IT solutions and services outfit 3i Infotech has whipped the covers off its Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) technology centre of excellence for the insurance sector. Where’s the centre located? Everywhere and anywhere is the answer as 3i Infotech turns to a virtual web-based model to interact with customers across the region. 3i claims that the virtual centre will help customers in the insurance industry address the business challenges that they face. The industry-focused online resource will showcase Oracle e-business suite, Oracle database and Fusion middleware as well as 3i Infotech’s Premia solution. “This initiative highlights 3i Infotech’s commitment to provide compelling technology solutions with significant value-add to regional insurance businesses,” said Hari Padmanabhan, deputy managing director at 3i Infotech. “Through our relationship with Oracle we will gain access to Oracle’s extensive network of partners in the region as well as take advantage of Oracle’s innovative solutions.” “Through the technology centre of excellence for insurance we can complement our joint regional campaigns and provide our growing customer base with unmatched global delivery capabilities,” he added. Oracle has signed up 3i Infotech as part of its EMEA ISV programme. During the launch of its latest centre of excellence, 3i demonstrated the integration of Premia with Oracle’s e-business suite through the use of common language and Oracle’s middleware products. “The insurance industry is a highly-regulated sector and therefore needs compliant, auditable systems which are transparent and secure,” said Harry Stehrenberger, VP Oracle financial services EMEA. “With Oracle e-business suite and 3i Infotech’s Premia we will provide customers a proof of concept which can be implemented in a fully scalable manner. We will work closely with 3i Infotech’s dedicated team using a service oriented architecture approach to build on our end-to-end workflow-driven solutions,” he added.
