  • What options exist for insurers looking to reduce their expenditure on outdated technologies?

  • Why has is it never been more important for insurers to address Heritage System issues such as failure to upgrade?

2) Creating an Interconnected Ecosystem to deliver a Successful Digital Insurance Strategy

12:00 - 13:00

Insurers today are being forced to innovate at a much faster pace than ever before. However, when it comes to joining up historically fragmented IT architecture, some insurers wrongly presume having a ‘cloud solution’ will be the silver bullet to break down these silos, when there are many other factors at play to improve and enhance data exchange.  

This interactive session will look at how you as an insurer can scale your business utilising a distributed interconnection platform, to deliver benefits ranging from leveraging new agile partners to greater real-time customer insights. 

  • Scaling your digital transformation using rich analytics
  • Joining up your network strategy to create more effective hybrid IT infrastructures
  • Meeting the demands of your users and building greater customer loyalty
  • Managing your risk efficiently whilst achieving greater data protection
  • Increasing your revenue and profitability through additional digital channels

3) Beyond the Byte: Stepping beyond Technology and Data to enhance your Organization

12:00 - 13:00

There has never been more interest and enthusiasm from boards to use data and technology to drive forward the effective delivery of strategy. Whilst this creates fantastic opportunities, generating real business benefits from a technical and operational platform can be difficult. This interactive session will engage participants in sharing perspectives and practical insights on the common challenges to using technology.

  • Using a hypothetical situation around an interactive health and wellbeing monitor, this session will look at the questions you need to ask before implementing new technology
  • This includes whether AI, for instance, should mimic humans or suggest more rational paths
  • That we are thinking about these things and planning for how to assist customers as we enter POC phase and ultimately transition into a BAU environment
  • Modelling different environments and thinking about a full range of potential scenarios no matter how "wild" they might seem
