BluePhoenix And Police Mutual Team Up To Improve Services For Police Families

BluePhoenix ( www.bphx.com) (NASDAQ: BPHX), the global leader in legacy language and database translation, announced the completion of a project that will begin to help over 200,000 police officers receive savings, investments and insurance services quicker.

Police Mutual Assurance Society (PMAS), founded in 1922, offers financial help, an advice service, and a range of exclusive products designed especially for the members of the UK Police services and their families. The company provides prompt, reliable service while leveraging people and technology to best understand the needs of police officers and their families.

PMAS was using a DEC-Alpha (Open VMS) environment to handle critical customer information and share data between different financial platforms. This environment and its surrounding systems became increasingly difficult to support and often lacked the ability to integrate modern systems used to gain insight from customer data.

BluePhoenix technology and services were used to migrate the legacy language and database from Natural/ADABAS to a new environment leveraging Microsoft SQL Server Enterprise, Windows Server, Visual Studio and Hyper-V.

David Loughenbury, CIO of Police Mutual, acknowledged the business benefits of moving to the new platform. “The old platform required significant manual work to export data and had no rules or intelligence for automation. The new platform allows us to process and share data between business groups quicker with less risk. This project is the first phase of modernizing our overall infrastructure, reducing operating costs and adding integration with products like Microsoft Dynamics CRM. Now, our services and marketing teams can leverage data to do what we do best- know our customers and their needs.”

The year-long project translating over 1 million lines of Natural and Adabas data was not without its challenges. “The DEC-Alpha environment came with issues like file versioning and dynamically submitted Natural code for the DCL. Luckily, the source environment is ASCII like Windows so we were able to minimize codepage challenges,” says John Regan, VP of Delivery at BluePhoenix.
