ISCS Furthers Commitment to Cloud with Creation of New Executive Position

San Jose, CA - July 23, 2013 - Insurance solutions developer ISCS, creator of the SurePower Innovation® Policy Administration Suite, furthered its commitment to cloud-based solutions for core insurance systems with the creation of a new executive position focused on cloud initiatives. ISCS is pleased to announce the hiring of cloud platform development expert Michael Truong as Senior Director of Cloud Technology. The creation of the position and recruiting of Truong align with ISCS's corporate vision that core systems in the cloud will be essential requirements for property and casualty insurers to stay competitive. Two-thirds of ISCS's new insurer clients in the past three years have opted for cloud deployment of their core systems.

At cloud pioneer Savvis, Michael Truong served as a cloud infrastructure architect on the incubation team for the Symphony infrastructure as a service (IaaS) project. Symphony was rated by Gartner as the #1 enterprise IaaS solution in 2010, and some analysts credited the offering as the motivation for the acquisition of Savvis in 2011. Most recently, at start-up Appcara, Truong worked in the development of the first fully automated applications management platform for datacenters and enterprises. ISCS sees Truong's experience as directly applicable to building the next generation of the ISCS private cloud and leveraging emerging opportunities in use of public clouds.

"The business case for enterprise core systems in the cloud is compelling and will become only more compelling over time," said Andy Scurto, president of ISCS. "Risk mitigation alone will drive insurers to the cloud, while the lower costs and increased business agility will give cloud-enabled insurers a competitive advantage. ISCS has long been committed to cloud services and adding Michael Truong in this position is the next step in positioning our insurer clients to lower their risk and increase their competitiveness."

"ISCS's cloud offerings are already robust, and the SurePower Innovation platform has the right attributes for newly emerging capabilities using the cloud," said Truong. "Most exciting for me, however, is the commitment of ISCS leadership to bring the benefits of the next generation of cloud computing to their clients. I am very pleased I will be part of what I believe will be a transformational change in how insurers do business."
