualty Group, onto one business intelligence platform serviced by a single data center services by SAS’s (News - Alert) data management solutions.

SAS, a creator of business analytics software and services, will offer Basler Insurance a taste of its innovative solutions targeting site performance and better service value. By leveraging the SAS 9.3 platform, Basler Insurance will get the best of SAS’s data management innovations and services.

SAS Enterprise Guide, for instance, comes in handy during data analysis. With its easy-to-use point and click menu interface, users need just minutes to familiarize themselves with the template and create professional-style reports.

Frank Schumann, head of project migration at Basler Insurance, is confident that SAS will rise to the occasion and deliver the quality his company desires. The choice, made after detailed deliberations, led to the migration of the German Ring Data from IBM (News - Alert) to SAS platform in a bid to attain an all-under-one-roof view of all corporate data.

The most remarkable feature about the move is the fact that the two companies intend to make the move by 2013 without interrupting normal functioning in any way.

This is crucial for the insurance and pension solution provider, since its individual, small and medium-sized enterprise and industrial company customer base cannot accommodate a blackout on services during the migration period.

By adding itself to the list of three thousand internal and external SAS solution and portals users, Basler Insurance is assured of easier and more secure ways of dealing with client data. This will streamline the processing of claims and registration of new insurance policies, leading to a growing and satisfied client base.
