Strategy for modernizing the architecture and urbanization of the IS
In order to become the French leader in life insurance, Apicil Epargne decided to launch a major project to modernize, containerize and urbanize its system.
The client's challenges and objectives
Apicil Epargne is the asset management branch of the Lyon-based insurer Apicil. The Apicil Group, a long-standing client of Novelis, is a French complementary social protection group, the 3rd largest in France.
Apicil’s ambition is to become the leader in France in the field of Life Insurance and to use technology and innovation as a lever to achieve this by offering a seamless path served by digital for both external and internal customers. This includes:
Becoming a hub and exposing its services in order to develop partnerships and provide a powerful platform for its sales force
Distributing its financial products through multiple channels
Developing and deploying all these new functionalities with a very fast time to market
Implementing a new application architecture that facilitates technical upgrades or migrations
We have been supporting our client in its strategy of urbanization, development and maintenance of its savings and life insurance tool since the beginning of our activities and this strategic project is still ongoing.
More recently, our client decided to modernize its system build and deployment chain in order to improve its processes and to be on a Cloud Ready architecture.
We support APICIL on this latest project to :
Design the new deployment architecture and define the application and hardware requirements
Adapt the application components for deployment in Docker containers
Set up the build chain with different environments (production, pre-production, several recipes)
Prepare and execute the failover plan
