May 27, 2008, 01:00 ET from LOMA

    ATLANTA, May 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Effective use of information technology
 will be critical in globalization efforts by the insurance industry,
 according to an article in LOMA's Resource magazine.
     Life insurance companies have more incentive than ever to pursue
 business beyond their home markets, writes the author of the article, John
 Mara, Vice President of EDS. As over 60-populations expand in western
 countries, and markets around the world become more open, globalization is
 seen as a key to achieving growth.
     Companies that deploy and manage IT resources effectively and
 capitalize on emerging platforms and capabilities can emerge as winners in
 this environment, the author says.
