Success Story Achmea Success Story - Powering Hybrid IT with Workload Automation
With Universal Automation Center, the largest Dutch insurer consolidates multiple scheduling and file-transfer platforms, setting the stage for its integration-platform-as-a-service journey.
Founded in 1811, Achmea is the largest insurance provider in the Netherlands and the world’s eighth-largest cooperative insurer. Investing for the future drives the Achmea IT team responsible for orchestration, automation, and IT infrastructure architecture.
As a financial services company, having complete control over managed file transfer and job scheduling/workload automation applications is critical for Achmea. This requirement is especially true given the complexity of their ongoing shift toward the cloud.
We saw the need for a single solution that could work with all the platforms in our company and perform file transfer as integrated tasks within a workflow. It also needed to work in a hybrid/multi-cloud environment.
