Business Success Through Insurance Data Mastery: A Whitepaper from Information Builders

Feb. 2009 — There’s an old military dictum that says, “Amateurs talk tactics, but professionals talk logistics.”

That’s true for insurance companies, too — even though the logistical efforts and supply chain are mostly informational. You still have to collect information, consolidate it, manage its quality, process it, and distribute it. Your data processes are among the most critical in your company, because every important activity — managing the business at high and low levels, setting strategy, and governance, among others — depends on data as its foundation. It’s not enough to work with your data. To be competitive, you must master it.

This white paper explores how insurance data mastery drives business success. It identifies the critical challenges and recommends a solution.
