Skuld goes live on 6.3
Skuld recently went live on TIA 6.3, upgrading from version 5.2.
Skuld recently went live on TIA 6.3, upgrading from version 5.2. Skuld has been with TIA since 1999 and have upgraded multiple times since then. Skuld conducts their upgrades themselves. TIA was involved in the pre-analysis phase to help get the process going, and then provided support when any technical issues came up.
“We are very excited about what the TIA 7-track has to offer. Because we are keen to stay on the upgrade path and ensure a smooth transition to the new track"
Skuld does not have a Life & Pension offering to the market, and therefore are not implementing the major feature of TIA 6.3 which was the first version to support Life & Pension. However, as Rune Skogseide, Manager of the upgrade process, explains it:
“We are very excited about what the TIA 7-track has to offer. Because we are keen to stay on the upgrade path and ensure a smooth transition to the new track, we thought it made sense to upgrade to TIA 6.3 now, as a sort of stepping stone, to the new user interface, features and functionality offered in the 7-track which we will consider upgrading to in 2014.”
Skuld has not yet implemented the new SOA functionality, but plans to do so in the coming months.
“We are excited about the benefits of having SOA architecture integrated into our platform, particularly as it will make integrating with tools such as mobile solutions and ERP systems so much easier. We see the ease of integration as one of the major benefits of the 6-track in TIA.”
