Neuron ESB has been selected by Illinois Mutual Life Insurance for its enterprise integration platform. Neuron ESB will serve as the integration backbone for Illinois Mutual’s extensive IT modernization program that includes internal insurance systems, agent-facing web-based systems, third-party services and mobile apps.

Neuron ESB 3.5 is the latest version of the Neuron enterprise service bus that extends the Microsoft platform by providing real-time, reliable and durable messaging, application integration, business processing and web services management.

“Illinois Mutual conducted extensive proof of concept use case analysis with a number of enterprise service bus vendors including open source products and concluded that Neuron ESB was the best fit for our environment,” said Jeffrey Wann, Vice President of Information Technology, Illinois Mutual. “Neuron ESB’s total cost of ownership model, continuous history of integration innovation, rich feature set and ease of use was impressive.”

Since Illinois Mutual’s primary development platform is .NET, Neuron ESB was readily implemented with the company’s own personnel. Wann added, “Our .NET C# developers were able to easily configure Neuron ESB integrations using their .NET skills without specialized training, which will significantly increase the efficiency of Illinois Mutual’s IT function and lower integration costs.”

Illinois Mutual’s modernization program brings together a number of systems to better serve the company’s clientele. This effort gives Illinois Mutual the means to tap the full potential of its existing platforms and ready itself for future technology investments.

“We’re very excited that Neuron ESB was selected by Illinois Mutual to serve as the enterprise integration backbone for their modernization efforts,” stated Marty Wasznicky, General Manager of Neuron ESB. “We believe that Neuron ESB’s native .NET extensibility and new Workflow capabilities set it apart from competitive products. Unlike with other vendors, customers can deploy Neuron ESB to more easily reuse and leverage their existing investments in the Microsoft .NET platform. We look forward to partnering with Illinois Mutual and delivering the capabilities that will help ensure their success.”
