When Aviva plc, a multinational insurance provider group, acquired Friends Provident International (FPI), it needed to replace FPI’s costly proprietary imaging and bond management workflow system. With help from Red Hat® Consulting, Aviva Asia Pte. Ltd. created and launched a new application based on Red Hat JBoss® Middleware within a tight six-month time frame. With this new solution, Aviva has reduced costs by replacing proprietary licensing fees with Red Hat’s flexible, cost-effective subscription pricing model. In addition, hosting the new application locally on-premise has improved response times for end users, helping Aviva bring new services to market faster.
