andsafe: New Digital Insurance

The Challenge

The two greatest challenges were to define and implement an unprecedented 100% cloud strategy for the creation of a new digital commercial insurance company and an ambitious timeline of six months for the creation of a completely new kind of digital insurance.


The Solution

adesso insurance solutions was able to deliver all the products needed to develop a new digital insurance. On a technical level, andsafe didn't build on a traditional data center, but obtained all the necessary services from the Amazon Cloud. This enabled andsafe to achieve a completely new pace of development.


The Outcome

adesso insurance solutions set up the core IT for a new insurance company, including a fully cloud-based application landscape. Instead of reinventing the topic of insurance, andsafe digitally revolutionized it: minimal administration, lean processes and a high level of performance.

To build our digital commercial insurer, we were looking for an all-rounder experienced in the sector, with specialized and technological leadership competence. adesso is diversified in all technology areas of relevance to us, and was able to offer us the necessary IT services under one roof. An important criterion for us was adesso’s readiness to assume overall responsibility for the technical and creative implementation."
