App Modernization with .NET Core: How Travelers Insurance is Going Cloud-Native

January 23, 2020
At Travelers Insurance, a decade old rating engine was still on the mainframe, making it difficult to scale, expensive to run, and reliant on a shrinking pool of skilled engineers. Rating engines are fundamental to the insurance quoting process, and at the very heart of the business. It was time to modernize and take advantage of the scalability, stability, automation and fast iteration cycles made possible by cloud-native architecture. In this webinar, Viraj Naik of Travelers Insurance and Rohit Kelapure of Pivotal will take us on their journey from mainframe to microservices. Viraj and Rohit will describe how they built a distributed, event-driven rating engine with .NET Core on Pivotal Platform using Steeltoe, running on Linux stem cells. The new rating engine exceeded SLAs and reduced time to production to under 60 minutes. You’ll learn the keys to a successful mainframe rewrite-based modernization, including: ● A pragmatic, domain-driven approach and phased delivery, including implementing a strangler pattern and anti-corruption layers. ● How to port business objects and business rules from mainframe to .NET. ● New innovations developed and delivered during the migration process. Speakers: Viraj Naik, Lead Solutions Architect at Travelers Insurance Rohit Kelapure, Principal Solution Architect at Pivotal
