The CEO of a $2 billion
medical insurer complained that he never knew how well
they were doing; only how well they had done.
Performance was measured at the end of the quarter and
even that took days to deliver. The IT team was
asked to solve the problem, to deliver up-to-date
performance results to the CEO's PC.
The company had grown through
acquisition. The information the CEO wanted

different schemas and interfaces presented a
decidedly non-trivial challenge.
The ReFrame Single-Server Solution
Three members of the IT staff
spent two hours training on ReFrame one morning.
They developed and deployed a working solution early

40 work days using Java.
The solution used ReFrame's adapters and a single
server running ReFrame to interact
with the eight existing systems. A ReFrame form
was created and deployed to provide a real-time
display of the data.
ReFrame provides the user interface, processing
logic, and interconnection between itself and the
eight separate IT systems.
Accommodate Change -
Fast, Easy, Safe
Should the company acquire
yet another firm, its IT infrastructure can be
incorporated via ReFrame Adapters. If traffic
overtaxes the server running ReFrame, the application
can be distributed across multiple servers in a
ReFrame Application Service Grid, even while
Additional applications can be added to the ReFrame
Application Service Grid and existing ones modified
in response to changing business needs.
ReFrame enables you to quickly, easily, and safely
accommodate the changing size and shape of your
