About the session – “How to Bake an Insurance Analytics Cake

Delivering trusted reporting and analytics is a monumental challenge faced by Insurance CIOs and CFOs. Vendors will not hesitate to promise that the solution lies in their specific tool, product or methodology; discerning the facts from noise is further complicated by introducing novel concepts such as visualization, Big Data, cloud and data science.

But technology, no matter how impressive, will never independently yield the expected level of BI success. A major insurance carrier achieved their success by focusing on organizational factors such as business value, adoption, executive sponsorship, information management and frequent, iterative deployment. The result was an enterprise platform employed throughout the company in both operational and executive decision making.

The panel will discuss their experience in maturing analytic capability. Whether your company is deeply entrenched in analytics or new to the challenge, whether you are providing insight to actuaries, executives, agents or adjusters, this recipe can be reproduced in your organization.
