DEVK Versicherungen: Operate the cloud reliable with 2nd Level Infrastructure Support Services

Comprehensive service transition expertise and experience enabled a fast and productive start for the delivery team upon the successful go-live.

Agile Solution Approach by itelligence

As a customer of the NTT DATA, DEVK was advised by the subsidiary itelligence on securing the operation of a new IT system landscape. After the initial contact in December 2016, those responsible for the business areas of sales, pre-sales and cloud infrastructure services at the BIT.Group, which had been acquired by the company, drafted a convincing solution approach.

In addition to supporting the go-live, it was important to ensure comprehensive 2nd level support for the modern infrastructure of more than 30 existing applications. This involves the use of state-of-the-art components including Cisco hardware, VMware virtualization, SUSE Linux Enterprise as the operating system and Ansible as the automation solution, which are all operated from our own, in-house data center.

Qualitative Implementation of Customer Requirements Using an Individual Service Model

Comprehensive service transition expertise and experience enabled a fast and productive start for the delivery team upon the successful go-live in April 2017. Since then, further service provision has been ensured by itelligence service management at its Dresden location. As an integral part of the service, regular coordination, in particular on site, ensures the qualitative implementation of customer requirements – flexibly and individually as per the practice of DEVK.

Using DEVK as an example, itelligence’s pragmatic and fast solutions demonstrate the potential and synergies created by the efficient cooperation of various departments. The partnership with itelligence enabled the right experts to be identified and the development of customer-oriented solutions, which sustainably reinforce the objective of the joint commitment between itelligence and DEVK.
