Make IoT a top investment priority; take advantage of the most disruptive game-changer for the insurance industry

This 1-day workshop will address why you should make the Internet of Things (IoT) a top investment priority, and how to take advantage of the most disruptive game-changer for the insurance industry at the moment.

This session will identify how IoT will change the face of mass insurance, and what propositions hold the most value to build clients’ loyalty and trust, and impact your ROI. It will outline how to
devise winning strategies to pilot or launch products and services that take advantage of the IoT connected insurance initiatives – connected homes, telematics, health and fitness monitors and
other wearables.

This workshop will also explain how you can practically gain the necessary, actionable insight from a constant flow of IoT data, how you can/should you use the data, and how you can identify and
minimize the negative impact of privacy and other risks that IoT undoubtedly will raise.

This workshop will also outline success and failures cases and what was learned from these – hence providing for some valuable insights of how and where you potentially may implement IoT
capabilities in your own business.
