First SAP for Insurance Implementation in India

The Challenge

A top financial company’s general insurance business will be rolling out the 29th insurance company in the country with focus on DIGITAL insurance products to start with. They were extremely keen on implementing the SAP Insurance Core application on a tight timeline both for infrastructure and SAP customization.

The Solution

The infrastructure runs on SAP-accredited Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances with Elastic Load Balancing distributing data traffic. The company takes advantage of Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) for storage services and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) for backups to help optimize the infrastructure. Also, it uses AWS Lambda, which automatically shuts down non-production systems during quiet periods to reduce costs.

By adopting SAP S/4HANA running on the AWS Cloud, EGI executives now have real-time data on EGI operations. Besides improved decision making, the SAP infrastructure on AWS is significantly more cost-effective than the on-premises data centre.

Additionally, EGI has cut down on the amount of IT resources it needs for its SAP systems. The auto-scaling and failover capabilities available with AWS services save the IT team a lot of time because they are no longer responsible for so many routine administration tasks.
