Case Study


The Challenge

A multi-national insurance and financial services firm lagged behind its peers in establishing modern architecture and engineering capabilities that enable true digital transformation.

The Process

BCG Platinion deployed technology architects and engineers to build a repeatable Proof of Technology (“PoT”) to accelerate adoption and architecture decisions in NextGen technologies.

We identified key architectural challenges and technology issues shared across Divisions and established baseline prioritization of PoT areas and backlog. Using Agile execution and direct coaching in tools, patterns and paradigms, our team executed 6 PoTs to prove the process and prepare for independent execution for sustainable client repeatability in the absence of BCG Platinion.

The results

3-4x acceleration for developers

PoT participation reduced initial preparatory efforts for developers by several weeks, resulting in accelerated program technology adoption.

5 key technology patterns

PaaS, event messaging, intelligent guided capture, real-time analytic model enablement, micro-entitlements were adopted.

Scaling capability

Initial success in training developers to be engineers led to adopting an engineering incubator, which was scaled from PoT.
