Migration to Ruby on Rails from AS400

"We had an ongoing development effort, but without Relevance, we would never have made it to production. Their focus on shipping solutions enabled us to move off our expensive AS400 equipment with confidence. Relevance was an absolute joy to work with."

Kevin Russell, VP of Technology, Baldwin Mutual Insurance Co., Inc.

About the Project

Baldwin Mutual had an existing policy creation and management system, built around an AS400. Relevance helped re-implement the system in Ruby on Rails and shift the deployment environment from an expensive and aging mainframe infrastructure to a hosted Linux environment. Baldwin Mutual now has a more flexible and feature-rich system and began to see immediate return on their investment through reduction in hosting costs.

Relevant Solutions

  • Custom Ruby on Rails development, building the new policy management system from the ground up
  • Extensive batch and offline printing support for policies, checks and account documents
  • Data transfer from existing AS400 system to modern, lightweight database
