IT Matters

Big data, social media, cloud computing and now…?

Lloyd's Library, Lloyd's Building, One Lime Street, London EC3M 7HA,

Thursday 07 April 2016

12:15PM - 14:00PM


The challenges and opportunities for insurance businesses (irrespective of size) in this digital age are enormous, though businesses need to be fleet-footed to keep pace with changing technology and consumer behaviour. Meaning business strategies now must be seamlessly interwoven with ever-expanding digital and data strategies that address not only the web but also mobile, social and whatever innovation that lies in wait around the corner. 

Insurers, brokers, agents and underwriters are rolling-out an array of applications, platforms, technologies and digitised processes ~ so what’s in store for next year? And will the upcoming innovations boost business or bash it?  With the help of leading business technology commentators and senior market experts, this compelling forum sheds light onto some of the ‘newer-than-new’ developments in digital business advances that are in train for 2017 and beyond. 

Who Should Attend

This 75-minute fast paced, thought provoking briefing is tailored to the needs of C-Level, underwriters, brokers, IT, security, compliance, analysts and finance professionals in the Lloyd’s and London insurance market. If relevant to other colleagues within your company then please forward this e-mail to them. Thank you.
