Union Insurance selects DXC Technology to accelerate digital transformation
DXC Technology, the end-to-end IT services company headquartered in Virginia, has announced that it has been selected by Union Insurance, the Dubai-based provider insurance products in the Middle East, to migrate its data centre infrastructure and core business applications to Amazon Web Services (AWS).
This implementation will provide Union Insurance with greater flexibility to meet seasonal customer demands, a scalable back-end infrastructure and better return on investment (ROI), thereby increasing overall IT effectiveness and enhancing customer experience, DXC Technology said in a statement.
“Being able to differentiate ourselves is key in today’s highly competitive insurance market. We need a trusted partner that can understand and accelerate our digital transformation strategy,” said Anshul Srivastav, CIO at Union Insurance. “Partnering with DXC to transform our IT infrastructure will help to position our company as a game changer in the industry while ensuring that we are ready for the future of digital insurance.”
The migration will comprise building and maintaining the insurance provider’s complete cloud infrastructure, inclusive of license consolidation, application performance, business availability and continuity, and security. This implementation is an extension of the current agreement to support Union Insurance in their digital transformation journey.
“The shift toward digital is taking place in the insurance industry and across the Middle East region, and we are witnessing a rapid uptake of digital technologies as organizations move to reinvent themselves digitally,” said Mark Diekmann, General Manager and Offering Leader, Cloud, Platforms and ITO at DXC Technology Asia, Middle East and Africa.
