Global technology leader Capgemini recently announced the successful migration of Auto Club Group (ACG)'s core insurance processing applications to Google Cloud. This strategic initiative, orchestrated by Capgemini, empowers ACG to simplify its IT infrastructure, streamline operations, and elevate application capabilities and server management, thereby enhancing efficiency and productivity.
Faced with an imminent end-of-service deadline and rising costs, ACG sought a trusted business and technology transformation partner with the expertise to support its transition to Google Cloud. Capgemini, recognized for its industry-leading capabilities in guiding clients through similar journeys, was chosen to collaborate with ACG on this critical initiative.
The company oversaw a seamless migration encompassing ACG's entire production and non-production server infrastructure, ensuring stability, security, and future-proofing for the technology stack. ACG now possesses a robust platform that can scale to accommodate future digital transformation endeavors.
This transformative initiative is expected to yield substantial long-term cost savings of approximately $500,000 per year for ACG. By consolidating its data centers and product suite to leverage Google Cloud's infrastructure, ACG ensures business continuity while optimizing operational expenses.
Madhu Nandagiri, Vice President of Infrastructure and Digital IT at Auto Club Group, emphasized “This was a critical and time-sensitive initiative for ACG that will yield significant value in terms of cost savings, system scalability, and resilience and was a key component of our broader transformation journey. The partnership and collaboration from Capgemini and Google Cloud was critical in executing this highly complex initiative seamlessly with little to no impact on our business operations. Kudos to the teams on this success that serves as a testament to our deep long-standing partnership.”
Shane Cassidy, Head of Global Insurance Business Unit at Capgemini, expressed excitement about the collaboration, highlighting the focus on building a foundation for a digital and sustainable future. Cassidy emphasized “We put the right people and skills in place for the team to manage this transition, without compromising on security, and to mitigate any service disruption. We are excited to help them realize quantifiable business value through this transformation journey and discover new opportunities together to drive further value creation.”
Nigel Walsh, Managing Director, Insurance, Google Cloud, underscored the broader implications of embracing cloud technology, emphasizing the shift from managing infrastructure to driving strategic innovation. She added, “Our longstanding partnership with ACG and Capgemini to modernize ACG’s infrastructure and transform its insurance processing will not only help reduce cost but ultimately improve employee and member experiences. We look forward to working together to harness the power of cloud and AI to enable transformational change and drive business value.”
