The constraints imposed by legacy systems are well understood in insurance. But it's time to rethink the landscape. Improving tools and shifting attitudes have opened up a new world of possibility.

It's easy to understand why many insurers are reluctant to attack their core systems. The modernization struggles of the last decade prove that the risks inherent in core system changes are high. Generating budget, balancing priorities, and fostering the culture change required to make new systems work effectively are all sizable hurdles.

But changing technologies and strategies are altering the landscape. Packaged solutions for core functions such as policy administration, claims, and underwriting are richer in functionality than ever before. New development methodologies are emerging. Domain-specific toolsets now allow insurers to automate, eliminate, or completely rethink traditional tasks. Most importantly, there is an evolution in how insurers are thinking about their core systems. Expectations are being reset. As a result, the competitive bar is rapidly being raised.

Join Celent for this high-energy workshop, designed to help IT and business strategists create the creative disruption necessary to fundamentally alter how insurance products are developed, implemented, and serviced. Whether you're a top-tier carrier, struggling with scope and complexity issues, or a mid-tier carrier looking to optimize your budget to create competitive advantages, this case-study filled day will help you organize and focus your efforts.

This event is free for Celent clients and the media. Non-clients can attend for a fee of USD $595 if they register by Friday, September 9. Please register by Thursday, October 27, 2011 to guarantee your space.
