CASE-STUDY_Legacy Modernisation

Innovation in Reinsurance

Modernising legacy to support fully automated underwriting.

Like most businesses in the reinsurance sector, our customer had a decentralised legacy landscape where functional overlap featured heavily. This created inefficiencies for underwriters as they moved between multiple tools and interfaces.

To build commonality and to harmonise the legacy landscape, we designed a common reporting interface at a database level across all Treaty and Facultative business domains to normalise operations, and a common submission and coverage module to define semantics in proportional and non-proportional business. This enabled us to standardise both the way offers are created and signed, and the management of long-tail triangle structures, bringing the workflow into a single tool through automation.

Cloud-native data platforms.

Use Microsoft Fabric, Azure Synapse, Databricks and Snowflake to power your core data infrastructure.

Data and analytics are a critical source of value and insight. But without a strong operating model and a common foundation for your assets, workloads and services, the journey to data-driven can be long, complex and expensive.

We help you combine your databases and data sources with analytic workloads in a unified environment. Our teams help you mature your DataOps approach with packaged architecture, templates, automation and ongoing managed services.

Data-intensive applications.

Ensure your data applications are secure, stable and performance-ready for use in wider business applications.

Underperformant and unoptimised databases can significantly impede your user experience, leading to scenarios like long load times and clunky interactions that frustrate your customers.

We examine the volume, variety, velocity, and complexity of your data. Our experienced teams then design technical application architectures which meet your transactional, analytical and warehousing requirements, with robust batch or stream data processing pipelines and fault-tolerant microservices and APIs.

On-premise to cloud migrations.

Move and modernise your data workloads rapidly, safely and efficiently on Microsoft Azure.

On-premise environments are particularly restrictive to data teams. Running legacy, inelastic platforms is a particular struggle for ML solutions and often results in high data storage costs.

We help you modernise and migrate your data workloads to Azure, giving you flexibility in storage and processing solutions and the agility to adapt to changing business needs. This enables both significant scale-up for ML experiments and spiky workloads, with access to advanced analytic services.

Hadoop to Databricks migrations.

Plan and execute cost-effective migrations to Microsoft Azure.

Many businesses have significant Hadoop estates that are becoming increasingly misaligned with the needs of modern data teams and data-driven businesses. Key issues include scalability and integration limitations, performance bottlenecks, inflexible data processing and limited support.

We help you explore cost-benefit analysis for your Hadoop migration, evaluating impact on performance, security and scalability. We then rapidly migrate workloads to the cloud to reduce cost, optimise resources and deliver new workloads.
