Prima Solutions Joins IBM's ISV Advantage Initiative to Help SMB Customers in the Insurance Industry - Companies to Offer Open, e-business on Demand Solutions
Paris (ots) - Prima Solutions, a vendor offering a specific software platform to insurance companies, has joined IBM's ISV Advantage Initiative, a program designed to provide independent software vendors (ISVs) with technical and marketing support to help meet the specific information technology (IT) needs of small and medium business (SMB) companies. Customers are seeking solutions that help them better integrate processes and applications internally and externally and allow them to quickly respond to changing market opportunities on demand.
Prima Solutions' software platform leverages legacy systems to provide all internal and external business process stakeholders with real-time access to the insurance company's data and transactions.
Enabling Prima Platform on IBM WebSphere and DB2 running on Linux help Prima Solutions to expand into the SMB market faster and more effectively than is possible with proprietary platforms.
"The depth of this relationship guarantees insurance operators with a very high level of performance and durability for the solutions implemented on the combined offering of Prima Solutions and IBM software and hardware," said Bertrand Liber, Executive VP Marketing & Alliances, Prima Solutions.
"Medium sized businesses are seeking open and dependable solutions that are cost effective and easy to maintain," said Lesley Norris, director of ISV & Developer Relations, IBM Europe, Middle East and Africa. "We are pleased that Prima Solutions has joined ISV Advantage and recognize the value of working together to best meet our joint customer needs in the insurance industry."
The IBM WebSphere and DB2 family includes products that are designed and priced specifically for small and medium businesses -- easy to install and manage, scalable to grow with a business, rich in functionality, and based on open standards to allow integration with existing software and hardware platforms.
Prima Solutions will also work closely with IBM to expand its visibility in target vertical industries through various co-marketing and sales activities.
ISV Advantage is administered by PartnerWorld for Developers, the developer resource for IBM Business Partners. It is a worldwide program designed to help software developers reach broader markets, lower their costs of doing business, and take their products to market faster.
