Sun Life Financial Selects VeniceBridge for Content Integration

Nov 01, 2002

Venetica, a provider of content integration software, has announced that the U.S. operations of Sun Life Financial has selected VeniceBridge for content integration. Sun Life Financial required an integration platform that could provide consistent, bi-directional access to these underlying systems while supporting Sun Life Financial's J2EE technology standards. Sun Life Financial's new business, underwriting, and retirement services groups have large amounts of policy related documents in PDF, TIFF, and Word document formats that needed to be accessed and shared with users both inside and outside their offices.

Sun Life Financial was looking for a solution that would allow both internal users and external customers to access documents, based on policy and permission information, residing in multiple document repositories. After accessing a policy, users of the system are presented with a list of supporting documents and images that provides a consolidated view of their policy information. VeniceBridge was selected to provide a single interface to address this need. Due to the broad scope of this implementation, Sun Life Financial required a solution that was fault tolerant, highly scalable, and compliant with their J2EE enterprise technology standards. Other technology challenges included the need to deliver documents and images to external customers. Where document formats such as PDF were not available, VeniceBridge provided the capability to convert documents and images on-the-fly into browser-ready formats so that special viewing software was not required.
