Insurer selects CloudBees Jenkins Platform to achieve 'digital by default' initiative

CloudBees, Inc. said Allianz Insurance has selected the its Jenkins Platform to accelerate software delivery.

Allianz Insurance will use the CloudBees software to support its ambition to become a ´digital by default´ business. Allianz Insurance is one of the largest general insurers in the UK and part of the Allianz SE Group, the largest property and casualty insurer worldwide.

With a 400-person team relying on Java and mainframe software practices to deliver a diverse array of insurance products, Allianz Insurance was finding it harder to move developers between teams when tight project schedules required it. To increase consistency and meet demand for quality software on shorter delivery cycles, the insurer turned to CloudBees to increase automation and establish a common set of continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) practices across its development teams.

The CloudBees Jenkins Platform enables teams to use an automated, flexible and scalable approach to accelerate the delivery of innovative software applications. After an initial cloud-based pilot project, Allianz Insurance transitioned its Jenkins deployment to the CloudBees Jenkins Platform, on-premise. The company has also started to use CloudBees Jenkins Operations Center to centrally manage its Jenkins environment.

CloudBees is the hub of enterprise Jenkins and DevOps, providing companies with smarter solutions for automating software development and delivery.

UK-based Allianz Insurance is part of the Allianz SE Group.
