Full Story


The Aetna IT team was tasked with creating a Human Resources Hub that could integrate employee data from acquisitions, and hundreds of silos throughout the company, to provide a 360-degree view of employee data. After its successful implementation, the project laid the foundation for integrating data for Customer 360 views in order to create competitive health plans for customers.


With MarkLogic, Aetna was able to deliver an entire line of business in just nine months.
