As per a Press Release issued by HCL, the application services deal will see HCL continue as Aegon’s digital transformation partner, helping to accelerate innovation by establishing and managing a new multi-vendor ecosystem. HCL will also help implement an agile delivery model to reduce Aegon’s time to market and introduce greater efficiencies through improved application lifecycle management and automation.

The Release stated that “HCL has been a strategic IT services partner to Aegon Netherlands since 2004. During that time, it has delivered application services, partnered in transforming Aegon’s data and analytics capabilities, and helped the insurer to achieve digital leadership through a joint cXstudio, which fosters co-innovation. Aegon wants to build digital at scale to improve customer self service and extend its leadership position.”

We’ve established a strong relationship with HCL over the last 14 years and its intimate knowledge of our business is an important pillar underlying our partnership. HCL’s, in-depth understanding of the vendor ecosystem and significant experience being part of multi-vendor environments for other major global organizations were the key deciding factors.”

Subsequently, Sudip Lahiri, SVP and Head of Financial Services, Europe, at HCL said, “We’re looking forward to continuing our support for Aegon on its successful digital leadership journey”.

Our relationship with Aegon really demonstrates the scale of the success that can be achieved through a true partnership approach, where both parties have invested heavily in a culture of co-innovation and collaboration.”
