Paving a path to the future for P&C insurance companies.
For today’s insurers, the ability to prepare for the future, whatever it brings, is paramount. The onset and momentum of the digital transformation in nearly every industry was a wakeup call for insurers, highlighting the need for modern, open and customer-centric technologies to support changing customer expectations and a new way of doing business. An insurer’s IT strategy must not only include innovating for digital engagement, but also for data, analytics, and cloud delivery. This means overhauling digital channels and modernizing core business systems to become more prepared for a rapidly changing future business environment.
New technologies are only transformative if they are implemented correctly and optimized in line with carriers’ business goals. To reap the full benefits of such systems, insurers need an integration partner with core systems experience, deep insurance industry know-how, and the digital capabilities to handle every possibility. For P&C carriers that invest in Duck Creek solutions to modernize their core systems, Capgemini is that partner.

Large Global Insurance Carrier
The client, one of the largest global P&C carriers, needed to standardize and radically improve their policy administration system to stay current with product enhancements and technology upgrades. Core policy administration transformation across small commercial, middle-market and financial lines in NA and Australia.
The highlight of our solution was parallel development of multiple products roll out within divisions (small commercial, middle-market wholesale, etc.) and organization.
- Used common pool of resources (product model, common code base, accelerators) across multiple products.
- Leveraged product modelling for marketplace offerings and performance tuning for large schedule policies. Large, balanced team composed of onshore, near shore and offshore members allowed “relay” style implementation – passing critical modules back and forth providing virtually 24-hour cover.
This implementation ensured improved speed to market and lower cost of total ownership.
A Major UK Carrier
A major UK-based carrier, in the midst of implementing Duck Creek’s Policy and Billing solutions, was faced with complex program roadmap, numerous internal and external integrations, and issues with the incumbent SI vendor. The client engaged Capgemini to complete the program implementation for their direct-to-consumer features and affinity partners.
Capgemini, in close collaboration with the client, recreated a new program execution plan.
- Capgemini reviewed the full program including requirements definition, configurations, architectural approach to integrations, functional and non-functional testing, and project oversight.
- We also adopted a SAFE Agile approach, that promoted a true ‘one team’ culture.
Ultimately, the program was completed on schedule helping the client to reduce production support costs and gain trust of their partners.
