Norwich Union Life is using an IBM Websphere enterprise service bus (ESB) to speed up software development and reduce the cost of introducing new financial products.

The ESB is designed to simplify access to data and IT services residing on different systems. The pensions arm of insurance firm Norwich Union will use the ESB to standardise and reuse common IT functions and develop applications to support new products.

“Because the ESB is industry standard, resourcing becomes easier and effort can be concentrated on creating business input and not on coding,” said Paul Gould, chief architect at Norwich Union Life.

The ESB glues together the company’s service oriented architecture, said Gould. After moving to an SOA in 2002, the firm is seeing benefits as the strategy matures, he said.
