KOT Insurance is governed by insurance and financial sector regulatory entities such as the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA), making security always a high priority.
When vulnerability concerns arose for its IT infrastructure and SAP systems hosted in a local data center, the insurer accelerated planned changes. KOT Insurance wanted greater cost-efficiencies, improved flexibility, and security. As a trusted partner and an established leader in SAP cloud migrations, SoftwareOne was a natural choice to help. Microsoft Azure was selected as the most suitable cloud option for the company’s SAP landscape. It included increased flexibility and the Disaster Recovery solution necessary for a highly regulated industry with strict security requirements.
Utilizing its proven SAP on Azure solution, SoftwareOne planned and executed the SAP to Azure migration. As a result, the new platform has reduced costs while improving resilience, security, and reliability, and accelerating support response times for business-critical applications.
