Cedar Secures Data Migration Deal with Automobile Club of Southern California Friday 9 February 2001 PDF Print Cedar announces the license sale of eContent Data Migration Applications to the Automobile Club of Southern California (Auto Club) at their administrative office in Costa Mesa, California. Cedar’s eContent Data Migration Applications will be used to assist in the migration of data of 600,000 Auto Club members having homeowner, condo, and renter insurance policies that are currently being administered on the Auto Club’s existing administration systems. The member information and policy related data will be migrated to a new administration system provided by HUON Corporation. Cedar Services are under the prime contract of HUON Corporation Services. Chris Simpson, Group Manager Information Systems Program Office, from the Automobile Club of Southern California commented: "The effort required to accurately migrate our legacy data is a sizable task that the Auto Club takes very seriously. Our number one concern is to insure our member’s data is handled correctly. Based on Cedar’s proven methodology and experience in the financial services sector, I am confident in their abilities, not only with the benefits we gain from their eContent product but experienced resources that they have to bring to bear during the migration. With Cedar’s eContent Data Migration Application, the Auto Club will be able to establish and re-use a proven methodology as we tackle migrating future member information."
