Insurance companies are increasingly focusing on seamless, digital customer experience as a key factor for success. This is one reason why Sapiens CustomerConnect on Azure – a direct-to-consumer application that enables insureds to buy policies, view the statuses of their policies and accounts, and issue claims – is sought-after by insurance carrier CIOs and often combined with other Sapiens digital solutions, such as Sapiens Intelligence.
In recent years, Sapiens International Corporation (NASDAQ and TASE: SPNS), a global provider of software solutions for the insurance industry, has been experiencing rapid growth in customer demand for cloud installations of its products. Sapiens is a one-stop-shop: it develops state-of-the-art software, implements products to fit customer-specific needs and provides ongoing maintenance and support for cloud-based installations.
Cloud Valley, a leading cloud company, Microsoft Gold Partner and repeat partner of the year, was chosen by Sapiens to perform a strategic assessment of the company’s operating model. The assessment resulted in Sapiens choosing to work with Cloud Valley on both the application and IT aspects of Sapiens CustomerConnect on the cloud.
As part of cloud architecture and cloud migration, Cloud Valley experts led design and deployment processes for Azure cloud’s high availability, security, and reliability for Sapiens CustomerConnect’s application and database layers. A disaster recovery solution and plan were also deployed, including back-up and business continuity processes.
Cloud Valley also provides Sapiens with a full kit of managed services, including network operations center (NOC), back-up, disaster recovery, security operations center (SOC), database administration (DBA) and DevOps as a service. These managed services include customer support, 24/7 operations center and proactive maintenance, plus on-demand activities and changes.
