Cognizant collaborates with Duck Creek to launch “Cloud Accelerator for insurers seeking cloud benefits

Cognizant announced it has launched a new cloud migration accelerator offering that will help insurers of all sizes accelerate their cloud migration journey to Duck Creek OnDemand (DCOD), realizing both technology and business outcomes in an accelerated and cost-efficient manner. 

In collaboration with Duck Creek, a leading provider of comprehensive P&C insurance software and services, Cognizant’s new offering is expected to help address multiple aspects of digital transformation. This includes achieving business value, upgrading the ecosystem application stack, addressing core DCOD remediation/migration, and seamlessly integrating DCOD into the client's ecosystem. Insurers can stay abreast of rapidly evolving technology by utilizing Duck Creek OnDemand capabilities, which provide access to new product features and upgrades as they become available, ongoing support, and enhanced security measures.

“Insurers are competing for relevance in the digital economy,” said Meera Krishnamurthy, SVP and Head of Cognizant Americas Banking, Financial Services and Insurance. “Cognizant recommends that insurers focus on providing a modern customer experience by leveraging a data-driven ecosystem that fosters agility and efficiency across the insurance value chain. The new accelerator helps carriers migrate to an integrated Cloud-based platform, enabling them to drive innovation faster, launch products more quickly, and deliver hyper-personalized and responsive experiences more easily.”

Market-leading industry platform providers like Duck Creek Technologies are introducing SaaS options to migrate on-premises clients to the cloud. There is a natural alignment for Cognizant to leverage a focused DCOD accelerator offering toolkit by providing a controlled accelerated path for insurers to migrate to DCOD.

“Cognizant is widely recognized as a global leader in information technology, transformation, and business process outsourcing services, and we’re happy to partner with them in this critical journey for clients,” said Sean Murphy, SVP of Customer and Partner Enablement at Duck Creek Technologies. “Their industry knowledge, global client landscape, and innovation passion match ours. We look forward to accelerating Duck Creek OnDemand cloud enablement by partnering with them to ensure business outcomes are realized in a well-defined and accelerated approach.”
