LTIMindtree teams up with Aflac Incorporated to harness AWS cloud


In a defining move towards a digital evolution, global tech consultant and digital solutions firm, LTIMindtree, is collaborating with Aflac Incorporated, the US’s preeminent provider of supplemental insurance and a celebrated Fortune 500 entity. Their aim? To invigorate Aflac’s digital capabilities using the robust cloud-native services of Amazon Web Services (AWS).

The cornerstone of this collaboration is LTIMindtree’s commitment to overhauling Aflac’s on-site applications, which currently run on an aging, unsupported platform. By utilizing AWS’s potent tools—including Amazon CloudFront, AWS Key Management Service (KMS), AWS Secrets Manager, and Lambda—LTIMindtree is looking to create an architecture resonating with the AWS Well-Architected Framework. This strategic alignment ensures not just compliance but also enhanced security and reliability.

An approach that’s agile, secure, and timely. With LTIMindtree’s vast cloud migration acumen and AWS’s unparalleled flexibility and scalability, we’re poised to navigate and rise above operational and competitive hurdles.”
