Primerica taps IBM to use hybrid cloud capabilities

Primerica, an insurance and financial services company, has tapped IBM to use hybrid cloud capabilities in order to modernize their internal and customer-facing application development.
IBM Cloud for CIOsLeading insurers such as Prudential Singapore, Allianz Taiwan and American Association of Insurance Services (AAIS) are already customers of IBM Cloud.

Primerica’s IT team in association with IBM Garage team designed a hybrid cloud strategy to modernize their applications on IBM’s hybrid multi-cloud platform. IBM has assisted the company to migrate its business applications, including WebSphere, to a private cloud in their data center.

Primerica can keep sensitive data on-premise, while gaining access to cloud technologies they need, such as containers and microservices, to help build and modernize software with greater speed.

“We knew IBM could execute on a transformation roadmap to help us get the most out of new technologies like Kubernetes and eventually bring all of Primerica’s applications into a hybrid cloud environment to speed development,” Barry Pellas, CTO of Primerica, said in a statement.
