RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. – November 21, 2004 – Sapiens International Corporation N.V. (NASDAQ and TASE: SPNS), a worldwide provider of insurance technology solutions, announced that it has been recognized as a leading vendor in the Global Life Insurance Solutions market in a new report entitled “Policy Administration Systems in Global Life Insurance” published by Datamonitor.
The report draws on Datamonitor’s recent Insurance Technology Decision-Maker Panel survey of over 120 life insurers in Europe and North America – which showed that policy administration will be a crucial area of investment for life and pensions providers. Insurers are rapidly realizing that, to obtain lower unit costs and faster time to market, it will be essential to improve the flexibility of their back
office processing systems, by either re-engineering or replacing their technology systems.
In the report, Sapiens’ INSIGHT(tm) was described as one of the stand-out vendors that
have the potential to succeed in the market for future top-tier system replacement. Datamonitor believes the future-proofed technology offered by the vendors is likely to lead to long-term success in the marketplace.
“Sapiens Life & Pensions INSIGHT(tm), although a new system is fully componentized
and web-enabled, with the capacity to run, pensions, health and savings on a single product platform…further development of its partnership with IBM should help cement its business transformation capability” notes the report.
“We are very proud to be well positioned amongst the seven leading companies in the
market” said David Ofek, Sapiens’ Executive VP, Business Development and Marketing. “This is a direct result of our domain expertise, and working closely with our customers to bring the best solutions to market.
