Zurich Insurance Group moving IT infra to AWS

Zurich Insurance Group is moving its enterprise information technology (IT) infrastructure to AWS, Amazon said in a statement. As part of a multiyear strategic collaboration, Zurich will move 1,000 applications to AWS by 2025, including core insurance and SAP workloads.

Zurich Insurance will use AWS’s infrastructure, advanced analytics, and machine learning technologies.

Zurich will be using Amazon’s Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), Aurora (AWS’s fully managed MySQL and PostgreSQL-compatible relational database built for the cloud), and App Runner.

Zurich will also use RISE with SAP on AWS. The SAP workloads migration will consist of 20 landscapes, a collection of servers for a specific workload, including more than 100 individual systems such as human resources (HR) and finance.
