With Accenture Life Insurance & Annuity Platform (ALIP), all it takes is a simple choice and you’re in the cloud. Whether you choose cloud
or on-premise deployment, you get the same deep functionality and advanced technology architecture you expect from the
award-winning, industry-leading life and annuity platform.

With “cloud-enabled” you gain the best of both worlds

ALIP’s “cloud-enabled” versus “cloud-native” strategy means you don’t have to sacrifice business
functionality for cloud flexibility—regardless of deployment option—because every customer uses a
common code base. By leveraging a flexible and adaptive architecture, ALIP is helping you reap cloud
benefits more quickly.

Here’s how cloud-enabled works:

ALIP is on the leading edge of modern with an architecture that decouples applications, business
processes and data, segmenting them into business services (hybrid microservices). You choose the
services you need and where you want to deploy them—on premises, cloud or both—and ALIP ensures
they communicate through configuration that drives business orchestration.

ALIP’s cloud-enabled approach is also cloud agnostic. Unlike cloud native solutions, you’re not locked into
a specific cloud vendor. You choose your cloud provider, while ALIP adds a virtual data center and private
network model to support hybrid and public cloud deployment options. You leverage your own dedicated
cloud instances of ALIP and still maintain your unique product and service differentiation in the market.


Accenture is leading the market with
the first cloud implementations of
end-to-end new business and
underwriting and policy administration
systems for leading North American life
and annuity carriers.


Your life and annuity core systems have decades of valuable data and functionality that you need to keep.
ALIP’s cloud-enabled approach lets you keep it, making your move to the cloud a simple deployment choice.

Get the cloud benefits you need—scale, efficiency and high availability—with the functionality you expect
from today’s most modern and comprehensive new business, underwriting and policy administration
system. Whether you choose to implement ALIP end-to-end or some of its components, it’s supported by a
secure cloud environment from the industry-leading Accenture Cloud Platform.

ALIP’s cloud-enabled strategy provides a fast,
smooth transition to cloud for life and annuity carriers.

Here’s what ALIP in the Cloud can do for you:

As an alternative to on-premise implementation, ALIP in the Cloud provides infrastructure without a large investment — carriers only pay for what they actually use.
Accenture Cloud Platform (ACP)—positioned the Leader in Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for Public Cloud Infrastructure MSP, Worldwide)—provides single accountability including Accenture Security Operations Center (SOC) with additional Client Data Protection (CDP) for cloud.
ALIP’s Base First program ensures that new and enhanced features and functionality—developed by Accenture or on behalf of carriers—become available to the ALIP client community, delivering value exponentially as platform participation continues to grow. Carriers in the ALIP cloud benefit from proximity and the synergy of a standardized deployment approach.
ALIP’s single-code-base approach and its Continuous Upgrade program deliver upgrades seamlessly and predictably—cloud or on-premise deployments—enabling carriers to quickly reduce the cost and complexity of their IT environments, while forging a flexible low-risk path toward full cloud adoption.
ALIP’s cloud microservice architecture and advanced configuration capability will immediately position carriers to evolve their product and process innovation in the cloud. Additionally, ALIP Interface Exchange enables carriers to have broader access to sales channels, permit anytime-anywhere access for producers and consumers, and expand carriers’ partner networks on demand.
Full administration capabilities can be run in the cloud or augmented in an on-premise environment. Carriers can scale quickly for periodic needs such as product development, testing, conversions, pilots, and/or overnight processing without long-term investment.
Scale up day one or start small and eliminate constraints for greenfield operations with the same solution. Proven performance results assure processing power for even the largest of carriers but allow even the smallest of carriers to immediately leverage ALIP’s robust and sophisticated capabilities.
