Max Life Insurance Company Ltd. (“Max Life”/ “Company”), has moved all of its mission-critical database workloads to Oracle Exadata Database Service running on the Exadata platform in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). In addition, Max Life has migrated its core systems to OCI, including customer service, claims management, marketing and policy issuance, resulting in an application performance improvement of up to 70 percent. Furthermore, Max Life’s business service uptime has remained close to 99 percent and system performance of core systems has improved by around 30 percent, thereby contributing to business agility and customer experience.
Max Life offers comprehensive protection and long-term saving life insurance solutions to around4.2 million active customers through e-commerce, multichannel distribution of agency and third-party distribution partners. With India’s insurance sector projected to be the fastest growing among the G20 nations with 7 percent growth over 2024-28, Max Life recognized the need to be future ready by upgrading its on premises legacy infrastructure. It needed scalability, adaptability, online Disaster Recovery site and resilience to ensure system uptime and gain data insights to better serve its large ecosystem of partners, agents and internal teams. Max Life selected Oracle Exadata Database Service on OCI for its scalability, availability and security features.
Suhail Ghai, chief digital and information officer, Max Life Insurance Company said, “As we accelerate Max Life’s digital transformation journey, cloud technologies will be key to enhancing the performance and availability of our core applications for better customer experience. The migration to Exadata Database Service on OCI has laid a solid foundation for us to capitalize on the increasing demand for life insurance in India and propel our growth trajectory.”
Oracle Exadata Database Service is an automated Oracle Database service on OCI that allows organizations to run databases with the highest performance, availability, security, and cost effectiveness. Oracle databases run faster and with fewer resources powered by the scale-out Exadata infrastructure that includes unique optimizations for transaction processing, analytics, and mixed workloads.
Max Life utilized Oracle Cloud Mumbai Region and Oracle Cloud Hyderabad Region for migration. With the Oracle Cloud Regions, Max Life has been able to leverage redundancy and disaster recovery capabilities to enhance business continuity and help meet the regulatory compliance requirements of the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI). Additionally, Max Life utilized OCI solutions such as Compute, Storage, Object Storage, and File Server to provide high performance computing and low-cost cloud storage options to help improve the efficiency and productivity of its IT team.
