Tech Talks: What Now for the Digital Strategy?

15:00 - 15:30

Over the last year, what were once 5 year digital strategies were condensed into a matter of months as companies reacted to the limitations of the pandemic.  The pace of change, already fast, has got faster!  We will be asking our panel:

  • What does this mean for digital strategies moving forward?
  • Did digital tools already in place stand up to the test of Covid?  How would you asses digitalisation’s role throughout the pandemic?
  • Do future strategies need to consider the large-scale events like the pandemic or are they immune to volatile markets and external chaos?
  • How did your company look to utilise its digital strategy over the last year?  Was it a case of starting from scratch or tweaking what was already in place?

Industry Insight: Up in the Clouds
Hear from insurers wider support system as they bring new services and solutions to businesses

12:00 - 12:30

A chance for the insurance sector to hear from the wider ecosystem and what tools and solutions are available out there that will support businesses to better their service, efficiency and product development.

The transformative potential of cloud computing is vital to the technological innovation debate for the insurance industry. Much of the discussion is centred on cloud computing's ability to reduce IT cost but the business benefits emanating from cloud run far deeper.

  • Reusing IT resources more efficiently.
  • Application commitment - the up-front purchase or rented options.
  • Understanding and pinpointing where cloud computing can reduce infrastructure costs.
  • Open up new opportunities, create and deliver products and services, reach and interact with customers, manage their value chains, manage your risk, and generate revenues.
  • Build a more flexible, nimble and customer-centric business model through the cloud.  How is the achieved and where are the major differences?

Unlock new and exciting innovation yet to be identified.  With the expected boom in cloud services for insurance, understanding the technical vitals and business application is essential to be at the forefront of this growth.
