A general insurer was upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 8 and needed a secure server environment to analyze the compatibility of their desktop applications.
With Accenture Cloud Platform (ACP), the insurer was able to assess desktop application compatibility with different Windows operating systems in days instead of months—saving the client both time and money.
This general insurer operates in multiple geographies with businesses in both mature and emerging markets.
The timeline of the upgrade depended on quickly establishing the server environment. However, the insurer was concerned that its own internal processes and server self-provision wouldn’t be efficient enough—thus resulting in potential missed deadlines.
