Streamlining Insurance Software Deployment with Azure Pipelines

Allata implemented a CI/CD solution using Azure Pipelines for a technology company already using Azure DevOps. Azure Repos, Azure Pipelines, and Deployment Groups were utilized for building and deploying applications, and Azure Release Pipelines were used for deployment and SQL script execution.

Outcomes

  • Faster releases: Streamline the build and deployment processes for quicker application releases.
  • Scheduled releases: Plan and schedule releases on specific days and times for improved efficiency.
  • Enhanced security: Implement approval-based releases to double-check security and prevent unwanted deployments.
  • Error-free deployments: Eliminate manual errors with automated builds and deployments.
  • Seamless connectivity: Connect directly to Azure DevOps without the need for third-party tools like VPN and RDP.
  • Real-time notifications and tracking: Stay informed about build and release pipeline status with instant notifications and automated tracking on Azure Dashboards.

The Challenge

Streamlining Insurance Software Solutions for Efficient Claims and Billing Processes

A technology company leader in property and casualty insurance claims reached out to Allata to help them optimize their build and deploy process for claims and billing software, which was currently being performed manually. 

This technology company develops claims and billing software intended for property and casualty insurance. They offer custom solutions, as well as integrations with leading industry vendors, to enable clients to capitalize their business and solve critical challenges.

Before partnering with Allata, this company’s manual deployment process involved several key tasks. Once the artifact was ready, they had to set up a VPN connection, connect the remote desktop to customers’ Windows servers (On Premise or Azure Virtual Machines), copy files and finally, deploy the Internet information services website. Also SQL scripts had to be executed manually. This entire release application process (build and deploy) took several hours, was error-prone and relied on one person who was responsible for this task.

The Solution

Transforming Insurance Software Deployment for Effortless Efficiency with Azure DevOps

Given that this technology company was already using Azure Repos and Azure Boards as part of the Azure DevOps product, Allata proposed and implemented a CI/CD solution for the release application process using Azure Pipelines (among other features of Azure DevOps). The idea was that this solution would better integrate with other features of Azure DevOps that were already being used by the client.

The Results

Empowered Release with Azure Pipelines and Effortless, Secure, and Efficient Deployment

By using Azure Pipelines as a CI /CD tool, the customer was able to take advantage of key benefits, such as:
