Primerica, a leading provider of financial products and services in North America, earned a solid reputation by empowering middle class America on a personal level to address their financial needs. Like most enterprises, they had mission critical systems in the data center, including mainframe and regulated workloads, as well as traditional development and IT processes that they wanted to modernize with cloud and new DevOps methods. To help prioritize and map out their journey, Primerica partnered with IBM Garage experts to define a cloud strategy aligned to their business priorities.
Primerica chose an open, hybrid multicloud platform to help modernize applications on premises and adhere to strict security and compliance requirements, while using the same consistent platform to build and extend core systems with new innovative applications on public cloud. The platform is built on Kubernetes technology, which provides the freedom to scale applications easily, and the flexibility to move them anywhere, to any cloud or on premises, without recoding. With access to innovative technology at their fingertips, Primerica’s 130,000 life insurance licensed representatives engage with clients to create a financial game plan that puts them on a path toward financial security.
