Using pre-defined industry blue prints the Discovery Quick Start solution details the relationships between current business processes and related IT system touch points enabling insurance carriers to significantly improve call center productivity, allow on-line real-time quoting, and web enable claims submission. In addition the discovery solution documents and inventories legacy systems allowing IT staff to implement strategic projects faster and reduce application costs and maintenance by sun setting, consolidating and re-hosting aging systems.
"Mergers and acquisitions within the insurance industry have left many companies with large portfolios of disconnected, redundant systems that add complexity, costs and precious time to web enablement projects. Thorough discovery to properly document IT assets is the first step in driving down IT costs and the key to harnessing existing applications for re-use in streamlining key business processes," said Judith Hurwitz, President of Hurwitz & Associates. "SEEC's Discovery not only provides a detailed inventory of a company's legacy applications but also lays a strong foundation for movement to a services oriented o·ri·ent

Discovery Quick Start rapidly inventories and maps current applications to business-critical processes from either the business process or system perspective. Business Process Discovery identifies short- and long-term process improvement opportunities by mapping mission-critical business processes to existing IT assets and systems. System Discovery identifies immediate IT cost saving and system improvement opportunities by documenting enterprise systems and providing interactive analysis of application complexity, redundancy and other variables.
