Generali | Speed as the key to digital change

Speed as the key to digital change

Generali Deutschland AG includes well-known insurance brands Dialog, CosmosDirekt, ADVOCARD and Generali itself. It is one of the largest direct insurers in Germany and part of the same-named Italian insurance group. Besides classic life and health insurance, automobile, property and legal costs insurance, the product range also includes innovations in the field of "Smart Insurance".

As part of an agile transformation, we worked together with Generali employees in cross-functional teams on business-critical issues to achieve sustainable changes in the implementation and provision of digital solutions and products. 

We focused on central, business-critical technologies that had grown over long periods and been developed based on legacy architectural patterns. Our primary goal is to use DevOps key metrics such as release frequency and lead time to enable agile teams to deliver continuously and independently.

During this partnership, employees and managers experienced the immediate impacts of the changes made, learned from practical experience and made quick course corrections using feedback from customers.

We value the progress and energy, that Thoughtworkers bring into our teams. They constantly challenge us, draw us out – on very different levels – and they never lose sight of the big picture. This is exactly what we were looking for.
Joachim Schwartz
Head of IT Architecture and Testing

Now that the technical foundations have been laid, there is scope for future digital improvements, keeping the customer at the center of our focus. Technology is moving ever-closer into the core of the company, and the teams at Generali are able to explore future business opportunities much earlier.

How can we help you achieve faster growth?
