The use of Data, Analytics, AI and ML in insurance is changing, are you?

The Headlines in numbers

  • Data, analytics, AI & ML can elevate your margin from between 5 - 40%.
  • 73% of data kept by companies is unused for data analytics (Gualtieri M, 2016), because most of its potential lies dormant, it is either locked up somewhere where it can’t be easily accessed, or it isn’t business ready.
  • Less than 5% of firms have a data and analytics strategy showing them how they will generate value from data and analytics.

The drivers 

Insurance firms must evolve to remain competitive in the industry and meet shifting customer demands by ensuring their ability to:

  • Provide more accurate pricing
  • Identifying and mitigating risks
  • Build a more efficient claims process 
  • Create more efficient operations / back office
  • Improve accuracy and ease of regulatory reporting

All these activities are driven by data, Analytics, AI, and ML. However, most firms are limited in their ability to do this by their legacy systems, as well as their data quality and lack of common data standards. 

The insurance industry is looking to develop new and relevant products, whether these are related to Covid, climate change, cybersecurity, or sustainability, and these all require new data sets for pricing and risk modelling. We expect to observe an increase in these insurance data models, allowing customers to integrate their own data to help them make decisions.

We’re seeing a move towards ‘open insurance,’ in which a customer can offer permission for the secure sharing of their financial information between organisations via application programming interfaces (APIs) – this open communication would allow for better, simpler, and more convenient services for the customer.

In summary, each firm needs a data strategy adopted by the whole business. The strategy will be different for each firm as it aligns to their business goals, budgets and capabilities.
