IAG wins praise for IT, data solutions

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Google

IAG has earned a Red Hat Innovation Award for the unification of its IT systems and its data advances.

The insurer has been working to reduce the number of policy systems and claims systems it uses, creating a unified platform under its Serenity project.

It says technology provider Red Hat’s OpenStack cloud platform has allowed staff to innovate with data solutions.

Data Engineering Director Kieran Clulow says as IAG has grown through acquisition, it has acquired different technologies that are inconsistent and incompatible.

EGM Data David Abrahams said: “Data has been spread out and siloed and fragmented across the organisation, and it is difficult to piece that information together to get that one complete view.”
