AXA Gulf has partnered with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to improve its services, increase security and become more agile on the world’s leading cloud system as the insurance firm seeks to move the majority of its technology infrastructure, leveraging the new AWS Middle East Region in Bahrain.
The insurance firm stated that by using AWS infrastructure for the majority of its platforms, AXA Gulf will be able to focus on building more innovative products and services for customers—the move is estimated to reduce the product development cycle by at least 20 per cent.
Javier Cásedas, the Chief Information Officer at AXA Gulf, said, “Our collaboration with AWS helps us to improve our business operations to achieve greater efficiency as well as security for our customers, which was a key driver for the migration, allowing us to further enhance our longstanding commitment to security.”
AXA said that it will also utilise ML services such as Amazon SageMaker, to build predictive models to better understand customer behaviour and deliver personalised offerings.
Similarly, the company said that it will also benefit from secure AWS data centre and network architecture, in addition to the AWS security, identity and compliance services to maintain the highest levels of data security.
“We are excited to be working with AXA Gulf and supporting its digital transformation through the power of cloud computing,” said Vinod Krishnan, the Head of MENA, AWS.
