    ABOUT THIS SESSION:

    Fortegra Financial, a leader in insurance marketing, administration, technology development and distribution, needed to standardize and automate decision making in its Claims Adjudication system. With tight timeframes, there was no time to re-write the legacy AS/400 system. Fortegra implemented business rule technology in a .NET application integrated with its legacy system to reduce the cost and increase the efficiency of processing a claim. This session will describe how Fortegra met its goals without a legacy rewrite or pilot project and will include both the business and technical perspectives of the project.
