The following report titled “APPLY AGILE METHODOLOGY FOR AUTOMATION AND UPGRADATION TO ENHANCE PERFORMANCE” clearly elaborates about the process, technical design and flow of the Migration project. The whole processed is carried out at ABC Inc., which is a client of XYZ. Inc.

Company ABC, established in 1940, has headquarters in Bellevue, WA. Company ABC offers a wide range of Health Insurance services that are needed. ABC Insurance Company grew out of two Indianapolis, Indiana based mutual insurance companies, Mutual Hospital Insurance Inc. and Mutual Medical Insurance Inc. formed in 1944 and 1946.

ABC, Inc. instituted a policy of saving seven years’ historical claims and remit data since 2012, but its in-house database systems have started to have trouble meeting the data retention requirement while processing millions of claims every day. An initial study has been conducted ABC Inc. to see the resolution time to process a given set of task. To improve the Task done time of the project, Hadoop was implemented to address the issue and resolve it. The ASM (Agile Scrum Methodology) was used at every step of the development and migration process. Main steps involved in the Project are the Inception, Elaboration of requirements, the methods used in gathering the necessary data and the development of application and Migration.
