State Auto is self-described as a “21st-century technology and transformation company” not a traditional insurance company. An important part of their company culture is to be at the forefront of innovation. They wanted to leverage cloud technologies in conjunction with a more mature DevOps program to push their organization to the cutting edge.
RightBrain engaged with State Auto in two phases for this project. Initially, RightBrain conducted an Ignite assessment; the first of three levels of RightBrain’s Cloud Development Life Cycle (CDLC®). During the Ignite phase, State Auto’s goals, challenges, and current solutions were uncovered by RightBrain. The State Auto team and RightBrain then developed a vision and roadmap for moving their people, processes, and technologies forward.
The second phase of the project, RightBrain conducted the next phase of its CDLC®, called Innovate. The Innovate portion of the project was centered on implementing the vision and roadmap laid out in the Ignite assessment. The RightBrain team helped create, teach, and rollout programs to enable State Auto to leverage the newest technologies and DevOps practices in their efforts to continue being an industry leader.
