Industry: Insurance Services
Emp Size: 4,500+
Headquarters: Morristown, New Jersey
A market-leading commercial property casualty insurer, headquartered in New Jersey, wished to transform their on-premise IT environment into a cloud-native environment by consolidating existing data centers and modernizing applications. They wanted to migrate specific workloads on Azure and modernize certain applications.
To achieve these goals, the insurer was looking for a technology partner that is specialized in carrying out Azure Foundations Assessment, Cloud Economic Solution Assessment, and Azure Migration Engagement. The insurer also wanted to establish PaaS Compatibility/Readiness of their in-house developed business reporting system and migrate it on a container-based platform through an Application Modernization Assessment.
The technology partner was expected to define, develop, and deliver an actionable roadmap for migrating their applications on cloud including workload prioritization, cost analysis, and business case to identify optimal workloads for migration planning.
Azure assessments for cloud readiness and roadmap for smooth migration
Motifworks was chosen by the insurer as an ideal technology partner to perform Azure assessments and establish an enterprise cloud migration and modernization roadmap for their core business applications. This plan included deployment of applications through a right approach to reduce data center footprint.
Motifworks’ team entered into the discussions with the insurer’s core IT team to carry out analysis of a critical business unit within their data center and help them plan a migration. An Azure Foundations Assessment was performed by Motifworks’ team which promptly gave them a holistic view of their data center assets. Based on the assessment, both the teams were able to design an actionable migration plan that included workload prioritization and cost projections.

App Modernization/PaaS Compatibility Assessment
After successfully developing and implementing the migration plan, Motifworks’ team were further aligned with the insurer’s application development team. The insurer’s CIO and VP began exchanging dialogues with Motifworks to modernize their in-house developed reporting tool through an (Most Valuable Professional) MVP.
The reporting tool that gives the insurer the ability to process information and create actionable reports. Once in every quarter, the insurer used to generate reports for internal purposes and decision making. The processing time taken by the tool to generate a report was 10 hours because it was running on a relatively old architecture.
Therefore, Motifworks’ MVP was tasked with performing PaaS compatibility and readiness assessment, architecting a framework in Azure, and conduct sessions to seamless plan the migration.
The reporting tool was successfully migrated to a container-based microservices platform on Azure, as this new shift dramatically brought down the report generation time from 10 hours to merely 8 minutes. Today, the insurer can generate business reports on regular basis and gain timely insights to improve business performance.
