About Aegon Technologies

Aegon is a multinational provider of life insurance, pensions, and asset management based in The Hague, Netherlands. It is partnered with IT company Aegon Global Technologies (AGT).

Challenges

  • To provide the back-end support Aegon needed, AGT needed consistent configuration across heterogeneous servers. This allowed engineers to better use their time exploring new technologies for company success.

Solution

  • Aegon used Puppet Enterprise to view, track, and audit changes in their development environment from a central location, which enabled more consistent infrastructure, high scalability, and improved software quality.

Results

  • Full control and visibility of infrastructure
  • Reduced configuration drift
  • Expedited customer response time

“Puppet gives us better speed. We are now able to deploy and manage our configuration very fast and we have to spend less time configuring and maintaining the state of our service.”

Ronald Horst, Automation Specialist, Aegon Global Technologies team
