As driverless cars become more and more futuristic, the humble ‘robot’ will need to become more human – but without making any errors whatsoever.
With decades of experience implementing large-scale insurance transformation programmes (e.g. Guidewire software), Endava recognises the unique and challenging marriage between large IT projects and the business change required to truly enable success.
Endava’s Solution Assurance service is specifically designed to not only ensure the technical oversight and quality protection in an insurance transformation programme, but also provide a crucial involvement in the transformation as a holistic whole. It is imperative for us to fulfil a role that prevents issues, rather than reviewing them and then commenting after the damage has been done. For us, it’s about ‘getting it right first time’.
“Solution Assurance is not just a certified and qualified pair of eyes and ears, shadowing and thoroughly checking all aspects of delivery.” Endava’s Chief Executive Officer, Roy Murphy explained; “But also a very real, on-site presence ensuring the client is protected from delays, costly overruns, conflicts, disputes and a range of other issues. Our participation has often proved essential in the early proactive identification of potential problems, as well as ensuring their escalation and resolution. Prevention is better than cure.”
Digital or business transformation is fraught with operational and financial exposures, especially when implementing new and sometimes unfamiliar technology. “Difficulties or delays in the delivery of technological advancements has a cumulative effect on the whole transformation process.” Added Roy Murphy; “We’ve been in the trenches and have the scars to prove it. Living and breathing the daily challenges of complex transformation programmes as we have, you get to understand how to avoid the pitfalls. We bring this to our clients through our highly experienced and qualified consultants.”
For over 20 years’ Endava has been delivering robust business solutions. We know the significant investment an insurance organisation is likely to make in technology. We also know how very important is to ensure that investment is maximised and functioning as it should.
With our unparalleled experience in delivering Claims and Policy Management Systems, we are regularly invited by vendors and end-users, such as Guidewire, to audit their existing systems and oversee future delivery. Over this time, we have perfected our Solution Assurance methodology to blend seamlessly into the development life cycle.
We perform Solution Assurance projects (applied against Agile best practices) as well as completing technical assurance, project readiness and deployment readiness assessments around the world. Guidewire clients around the world select Endava because:
During transformation programmes led by us, we follow various principles and techniques to ensure the highest level of SA. For example:
We ensure all artefacts progress through the progressive environments (from development –> systems –> user acceptance –> performance –> production
