This month we polled 160 P&C leaders during the IASA insurance conference to ask who had access to consistent, credible information across actuarial, underwriting, finance, and claims functions for all their business information. Not surprisingly, an overwhelming number of respondents told us that they simply didn’t have consistent information.
In this recorded webinar, you'll hear from two organizations that do: Gore Mutual Insurance and State Volunteer Mutual Insurance Company (SVMIC). By leveraging pre-built P&C content, they are able to pull together a single view of business data while empowering business users to answer questions at all levels of summary and detail on their own.
Jamie McDougall, vice president, Business Intelligence and Analytics at the Cambridge, Ontario-based Gore, explain how his mixed personal and commercial lines insurer liberated Duck Creek and historical data to deliver seven-figure business impact and strategic value that competes with larger insurers. Tom Werner, director of Actuarial Services at the Brentwood, TN-based SVMIC, will frame how this enabled the company's monoline (medical malpractice) insurer to access data from home-grown core systems and address the full needs of this niche business - all in less than seven months.
As vice president, Business Intelligence and Analytics, Jamie McDougall is responsible for advancing the business intelligence, analytics, and actuarial capability at Gore Mutual Insurance. Jamie’s prior experience as vice president, Claims and vice president, Personal Insurance is key to his current role, which involves leadership in the implementation of major data and analytics systems transformations across all lines of business.
