Aviva unites operations in 28 countries with cloud computing
Aviva is a global life and general insurance services company built around the needs of its customers. It has offices in 28 countries with 54,000 employees serving 50 million customers, and first started operating more than 300 years ago.
In 2007, Chief Executive Officer Andrew Moss set out his strategic vision—One Aviva, Twice the Value—to unify the company under a single brand, worldwide. Global communication and collaboration across the business was a key challenge, which required both a technical environment and cultural change. To address this, Aviva implemented Microsoft Office SharePoint Online as its communications environment and partnered with Microsoft Services, which deployed the solution quickly and cost-effectively within the tight 150-day timeframe.
Together with Microsoft, we hit the overall goal in 142 days and helped Aviva achieve the deployment in around one half of the cost of the original budget.
