(www.gawkwire.com) – NaviSite Europe Limited, a Time Warner Cable company, announced today that insurance systems specialist RDT has deployed NaviCloud Director to underpin its testing and development systems, allowing RDT’s software engineers to focus efforts on creating disruptive solutions for the insurance market. RDT chose NaviSite after a competitive review due to its reputation as a trusted and reliable advisor as well as the flexibility of its cloud offerings.
NaviSite’s infrastructure-as-a-service platform, NaviCloud Director, was built with business flexibility in mind. The platform allows RDT to provision on-demand and scalable infrastructure services from virtualised resource pools. This enables RDT to quickly build and develop more complex IT environments to help expedite their time to market. With the support of NaviSite, RDT was able to build its most complicated virtual environment to date.
Since the full deployment of the solution, RDT has been able to reduce the time taken for new software releases. A product launch would typically take RDT four months to develop and bring to market; however, since the deployment of NaviCloud Director, the organisation has been able to launch four new versions of its core product within the same timeframe, which is a significant increase in time to market.
RDT has been at the leading edge of general insurance software for 24 years. Its flagship product, Landscape, is the UK’s most widely used packaged general insurance administration solution. The organisation is determined to continually develop its software portfolio and invests heavily in research and development to constantly enhance its systems to provide better quality products for its customers.
RDT’s CTO Rob Grigg said: “The insurance industry has been slow to adopt new technologies but in the next five years we will see a technical revolution within the industry. We want to make sure that we are equipped with the best IT infrastructure so we can develop quality products for our customers and continue to disrupt the insurance market. As we expand our business we will continue to look to NaviSite to support the development of our services.”
Sean McAvan, Managing Director, NaviSite, said, “We are delighted to be working with forward thinking companies like RDT who recognize that the organisations that will succeed in today’s market, are the ones who use technology to capitalize on new business opportunities. By working with NaviSite, RDT has leveraged our NaviCloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service cloud solution to reduce their software development release cycles and speed up their time-to-market.”

Too many insurers are held back by outdated legacy systems, but at RDT we know that insurance can be managed better and sold better.
