Cognizant partners with Duck Creek to launch “Duck Creek OnDemand (DCOD) Cloud Accelerator Offering Kit” for insurers seeking cloud benefits 

April 17, 2023

Cognizant Technology Solutions today launched a cloud migration accelerator offering (“Cognizant DCOD Accelerator Offering Kit”) for insurers to migrate to Duck Creek OnDemand (DCOD) in partnership with Duck Creek. Through this partnership offering, insurers of all sizes can accelerate their cloud migration journey to Duck Creek OnDemand, realizing both technology and business outcomes in an accelerated and cost-efficient manner.   

The offering addresses multiple aspects of transformation, including achieving business value, upgrading the ecosystem application stack, addressing core DCOD remediation/migration, and seamlessly integrating DCOD into the client’s ecosystem. Insurers can stay abreast of rapidly evolving technology by utilizing OnDemand capabilities, which provide access to new product features and upgrades as they become available, ongoing support, and enhanced security measures. 

“Insurers are competing for relevance in the Digital Economy transformation,” said Meera Krishnamurthy, BFSI Global Markets Head. “Cognizant recommends that insurers focus on providing a modern customer experience by leveraging a data-driven ecosystem that fosters agility and efficiency across the insurance value chain. The new accelerator helps carriers transition to an integrated Cloud-based platform modernization approach that enables them to drive innovation faster, launch products more quickly, and deliver hyper-personalized and responsive experiences more easily.”  

Market-leading industry platform providers like Duck Creek Technologies are introducing SaaS options to migrate on-premises clients to the cloud. There is a natural alignment for Cognizant to bolt on a focused DCOD accelerator offering toolkit by providing a controlled accelerated path for insurers to migrate to DCOD.  

Duck Creek Technologies is the intelligent solutions provider defining the future of the property and casualty (P&C) and general insurance industry. Duck Creek is driving progressive investments to enhance the roadmap for Duck Creek OnDemand, and it recommends that insurers plan their cloud migration carefully to realize their full potential.  

“Cognizant is widely recognized as a global leader in information technology, transformation, and business process outsourcing services, and we’re happy to partner with them in this critical journey for clients,” said Sean Murphy, SVP of Customer and Partner Enablement at Duck Creek Technologies. “Their industry knowledge, global client landscape, and innovation passion match ours. We look forward to accelerating Duck Creek OnDemand cloud enablement by partnering with them to ensure business outcomes are realized in a well-defined and accelerated approach.”
