Context and Challenges

AXA is a multinational insurance firm that engages in global insurance, investment management and other financial services. It is a conglomerate of independently run businesses, operated according to the laws and regulations of many different countries.

AXA’s goal was to build a comprehensive, centralized digital archiving service that would be mutually shared among all AXA subsidiaries worldwide. This service would need to deliver legal proof of evidence of archived data, ensure compliance with regulations and guidelines and provide day-to-day records management for all business units within the Group, including:

  • Administration archiving – accounting, invoicing, tax statements…
  • Legally-binding documents – contracts, sales proposals…
  • Application decommissioning
  • On-demand records management.

Various interfaces and several connectors were installed to automate data transfer from business applications. Today, more than 120 applications use the archiving service.
