Celent Says

Creative Disruption - The Votes Are In

Mike Fitzgerald
Insurance Experts' Forum, October 18, 2011

In preparation for the Creative Disruption event in Boston on November 3, Celent surveyed insurers to gather their views on using creative disruption to bring sustained, fundamental change to their organizations. By creative disruption, we mean implementing the initiatives that are required to fundamentally alter how insurance products are developed, implemented and serviced.

With over 90 insurer responses, the two areas with the highest potential value for disruption are customer service experience and product design. These processes will be explored in depth at the event, as insurance IT executives present how their organizations used tools such as modern policy administration systems and agile development to deliver materially different results to their business. If you cannot attend, you're welcome to follow the event on Twitter at #creativedisruption.
