Core System & InsurTech Fusion: Catalyst for Innovation & Transformation”

Michael Connor

Michael Connor, CEO, Silicon Valley Insurance Accelerator

InsurTech is a term frequently used to describe new technology and services that are accelerating development of a digital generation of insurance. However, real practitioners know that InsurTech is more than technology, it's a culture and a mindset. Those forces are creating a new, highly transparent, easy to use generation of connected insurance services. These services predict, prevent, mitigate, and recover from risk by leveraging modular, interoperable, Cloud / SaaS based platforms and solutions, big data, analytics and AI to interact with customers, Internet of Things and mobile devices.The result radically increases the effectiveness of core insurance processes and systems.

At present, there are over 140 InsurTech companies in Silicon Valley. This community is both decomposing and extending the Insurance Value Chain, enabling new products and companies to be launched quickly and effectively.

In this interactive session, Mike will:

  • Provide an overview of InsurTech capabilities and trends;
  • Describe the culture driving InsurTech;
  • Demonstrate how InsurTech will ultimately become the DNA of next generation insurance.
