We delivered a single centralised  data system which enhanced security

Overview

Aegon is an international life insurance, pensions and asset management company based in The Hague, Netherlands. It has subsidiaries across 25 markets in the Americas, Europe and Asia; employing almost 27,000 people and serving millions of customers.

 

The problem

Aegon’s global data was maintained in multiple local systems which meant accessing and processing this information was a slow and laborious exercise. Aegon needed a faster solution whilst maintaining accuracy and security.

 

“Retrieving and aligning our corporate data was slow. We needed a faster, reliable and one-click solution for our global organisation.”

Jan van der Ham, Project Manager, Aegon

 

Aegon needed a solution that would provide a central depository of all their corporate data globally, provide 24/7 access for multiple users and be customised to meet the company’s specific needs.

 

Our solution

After considering various competitors and an existing in-house system, Aegon chose Blueprint OneWorld. The flexibility and customisation options of Blueprint OneWorld were major factors in the decision process.

 

“The possibilities and flexibility of Blueprint OneWorld are evidently top of the league. Offering to develop and integrate new custom technology into our existing system made all the difference.”

Albertine Kronenberg, Legal Counsel, Aegon

 

Aegon opted for our hosted option meaning that responsibility for Blueprint OneWorld performance, maintenance, backup and upgrades rested with us. Our hosted service meets the highest security standards through our ISAE3402, ISO27001 and ISO9001 certified data centre.

 

The outcome

Aegon has been successfully using Blueprint OneWorld for a number of years. It has delivered a faster, more reliable solution for their global organisation whilst creating a secure and compliant environment for Aegon to meet all their governance and compliance needs.

 

“Blueprint OneWorld has proven to be reliable and released us from the additional burden of using more time consuming and, not always successful, alternative processes.” 

Jan van der Ham, Project Manager, Aegon
