More information on AWS for Insurance

The AWS Cloud has helped insurers of all sizes re-architect their organizations to be more agile and innovative. By working with AWS, you will have access to tools and capabilities to enable a scalable infrastructure, reduce total cost of IT ownership, optimize costs with a pay-as-you-go model, implement automated security and compliance protocols, and improve the entire insurance lifecycle – including underwriting, policy, billing, and claims.

Pacific Life

Pacific Life worked with AWS to bring down operating costs, power actuarial tasks, and transform their IT delivery model.

Accelerate Complex Calculations

By processing on AWS, compute-intensive calculations take minutes rather than days. This provides you the flexibility and time to ask more and deeper questions of the incoming data and discover ways to improve market positions.

Manage Infrastructure as Code

With AWS, you no longer have to manage physical data centers and servers. Treat your infrastructure as code and spend more resources on improving product quality, innovating more quickly, and better serving your customers.

Meet Compliance Objectives

AWS helps customers meet robust business continuity requirements, with features such as frequent server instance back-ups, data redundancy replication, and multi-Region and multi-Availability Zone deployment architectures.

“We can run all 5 million policies in minutes, instead of the standard overnight run times. We can get a very accurate and unique picture of our customers’ market risk exposure — and there is no other solution that offers better performance at a lower cost for this business.”
Peter Phillips, Managing Director, Aon Benfield Securities, Inc.

“Our success is really defined by how fast we can actually absorb the changes in the market, how in an efficient way we can actually respond to that, and ultimately be able to stay competitive. Infrastructure as code is one of the key drivers for that agility, efficiency, and quality.”
Soofi Safavi, Chief Technology Officer, Radian

“Solvency II requires us to implement a complete back-up solution and a high availability architecture. AWS with their multiple availability zones, durability, and redundancy aligns perfectly with Solvency II directives.”
Daniel Sery, Head of Information Systems, Smatis France

Insurers have been utilizing grid computing to power actuarial calculations, determine capital requirements, model risk scenarios, price products, and other critical business operations. By taking these compute-intensive workloads out of the data center and into the AWS Cloud, organizations are realizing increased speed, scalability, and cost-savings.
