Distinguished Programs, a New York-based program manager, has migrated its on-premise Duck Creek Technologies (Boston) solution to the vendor’s cloud-based, SaaS OnDemand option. Duck Creek says that OnDemand enables Distinguished Programs to achieve business agility, increase automation and establish a foundation for growth with an evergreen technology solution.
A Duck Creek customer for several years, Distinguished Programs worked with the vendor and EY (London) to move to the cloud-based infrastructure. Distinguished Programs has successfully built out its Primary Hospitality Package (Property and GL) as well as Auto for all 50 states, including MA, in Duck Creek OnDemand so far, according to the vendor. Distinguished Programs also plans to have incremental releases for the next two years to transition all on-prem programs as well as those on other legacy platforms to the cloud.
“For years, we have partnered well with Distinguished Programs using our on-prem software,” says Eugene Van Biert, Chief Operating Officer at Duck Creek Technologies, “and we get excited when our clients recognize the value that can be created when transitioning to our cloud-based infrastructure. Distinguished Programs has demonstrated their commitment to innovation by investing in Duck Creek’s market-leading SaaS capabilities.”
Speed-to-Market and Improved Maintainability
“The move to Duck Creek OnDemand directly supports our growth goals here at Distinguished,” says Erica Stoller, CIO, Distinguished Programs. “We are migrating all existing products to the cloud solution, as well as new products and programs. The Duck Creek solution allows for the speed-to-market we are looking for, along with improved maintainability.”
“This is an important milestone for Distinguished Programs and Duck Creek Technologies,” comments Laura Ford, EY Principal, FSO Americas Alliance and Platform Leader. “Innovative progress is critical for our industry and the more we can bring game-changing technology solutions to modernize the practices and optimize customer experience, the entire ecosystem can scale more effectively.”
