7 Best Practices for Replacing Legacy Systems

Desjardins General Insurance Group and Blue Phoenix suggest following these guidelines to bring legacy replacement projects in both on time and on budget.

In 2006, Canadian P&C insurer Desjardins General Insurance Group (DGIG) began a four-year journey to completely migrate its systems from a multiple-virtual storage/integrated database management system platform to a new Windows/Oracle platform. With help from consultant Blue Phoenix, DGIG successfully migrated to a platform that promoted the convergence of distribution channels and enabled performance and scalability improvement over legacy systems — both on time and on budget.

Based on their experiences with what has been hailed as the largest successful modernization project done in both North America and in the history of the insurance vertical, on the following slides, DGIG and Blue Phoenix identify some best practices that may help insurers when replacing their legacy systems.
