Actifio and Charles Taylor partner up to benefit tech insurance sector

29 Nov 16

As a result of the digital transformation across all sectors, traditional approaches to data management such as backup, disaster recovery, test and application development, have become unsustainable.

That’s according to Actifio who has just revealed a partnership with Charles Taylor InsureTech, the insurance technology company.

The partnership will combine Actifio’s copy data virtualisation technology solutions with Charles Taylor's 130 years of experience in serving the insurance industry.

The aim of the partnership is to match the success Actifio is already experiencing in industries such as financial, manufacturing and the service provider market.

Charles Taylor recently launched Charles Taylor InsureTech to target the 90 billion global insurance technology market. 

Jason Sahota, CEO, Charles Taylor InsureTech, says technology is starting to play an important role when it comes to the insurance industry.

“Which is why Charles Taylor InsureTech has been created to address the challenges faced by our clients worldwide,” he explains.

“By partnering with a modern solution provider like Actifio, we are equipping Charles Taylor InsureTech with the technological substance and expertise that will truly make a difference to the clients we serve,” says Sahota.  

"We believe this partnership represents an opportunity to mirror the success in the insurance sector."

Patrick O'Donnell, VP of International Sales at Actifio, says that as a forward-thinking company the opportunity to partner with Charles Taylor is an exciting one.

"As more companies within the insurance sector realise now is the time to modernise and remain competitive, partnerships such as this that get Actifio's copy data virtualisation technology on the radar of CIOs and IT departments are extremely valuable."
