AXA, Global Programs Director

There’s a famous quote you’ll see emblazoned on shirts worn by marathon runners: “You don’t have to run fast; you just have to go.” As he helps lead AXA’s transformation to the cloud, Ash Shah, global programs director for AXA Group Operations, would like to do both. For applications that can benefit from “lift and shift,” he’s helping the company move fast to demonstrate the economic benefits of moving to the cloud. But for where cloud matters most in AXA’s journey to become an innovative, customer-centric, technology-led insurer, Ash is quick to point out that AXA is running a marathon. That more meaningful transformation requires more than technology – it requires upskilling your organization, introducing agile methodologies and new target operating models, and focusing constantly on change management, stakeholder engagement, and team motivation to keep the journey going. In a fireside chat moderated by Tony Jacob, global business development lead for insurance at Amazon Web Services, Ash will share his tips for successful cloud transformations, drawing from his experience that targets more than 30,000 servers and 7,000 applications across 62 countries. Ash believes AXA’s experience is already pointing to the cloud becoming part of the core fabric of IT service delivery and how developers will operate in the foreseeable future.
