Composable technology ... the future of the modern enterprise. But what exactly is it and why should insurers care?
As CTO you’re under enormous pressure to keep operations running smoothly and to provide business transformation through technology. But it’s hard to innovate when you are landlocked by legacy systems that can’t easily flex or scale. Data is often siloed and inaccessible. Changing fragmented systems is slow, expensive, and you can’t pivot fast enough.
For modern insurers that require agility, monolithic applications no longer meet the needs of the continuously evolving business. But fortunately, there’s a better way.
The answer to this seemingly impossible challenge is composable technology. It provides all the building blocks you need to become more flexible. It’s a fluid, pluggable, scalable platform that means you’re no longer locked-in to rigid systems.
A composable platform assumes a modular approach. So, you can pick and choose the interchangeable components you need to create competitive advantage. It’s based around rapid and flexible assembly of independent components, allowing you to combine, and recombine solutions whenever you need to. This gives you the resilience to cope with a dynamic market, and the flexibility to make change as often as you need to.
Composable technology is typically built around 4 factors, known as MACH (Microservices, API-first, Cloud-native, Headless):
At Send we base our composable technology on 3 core principles:
We assume disruption is normal and encouraged, and insurers need architectures better equipped for change. Our composable platform enables you to be on the front foot, to try out new concepts and to make rapid decisions on the go. This means you can:
Our microservice architecture enables the rapid, frequent and reliable delivery of complex applications. By using an agile Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) approach we can build, test and release new capabilities in days. With smaller code change sets this means:
We assume businesses need to flex up and down. With ‘always-on’ cloud architecture you can effortlessly ramp up as your business changes. Integration is simplified with API’s enabling highly dynamic workflows. With our SaaS platform this means you can:
