Originally founded in 1861 as a Friendly Society, Royal London became a mutual life insurance company in 1908. The Group is now the UK’s largest mutual life and pensions company, operating a number of well-known brands, including Scottish Life, Scottish Provident, Bright Grey and Ascentric.
Having evaluated the possibility of upgrading to a Trimetra NOVA 5 platform, Royal London decided to move to Fujitsu’s new super
NOVA VME application, which is platform independent and capable of running on any standard Windows or Linux server platform.
Developed in the 1970s, VME is one of world’s most stable mainframe operating systems and powers the UK government’s top three financial systems, including the Inland Revenue with 100,000 users. This highly scalable system continues to provide unparalleled performance and Fujitsu has promised to support VME until at least 2020.
