Owning Change in Education Administration
Our customer, one of the largest public school insurance pool providers in the U.S., is overseen by a large educational institution that provides aggregated healthcare services to multiple school districts. To stay competitive, increase efficiency and reduce costs, they embarked on an application modernization and subsequent cloud migration.
The Challenge: Lessons in Innovation
Enable Efficiency on the Cloud
Our customer wanted to completely modernize their legacy health insurance platform to better support the growing business demand. At the time, they were managing one of the largest public school pools in the U.S., with a combined budget of $2.5B and insuring approximately 500,000 individuals.
When evaluating cloud migration, they needed flexibility to handle the rapidly expanding regulatory environment. They wanted to ensure cloud security and compliance, while automating and enabling B2B integration. They looked for streamlined processes and more data visibility, reporting and analytics.
Their next step? Develop an application modernization strategy on the right technology platform—with the right partner. Enter TEKsystems.
