Willis Towers Watson - Innovative analysis applications for the insurance industry

Willis Towers Watson is known for providing best-in-class analytical tools and data for the insurance industry. To maintain the highest standards, Willis decided to move their core risk analytics systems to a NoSQL database. After researching the top vendors, they chose Couchbase for its high availability, superior caching performance, and flexible data model for unstructured data. After consistently achieving high performance in their initial projects, Willis made Couchbase its NoSQL database solution for a wide range of business-critical and customer-facing applications.
