Financial services is one of the most regulated industries in the world. Operating in one country can be challenging enough, but when your customer footprint extends across more than 70 nations, those compliance requirements become even more voluminous and complex.
For Munich-based Allianz Technology, that means developing and deploying Information Management initiatives at a scale few people can even comprehend. 180,000 business users serve more than 120 million customers in 60 different operating entities around the globe.
Allianz Technology is a global IT service provider for Allianz Group. The group’s insurance products range from property to business to health and life insurance, plus the group manages nearly €2 billion in assets for their clients. All those services and multinational clientele make for an avalanche of regulatory requirements, not to mention all of the personally identifiable information stored in various systems.
Balancing regulatory compliance needs with employee productivity is the tricky part, but Allianz Technology has continually risen to the challenge. Like other organizations, they faced the daunting need to properly categorize, organize, and manage an exponentially growing volume of documents and email messages to meet those stringent requirements. To implement this Information Management Allianz Technology turned to Microsoft 365.
