Unleashing your data's real potential

Brought to you by:  Milliman

A specially curated webinar led by Milliman US-based data analytics specialists

The life insurance industry has entered a new era where data is a valuable asset. But life insurers have been slow to integrate data from different sources, and lag behind other industries in knowing their customers and understanding their behavior. Only a few have realised significant gains from their data efforts ,with many usually falling short of intended goals or straggled by the confusion of responsibilities between IT and actuaries. End users of data spend frustratingly significant amount of time waiting for data to be integrated, formatted, cleaned, audited, and transferred. During the webinar, Milliman experts we will use our successful data transformation experience to cover the importance of having a robust data management plan and how you can enable streamlining of various tangible use cases for actuarial teams as well as data scientists.

The webinar will feature:

  • Current state of data management in the industry and corresponding issues
  • What does a good future state look like
  • Define and deploy a clear data strategy to move from the current to future state
  • Discuss examples of use cases benefiting from the transformation:
    • Automation of experience analysis
    • Enabling quicker ad-hoc data analytics
    • Allowing easy integration with new data sources
