What will the model insurance company look like five years from now? Ten years from now? How will insurance customers change? How will a global insurance practice operate? The pace of technology innovation within the insurance industry is significant, with potentially game-changing technologies such as digital, cloud, big data and telematics gaining prominence. But a carrier’s ability to implement and capitalize on these new technologies is only as good as its ability to fully integrate them with core applications and business processes.

Attend this webinar to learn how to:

  • Rethink build vs. buy – new options for core modernization.
  • Understand the impact of omnichannel distribution and engagement.
  • Consider new approaches to infrastructure – assessing the opportunities and potential risks.
  • Factor in IT consumerization and customer experience considerations – going beyond the buzzwords.

Join this forward-looking webinar to get a peek into the future of insurance operations and what the implications of these trends could be for your organization. The session will be led by Insurance & Technology Editorial Director Kathy Burger, with panelists Jamie Macgregor, London-based Senior Vice President of Celent’s Insurance practice, and Ross Orrett, Global Head of Insurance Industry Innovation and Development at SAP.
