With its headquarters in Munich and some 8,000 employees around the world, Allianz Technology supports Allianz Group in preserving its leading market position by realizing synergies and cultivating innovation.

Allianz companies rely on Allianz Technology to implement critical projects and deliver key services that support the business strategy set by Allianz Group. In close partnership with these internal customers, Allianz Technology supports their operational needs through IT infrastructure, applications and business services. 


The installation of a global connected infrastructure underpins the digital program of the Group. The Allianz Global Network project provides modern, cost-effective telecommunications solutions, which serve as the basis for a robust, cloud-based strategy. The project for consolidating data centers will reduce Group infrastructure costs while improving services and keeping IT resilient to disasters. The Allianz Virtual Client project provides a flexible, cost-efficient and data-secured personal computing solution for Allianz employees.


The application architecture is organized into the following levels:

  • Solutions for mobile devices and the Internet, enabling the use of digital channels.
  • Integrated core insurance applications help streamline the product portfolio and support interdisciplinary product sales through multiple channels.
  • Corporate function platforms ensure financial transparency and efficiency according to compliance requirements.
  • Analytical platforms provide global Business Intelligence (BI) and analytics solutions to evaluate, track and report existing data.

Business Services

Group synergies and cost savings are realized through:

  • Optimized transactional processes and expert services in Finance and Human Resources
  • A reduction of external spending via Global Sourcing & Procurement and Corporate Real Estate & Services.
  • Allianz Consulting, through the OPEX quality management approach, focuses on management consulting. Its more than 150 experts are at the ready, offering best-in-class, end-to-end consulting services.

Commitment to protecting the environment 

Environment and climate protection are embedded into the core business of Allianz Technology and its internal processes. Within Germany, Allianz Technology sources energy exclusively from hydropower. Allianz Technology Global Sourcing & Procurement plays a key role in promoting environmental standards with current and potential suppliers. In practice, this means ensuring that all Allianz suppliers abide by the company's environmental, social and governance standards, as outlined in the Allianz Code of Conduct and Purchasing Principles.
