Power a modernization and digitization initiative to respond to increasing customer expectations and regulatory pressure in the insurance industry


Build and deploy a new IT architecture based on event streaming with Confluent Platform

Like many of its competitors in the European insurance market, Generali Switzerland was at a crossroads a few years ago. The company was facing a challenging market environment with a stagnating economy, increased regulatory pressure, and rapidly growing customer expectations. Rather than stay the course with an existing IT infrastructure that was not originally designed to handle the 24 x 7 demands of today’s market, the company decided to launch a digitization and modernization initiative that would pave the way for sustainable growth for years to come. The foundation for this initiative is the Generali Connection Platform, a new IT architecture based on event streaming with Confluent Platform and Apache Kafka.
