AGPM insurance group chooses S3NS to develop its cloud services platform
- With more than 1.8 million contracts under management , mutual insurance company AGPM provides a full range of insurance and family protection solutions for members of the defence and security community. The insurer recently signed a contract with S3NS for the provision of a cloud-based operational data management solution.
- AGPM has selected the Local Controls by S3NS offering to combine the most advanced technologies of Thales and Google Cloud in support of its digital transformation and to meet the insurer's strategic goals, drive competitiveness and guarantee data security.
The new agreement will optimise the processes used by AGPM's information systems department and introduce the innovations that information systems professionals require. With support from S3NS, the insurer will implement a secure cloud solution powered by the most advanced technologies available today. AGPM expects the project to deliver improved agility, higher performance and shorter response times in both IT production and data usage, while guaranteeing enhanced security for policyholders.
"The cloud creates value for AGPM by accelerating our operational processes and we expect the project to drive a significant improvement in our performance," said Christian Gros, Director of Information Systems, AGPM.
"As tangible benefits of AGPM's ongoing move-to-cloud strategy, the first use cases will be available on the Local Controls by S3NS architecture from December 2023," added Guillaume Hédoux, head of the Architecture and IT Transformation division at AGPM.
"AGPM's decision reflects that S3NS solutions, and in particular our Local Controls by S3NS offering, dovetail perfectly with the needs of the insurance industry. It also confirms the Group's commitment to provide substantive support for the insurer's move to a trusted cloud environment as it steps up to the growing challenge of data protection in the cloud," said Cyprien Falque, CEO of S3NS.
