Paul Johnson—Principal of Insurance Data Migrations (IDM) has successfully delivered data driven business solutions for the insurance sector for the past twenty seven years.

In Paul’s early career he led development teams for broker software and multinational insurers before spotting a niche market for a medium sized company to work seamlessly with in house experts. By positioning IDM between large consultancy firms and individual contractors IDM has grown quickly. Seven years on, they have a loyal customer base. Paul has a deep understanding of the importance of bridging business challenges with technology solutions. 

Paul is a hands on principal with an extensive skill set. His knowledge and application of technology extends from 3GL development on UNIX platforms, to SQL, visual development, relational databases, and MS Integrations Services (SSIS).

Recognised by the British Computer Society, Paul presented at the ‘Data Migration Matters’ annual conference hosted by John Morris and sits on the ‘Data Migration Pro’ panel as a data expert. 

Advising on data quality is just one area of Paul’s expertise. Paul’s architectural skill enables him to deliver solutions that transform client’s data. His work enables businesses to report on areas of their organisation they were previously unable to access, creating significant operational advantages. 
Often with any data cleanse or migration, complex data issues mean there is sometimes no tool for the job. With Paul’s understanding of technology and insurance rules he is apt at developing conversion scripts from SQL and VBA, and designing ETL processes, or converting large amounts of legacy data from a Unix system into a MS SQL Server 2000 database.

It is his close relationship with stakeholders that enable his team to gain an insight into client operations. This and Paul’s practical know how creates an environment of mutual trust allowing the client to get on with their core tasks and for Paul to deliver quality data.

To Paul one of the most important rules of integrating the client’s data is to engage the business users and to be meticulous in your approach.

“You think about the approach, discuss with the customer, think about the architecture, set up the staging area, talk more with the customer, and think about the process. If you can’t find something to do the job you build it and you get the job done right.”

This along with his passion for solving problems drives Paul to do the right thing by his clients ensuring they have an excellent experience. That desire is still there after twenty years and the longevity of his customers is a testimony to the belief and core values of Insurance Data Solutions. 

When Paul is not working he enjoys spending time with his wife and three young girls. Once a motorcycling enthusiast his young family have now converted him to a cyclist—that is when he is not developing a successful business.
