Insurance Co. Tames Its Complex Web Applications
Data Correlation and Analytics Enabled by Ironstream
While attempting to keep up with the tremendously face-paced evolution of the insurance industry, one Fortune 500 insurance company was presented with a significant obstacle that could have potentially hindered its ability to manage the company’s massive and growing transaction volumes. Although its high-powered mainframes were more than capable of handling such volumes, the complexity that resulted in the presence of over 100 Java Virtual Machines (JVMs) in its web-application architecture considerably clouded its visibility into the details of these operations, eventually resulting in an extremely time-consuming and difficult problem-solving process.
In order to address this inefficiency, the insurance company sought to achieve an enterprise-wide capability that would allow it to collect all the relevant data across the entire systems infrastructure and then correlate the information into a single location. By choosing Precisely’s Ironstream® product in combination with the big-data platform, Splunk® Enterprise, the company was able to easily collect and transform mainframe log information as required, ultimately allowing it to gain full visibility into its entire web-based application infrastructure and enabling faster and easier problem resolution.
