294418 - Modernizing Insurance with Docker Enterprise: The Physicians Mutual Technology Journey

Session Speakers
Session Description

Physicians Mutual, a 117-year-old Nebraska-based insurance company, had worked on modernizing its systems for over a decade. In such a complex industry, any IT refresh can seem like a never-ending journey. The existing application architecture made it difficult to scale or refresh applications individually. Everything was bundled, forcing the IT team to take a “one size fits all” approach that limited legacy modernization and business agility. To “untie” the bundle and create a more agile and responsive environment, the IT team determined that containerization and Dev/Ops were the answer. In 2017, the company piloted a microservice architecture and an automated pipeline on Docker Engine (CE) to deliver the new corporate API. Following the successful pilot, the company relaunched 11 mission critical services on Docker Enterprise, paving the way for a complete transformation of the company’s application architecture. In this session, you’ll learn: About the journey of transitioning the corporate API from traditional application server deployment to containerized Microservices on Docker Enterprise How the company built consensus and kept momentum in an enterprise environment About the technologies and frameworks used, including log aggregation, system monitoring, and security About key business benefits in agility and responsiveness achieved
