This is a real life digital transformation story about a one hundred year old organisation that you don’t want to miss.
Liberty Mutual chose AWS because of the potential to form an engineering partnership that would sustain through the constant journey of serverless.
The case-study explains that enterprise architecture strategy that Liberty adopted with many serverless-first projects completed using AWS Lambda, or when serverless-first isn’t feasible, a cloud-native option is used for legacy workloads. Now more than 50 percent of Liberty Mutual’s workloads run in the cloud.
There is also a review of Liberty Mutual’s use of AWS Step Functions, to create an event-driven workflow in which the data feeds from each line of business are transformed into a series of events, or financial transactions, processing 100 million transactions in one run at the end of every month, which means that for the majority of the month, it is offline and therefore not accruing costs.
And the AWS Cloud Development Kit (AWS CDK), an open-source software development framework in which engineers can use familiar programming languages to define cloud application resources.
As part of the enterprise architecture strategy, the company supports its engineers in earning AWS certifications and provides training and in-house workshops.
Engineers also use AWS Well-Architected, a framework that helps cloud architects build secure, high-performing, resilient, and efficient infrastructure for their applications and workloads.
Through the engineering partnership approach, Liberty Mutual have been able to capitalise on the ever expanding and transformative list of use cases that serverless offers.
“Our collaboration to figure things out feels like more than a customer-vendor relationship,” Dave says. “It genuinely feels like AWS is part of our team.
