Case Study 1
Challenge: A large Connecticut based insurer needed to migrate their Corporate Owned Life Insurance
block of business of 120,000 policies from their legacy policy administration platform. The insurer
engaged The Conversion Factory to convert the block, to build and test product requirements, to build

hard and fast end date for the project which allowed for 9 months from start to finish.
Delivery: The Conversion Factory ran the full project per our methodology, which broke the project into 2 phases: Initiation and Execution. The Initiation phase took 10 weeks and produced all of the project requirements which included Data Maps, Data Gap Report, Product Business Requirements (UL, VUL, ISWL, PPVUL products), Interface Requirements (15), Business Processing high level requirements, Conversion Strategy and Approach and Testing Strategy and Approach. The Execution phase took 6 months, followed by 1 month full production parallel.
