June 16, 2022

Modern_izing_Insurance
Data has always been an important asset in the insurance industry, which is largely built on algorithms and financial models. Today, that is truer than ever before. Data can be analyzed to provide insurers with deeper business insights and the ability to target the right customers through the right channels with the right offerings in the right sequence. It also has opened the door to a growing group of digital natives and insurtechs that bring innovative ideas and solutions to help accelerate and improve the customer journey. Today, the advent of artificial intelligence (AI) is increasing the importance of data across the industry. AI is widely recognized for its potential to bring greater efficiency and innovation to the entire insurance value chain, from customer acquisition to claims processing, and for all stakeholders, including customers, agents and employees. However, effective AI depends on current, accurate and relevant data. AI is key to competitiveness, and data is key to AI.
