Basler Insurance has selected SAS Enterprise Guide to integrate its German Ring Life Insurance and German Ring Property-Casualty Group into a single business intelligence platform with a centralised data warehouse.

SAS has been selected by Basler Insurance as its data management platform and also upgraded to latest software, SAS 9.3.

SAS Enterprise Guide will provide targeted data marts for several underwriting, marketing and sales management applications and will be accessed by about 3,000 internal and external users.

Basler Insurance project migration head Franz Schumann said, "Moving the German Ring data from an IBM to a SAS platform was key in obtaining a unified view of the entire group’s data and efficient data management."

Basler Insurance and Baloise Bank SoBa provides comprehensive insurance and pension solutions for private individuals, small and medium-sized enterprises as well as selected industrial companies.
