AWS infrastructure landscape – main principles

AWS native Cloud capabilities Security by design Accenture – PSA Build Infrastructure right sizing
Accenture best practices and tools Highly available infrastructure Integration with PSA ecosystem Cost control & optimization
EGVO principles re-used 24/7 L3 operations Possible reversibility

The below slides present the orientations and assumptions that has been taken for the initial design in order to
contribute to the business case
Although it has been done by following best practices and by taking into account PSA main expectations and
concerns, several workstreams are already identified to fully assess security compliance & technical feasibility

AWS infrastructure landscape – location & account
➢ Hosting of Guidewire application in AWS Ireland with the use of AWS Edge location in Europe to
improve performance
➢ Accenture holds the AWS subscription for PSA. Guidewire infrastructure is fully managed by
Accenture and can be viewed “as a service” by PSA.

AWS infrastructure landscape – next steps
➢ Launch several workstream to review & validation assumptions:
➢ Pre-requisite 1 : Receive from business teams the users & customers experiences & paths
➢ Pre-requisite 2 : Complete the Business & IT risk assessment

➢ Workstream 1 : Authentication & federation (AWS Cognito vs PSA tools, MFA etc.)
➢ Workstream 2 : AWS-PSA-3rd parties integrations (VPN, media exchange etc.)
➢ Workstream 3 : Continuity & resilience (DRP, Cyber attack prevention & resolution)
➢ Workstream 4 : Reversibility (AWS native services, Accenture tools & operations)
