    • The Challenge Provide practical and cost effective access to mainframe based applications Allianz’s core policy administration system for the broker business is a mainframe-based application developed in-house, which includes modules for managing new business, renewals, claims, etc. Used on a daily basis, it is the absolute core of its broker business. Until the late 1990s, these applications were accessed using dumb terminals. However, with the advent of the PC, it wasn’t practical or cost-effective to provide both, so a solution was sought.

The ROI has always come down in favor of Rumba. Adam Rates, Senior IT Manager, Allianz UK Allianz customer success
