Abstract: The Insurance Industry is evolving. There is stiffer competition for customers using new technologies and there are new regulations meant to establish guidelines for insurers. International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS 4) accounting principles and Solvency II risk guidelines are such regulations. SAP Insurance Analyzer is an integrated family of financial software intended to help insurance providers comply with the new regulations.
This paper describes tests we performed with IBM z Systems, DB2 for z/OS and SAP’s Insurance Analyzer. The focus of this paper was on the interactions of the application with the IBM supplied infrastructure and not the functional aspects of IA.
