Milliman is constantly upgrading from a solid MG-ALFA foundation to enhance the system with high-quality, content-rich upgrades delivering first-in-class business benefits. A streamlined upgrade process allows clients to quickly take advantage of new releases.


MG-ALFA is a 64-bit application that is currently supported on Server 2003, Server 2008, Windows 7, and Windows 8. The actuarial formulas in the formula database are written in an open, intuitive language that is easily understood and modified by actuaries. MG-ALFA then uses a built-in translator to translate the database after any modifications are made. This creates a compiled version of the code to be integrated in to the core calculation engine at runtime. This approach offers both the flexibility of interpreted code and the speed of compiled code.
