Reduced refresh times from 3 days to just 6 hours

Accelerated delivery velocity

Gained more DBA resources by eliminating manual work

Executive Summary

Midgal Insurance Company’s QA and dev teams use the Accelario DataOps Platform to self-provision and refresh their testing and staging environments with a continuous stream of production-like data, without needing any support from their DevOps teams. Accelario’s fully automated, self-service portal eliminated their data bottleneck and freed up their DBA from the tedious manual work required to provision testing data. 

This enabled Migdal Insurance to save valuable time and give their dev teams full data flexibility and provisioning independence. These powerful data provisioning capabilities support high levels of flexibility and innovation, helping Migdal Insurance to further its mission of providing reliable, state-of-the-art insurance services and industry-leading customer support.

The Challenge

Migdal Insurance leverages the latest technologies to safeguard its leading position within the highly competitive Israeli insurance industry. Using their robust technological prowess, Midgal Insurance works towards improving operational efficiencies, developing various digital tools for its agents and expanding self-service options for customer and distribution.

However, keeping up with demanding release schedules requires the constant provision and refreshing of production-like data for testing and staging purposes. With between 300-400 databases to maintain, DBAs were constantly receiving requests for new environments provisioned with production-like data including specific subsets within a database.

Additionally, environments required constant data refreshing to ensure that testing and development were done accurately and with all of the required data types. Migdal Insurance’s DBAs were spending all their time refreshing data, becoming a bottleneck that significantly slowed down development.

The Solution

Migdal Insurance worked with Accelario’s Continuous DataOps Platform to build a self-service data provisioning portal for their QA and dev teams. With Accelario’s solution, Migdal Insurance teams were able to quickly create their own environments and benefit from on-demand refresh of production-like data to ensure high-quality testing and development. Migdal Insurance teams were also able to refresh just specific subsets, enabling data independence and efficient access without relying on slow, manual copying and refreshing processes. The solution’s success translated to implementation across their entire Midgal Insurance IT site.

The Results

With Accelario’s solution, Migdal Insurance eliminated the DBA bottleneck and provided their dev and testing teams with full data access without DBA assistance. Teams were able to access a simple-to-use self-service portal that allowed them to easily and quickly create environments and refresh their data, enabling the following benefits: 

Significant reduction of refresh time from 3 days to 6 hours 

Accelerated delivery velocity 

Gain more DBA resources by eliminating manual work involved in data copy and refresh

Increased delivery quality by using only fresh, production-like data
