ACORD LOMA Insurance Systems Forum event is taking place May 17-19 in Orlando, FL this year. For those of you who may not be familiar with ACORD, the acronym stands for Association for Cooperative Operations Research and Development - and is the name of a global, nonprofit standards development organization that is serving the Insurance (and related financial services) industries.
ACORD LOMA is one of the leading Insurance events in the North American insurance market, with typical attendance including representatives from many other countries.
Sun Microsystems will be located at booth #317 at this event. The themes we are focusing on at this year's event are:
Modernization (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure and Virtualization);
Cloud Computing for Insurance; and
Business Solutions across the Insurance Value Chain
We will have various collateral/artifacts/demos supporting these themes, and we will be happy to interact with those of you in the insurance market who are going to be attending. You will be able to download and view the collateral here
As an example, I have been working on an integrated Sun Ray + VirtualBox demo that will highlight some of the recently released capabilities in the secure/mobile desktop computing area. This is something that offers opportunities to decrease desktop management costs, offers data/application security and mobility and is prompting a growing number of carriers to actively look at and deploy.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
