It’s Insurance Technology Show Time!

Yes, it’s insurance data and technology show season again. Below are some highlights of recent and upcoming events:


I missed the ACORD annual conference this year but am looking forward to the fall event. I recently had a sneak preview into the exciting ACORD Open Innovation program in November from Malou August of ACORD; am looking forward to participating! Stay tuned — you won’t want to miss it!


I spoke at the largest ever Insurance Data Management Association annual in Philadelphia last month. Big Data, Internet of Things and Self Service are creating Tsunamis of change for insurers. Tom Barger, of Zurich NA and I co –presented on data management and governance challenges and opportunities. Tom shared some real life insights on how claims professionals are integrating and leveraging big data and analytics. See our joint presentation on Slide Share.


I met with a number of insurance companies at our annual SAPPHIRE user conference last week, customers talking with them about their challenges – largely user adoption, funding, proving business value and getting continuous funding for programs. The show included an SAP insurance industry booth where customers could see complete set of insurance solutions, as well as many industry solutions our SAP partners. I also had a chance to catch up with Kimberly Harris-Ferrante from Gartner and compare notes on what we’ve been hearing from insurers. You can view replays at
