DXC Technology and Zurich signing outsourcing contract

DXC Technology and the Zurich Insurance Company have signed an agreement by which the parties wish to extend until December 2022 the Master Services Agreement that will support Zurich’s digital transformation initiatives. The agreement was originally signed in 2009. With this new extension DXC Technology will become the Preferred Systems Integrator supporting Zurich’s strategic goal of bringing Zurich’s data center environment to the next level using a “digital-first” approach.

As a centerpiece of its platform transformation journey, Zurich has turned to the hybrid cloud to deliver innovative applications and services, enabled by DXC, to more than 210 countries and territories. DXC will provide Zurich with private cloud as a managed service and in-life management and integration services for the company’s use of public cloud. With the addition of digital platform and cloud services delivered by DXC, Zurich’s hybrid infrastructure will enable it to seamlessly integrate new services from many providers and to support all workloads between private cloud and public cloud.

Zurich will move to DXC’s hyperconverged private cloud, a software-defined data center (SDDC) solution that meets scalability and security requirements at a lower cost. Powered by the DXC Agility Platform’s hybrid cloud management solution, Zurich shall be able to reduce its server provisioning time, reduce costs, and accelerate development with streamlined DevOps practices.
