The Client Domain.
A major innovative insurance company that stands out by offering integrated insurance products and services to renowned and rapidly expanding brands throughout the United States. Our unique approach enabled our insurance customer and its partners to seamlessly incorporate car, home, and travel insurance into their digital platforms, granting customers swift and hassle-free access to insurance solutions that are both easy to acquire and manage, all while ensuring exceptional value.
Our engagement as a Managed Services provider commenced in April 2022, during which we were honored to be selected as an AWS Premier Partner and a certified AWS Managed Services Provider. Working hand in hand with the Client’s engineers, our DevOps as a Service team seamlessly integrated with Open’s DevOps team, operating collaboratively to deliver proactive and continuous optimizations and enhancements to their AWS foundations and automation.
To initiate the process, we conducted a comprehensive assessment of the Client’s Insurance environment. Based on our findings, we developed a meticulously detailed network design that was subsequently approved by the Client. Leveraging the power of automation and Infrastructure as Code (AWS Cloud Development Kit), we efficiently implemented this design, ensuring a seamless transition.
The solution we tailored was specifically designed to meet the Client’s present and future needs, encompassing a multi-region environment that adheres to relevant compliance standards. By customizing our approach to align with the Client’s unique requirements, we enabled them to operate within a secure and scalable environment, setting the stage for their ongoing success.
Other key attributes of the solution implemented were:
- Implemented rinse and repeat automation pipelines to reduce repetitive tasks and increase efficiency.
- Ensured consistent environments throughout the SDLC (dev → stage → prod) to minimize production deployment issues.
- Hosted the existing front-end application in Amazon S3 for scalability and reliable access.
- Decoupled the data tier from the application tier, enhancing scalability, flexibility, and maintenance.
- Implemented enhanced security checks for code, infrastructure, and containers to proactively address vulnerabilities.
- Introduced horizontal scaling through auto-scaling to uplift Open’s infrastructure availability.
Employed a consultative approach to design, utilizing short form design proposals that were presented to the Client team for review and approval before implementation.
