This year, Celent and Asia Insurance Review (AIR) hosted the 6th Asia Insurance Technology Awards (AITAs) at AIR's CIO Technology Summit at Mandarin Orchard Hotel in Singapore. For those of you that aren't familiar with the awards, the AITAs recognize excellence and innovation in the use of technology within the insurance industry in the Asia-Pacific region.
We received over 40 nominations from Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan and the U.K as well as the Asia Pacific divisions of global insurers.
