Post Fritz & Macziol Asia Bags GSIS IT Project


The Government Services Insurance System (GSIS) recently awarded an PhP 18 million contract for its Business Intelligence System to Fritz & Macziol Asia (F&M Asia). The GSIS IT Project will significantly speed up the pension fund’s business data processing time, allowing it to provide better-tailored services at a faster rate.

Fritz & Macziol (F&M Asia) is as Systems Integrator devoted to providing end-to-end IT solutions through cutting-edge technology delivered by highly skilled and trained technical consultants. F&M Asia tailors IT solutions to the specific needs of its clients in the Asia-Pacific region. F&M Asia is headquartered in the Philippines and has a satellite office in Singapore. It is the operational base for the Asia-Pacific regional operations of the European information technology provider Fritz & Macziol Group.

F&M Services and Business Development Vice President Corinne Johnson notes the significance of the project for Philippine IT as it is the first time that the latest Exadata X4 box is being used in the Philippines.

According to the Oracle website, the Exadata Database Machine is engineered to be the highest performing and most available platform for running the Oracle Database. Exadata is a modern architecture featuring scale-out industry-standard database servers, scale-out intelligent storage servers, and an extremely high speed InfiniBand internal fabric that connects all servers and storage. Unique software algorithms in Exadata implement database intelligence in storage, PCI based flash, and InfiniBand networking to deliver higher performance and capacity at lower costs than other platforms.

“What this means is that with Exadata, the GSIS will be able to process their business data such as revenue, costs, insurance payouts, and others – at a much faster pace than ever before. This would allow GSIS to generate reports for management and generate data for business units to make operating decisions with a faster turnaround,” said Johnson.

The implementation of Exadata is expected to begin within the first quarter of 2014.

“F&M Asia believes the GSIS Exadata implementation will be a watershed project for Philippine IT, enabling government agencies as vital as the GSIS to get information much quicker and respond better to its members,” said Johnson.

Johnson explains that F&M Asia will be providing GSIS with a full Data Warehousing solution that will also process GSIS' huge amount of data at the fastest possible efficiency. This will allow government employees’ contribution data to be rendered into up to date reports which will be in an easy to read format that GSIS fund administrators and pensioners can use.

“This will speed up the reports and data processing 5 fold,” said Johnson.

With the new Business Intelligence System, the GSIS will be better enabled to come out with new products and benefit plans faster.
