Dell and VMware to boost global IT for Munich Re

The technology companies are also aiming to help the business better adhere to compliance requirements.

Azure VMware Solution, part of Microsoft Azure, and a modern private cloud based on Dell Technologies and VMware aims to generate a multi-cloud architecture where data and workloads can be processed where they are required and shared across multiple environments.

The cloud architecture is designed to help boost the customer experience.

“With Dell Technologies and VMware, we are creating a consistent cloud operating model to standardise our infrastructure and increase our environment’s performance, stability, and resilience in a smart way,” said Robin Johnson, chief information officer, Munich Re. “This modern multi-cloud infrastructure will help us in our daily business operations by providing the agility to match the right cloud to any application or use case.”

Bradd Lewis, Dell Technologies vice president and global lead for financial services, said: “The insurance industry is going through a technology revolution ranging from how they process claims to how they engage their customers. Munich Re turned to Dell and VMware with the ambition of creating a multi-cloud strategy, that could provide a powerful and stable IT infrastructure and respond flexibly to the demands of a dynamic industry with a seamless, standardised and automated platform.”
