Sapiens to integrate IBM's WebSphere Portal into its INSIGHT family of insurance solutions.
Sapiens Policy INSIGHT, its policy administration solution for the property/ casualty insurance sector, will be the first in the product suite to include WebSphere Portal.

"This agreement between Sapiens and IBM enables the business innovation our mutual customers need," stated Larry Bowden, Vice President, IBM Portals Solutions Software Group. "Sapiens is leveraging the WebSphere Portal platform to provide the functionality that empowers dynamic interaction throughout the insurance value chain."
"Sapiens and IBM continue to make strides in our partnership and delivering value to the insurance market," said Judy Johnson, Vice President Insurance Strategy, Sapiens Americas.
