Economical Insurance, one of Canada’s leading property and casualty insurance companies, will use the Cloud to help create new efficiencies and accelerate the output of digital experiences for brokers and customers.

The firm selected IBM because, according to its press release, “offers choice and flexibility to help the company securely bridge their data to the cloud.”
