“By deploying VMware technology, we managed to reduce the IT costs by 10 percent and improve productivity by 15 percent year on year.”
Bert Bouw, Director IT Operations, Achmea
Achmea is a major financial services provider in the Dutch market. The market and society are constantly changing, so the challenge is to keep innovating and remain relevant to customers. In order to reduce the diversity within the IT environment and also benefit from economies of scale on a technological level, Achmea decided to standardise on VMware technology and Azure Cloud from Microsoft. They opted for VMware Cloud Foundation because it offers a future-proof platform. This not only allows Achmea to continue to digitise and innovate their activities and services, they also make them perfectly ready for the cloud. Their aim is that 80 percent of their applications run in the cloud by 2025.
