  • Enabling growth remained a top corporate priority for CIOs.
  • Insurers planned significant enhancements in 2022 for their core systems, customer experience, and data/analytics solutions.
  • An encouraging 30% to 40% of IT resources were allocated to implementing new systems and to transformation and innovation.
  • Preference for cloud deployments, innovation as a key criterion for IT investments, and selective use of insurtech were all significant trends.
