Executives come together to highlight the importance of big data
Insurance technology executives from AIG, Chubb, Travelers, and several other insurance organizations recently came together during a seminar in Philadelphia to highlight the importance of big data in data management. Big data has become quite important within the insurance industry, with executives suggesting that there is no other industry that can benefit more from the use of big data. During the seminar, executives suggested that prioritizing big data may be able to help insurers better manage the risks associated with certain markets.
Big data may determine the future of the insurance industry
Big data may allow insurers to better balance their obligations and customer interests in a competitive fashion. As technology becomes more advanced, people are beginning to rely on it more heavily in their daily lives. This is especially apparent in the mobile field, where smartphones and tablets are used by consumers frequently on a daily basis. As people use these mobile devices, they provide important information that can be used by insurance companies to monitor trends and better understand consumer behavior.
Insurers are having trouble connecting with consumers that are reliant on technology
The insurance industry has been showing more interest in big data, but has only set big data as a priority in the past few years. Embracing technology has been a slow process for many insurance companies, especially when it comes to the technology regularly used by consumers. Engaging consumers through mobile channels has proven to be a difficult process. Consumers tend to have a high standard when it comes to mobile services because of the experiences they have had with other industries that have more experience in the mobile space.
Big data could help insurers balance risk more effectively
Big data is expected to play a major role in determining the future of the insurance industry. Without focusing on big data, insurers may be losing out on opportunities to understand consumers and certain risks that exist in both the digital and physical world. Big data may also help insurers transition toward a future where the Internet and society and intrinsically linked.
