The Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) has engaged Sycip, Gorres, Velayo (SGV), and Ernst & Young (EY) to design a new blueprint for the system’s Enterprise Architecture.

The partnership mainly aims to upgrade GSIS’s IT infrastructure, enhancing its capabilities, processes, and technology to provide improved services to its members and pensioners.

“This strategic collaboration with SGV and EY—one of the largest professional services networks in the world—marks a significant milestone for the GSIS as we work on a new blueprint that will plot our digital transformation journey ahead,” said GSIS President and General Manager Wick Veloso in a press statement.

The new blueprint will leverage the extensive experience of SGV and EY, outlining how GSIS will utilize cutting-edge technology, leverage data insights, and employ best global practices.

“This partnership enables the GSIS to leverage our plans using the deep experience of SGV and EY. Our new blueprint will spell out how GSIS shall utilize cutting-edge technology, leverage data insights and employ best global practices in our business processes—ensuring that the GSIS continues to improve and set new standards to give the best to our customers, members and pensioners,” Veloso added.

SGV Partner for Financial Services Organization Technology Consulting Anurag Mishra highlighted the initiative’s significance.

“GSIS is undertaking a comprehensive enterprise architecture assessment to craft a strategic technology upgrade roadmap. This initiative breaks away from fragmented solutions and inefficient systems that many large organizations struggle with. By streamlining its technology infrastructure, GSIS aims to significantly enhance service delivery to its members,” Mishra said.

The GSIS Enterprise Architecture Consulting Services Project is expected to play a crucial role in improving GSIS operations, expanding service offerings, and enhancing profitability in the long term. “The objective is to build a world-class institution using updated digital platforms running new Core Pension, General Insurance, and Financial Information Systems,” Veloso stated.

The blueprint, set to be finalized this year, will define new processes and technologies to make GSIS transactions more efficient and secure.

Veloso emphasized the importance of cybersecurity in this initiative.

“Through the EA project initiative, the GSIS is committed to addressing the escalating threats of cyber security. We take a proactive stance in building a secure foundation for our digital workflow, crucial for GSIS growth and sustainability,” he added.
