As part of the initiative to transform its global IT infrastructure, Allianz intends to form a partnership with an external provider to operate the global data center infrastructure. After a comprehensive tender process, Allianz has now decided to start exclusive contract negotiations with IBM to form the global partnership. Allianz expects that negotiations will be finished within 2013.
 

With this initiative, Allianz aims to consolidate its data centers globally and to reduce the number of data centers from 140 to 6. The emerging data center landscape will be connected by an integrated Allianz Global Network which currently is in the process of being rolled out. Both, data centers and network together will form an Allianz Private Cloud which creates several benefits, among them the advantages of running a standardized and harmonized technology. Allianz expects to reach the full mode of future IT operation by end of 2017.
