Unum is a leading provider of employee benefits, including disability, life and voluntary insurance. Nearly one in five U.S. employers who provide group long-term disability benefits and more than 42 percent of the Fortune 500 do business with Unum.
As part of their overall enterprise SOA strategy, Unum needed a service mediation layer to decouple apps and other endpoints from their physical services. By implementing this architecture, their goal was to increase development velocity, enhance security and reduce infrastructure costs.
CA API Management was selected to expose APIs to both internal and partner developers. It is the mediation gateway for all their enterprise services, delivering capabilities such as security, routing, throttling and schema validation.
With CA API Management in place, Unum has standardized their approach to SOA governance, enabling them to better leverage APIs to deepen customer relationships and improve customer loyalty. CA API Management has reduced infrastructure costs as well as added agility to their IT architecture.
