Ardonagh Advisory integrates Mendix to speed up digital projects
Tue, 19th Mar 2024

Ardonagh Advisory, the broking and advisory platform of The Ardonagh Group, is embracing the power of digital transformation by integrating Mendix, a Siemens business. This strategic decision aims to improve the platform's ability to deliver new digital projects and refine the customer experience.

Ardonagh Advisory's adoption of the low-code platform is intended to enhance its operational efficiency and agility. According to Mendix, integrating low-code into their software development processes will "deliver new projects six times faster," streamlining the creation of new digital products for customers.

The implementation of low-code will enable Ardonagh Advisory to construct new digital products that will be accessible to customers online 24/7, offering a parallel to their traditional insurance model. Beyond providing service availability, adopting low-code will reportedly ensure the cost-effective and fast delivery of new capabilities, allegedly six times quicker than traditional development. This could see some project delivery times reduced from six months to just 30 days.

Additionally, the platform is set to be utilised to automate administrative-heavy tasks, freeing up employees to enhance customer interaction and service provision.

Tom Clark, the Chief Technology Officer at Ardonagh Advisory, expressed enthusiasm about adopting Mendix as the preferred solution for their new platform development. He emphasised the platform's scalability, flexibility, and resilience qualities, highlighting Mendix as the optimal choice to support its transformational goals. Clark expressed excitement about providing customers with an enhanced digital experience enabled by cutting-edge innovation, positioning Mendix as the market leader in this regard.

Clark said, "As we are creating a new, scalable, flexible, and resilient platform, we looked for the best solution to achieve support for this transformation, and Mendix was a clear winner. We are excited to be offering our customers a new smooth digital experience underpinned by best-in-class innovation available in the market."

Security within the insurance industry is crucial. Mendix's low-code platform comes equipped with in-built governance and guardrails for low-code app development, reinforcing the assurance that digital transformation can be a secure, agile, and holistic initiative.

Nick Ford, the Chief Growth Officer at Mendix, underscores the transformative capabilities of Mendix's low-code platform for organisations like Ardonagh Advisory. He said, "Mendix's low-code platform allows organisations like Ardonagh Advisory to undergo complex digital transformations, offering robust yet flexible solutions tailored to their needs."

Industry analysts like Gartner and Forrester Research validate Mendix's capacity to enhance software development and handle the complexities of delivering transformational business impact. As Ardonagh Advisory embraces the digital transformation era by integrating Mendix's low-code, it strengthens its strategic position in the insurance industry, fostering resilience and adaptability to meet changing customer needs within a competitive environment.
