As per a 2017 Gartner report, Policy Administration System (PAS) implementation & legacy modernization are few of the key areas that Insurance companies are focusing to improve customer experience and to enable self-service for the policyholders. Insurers are also increasingly leaning towards configurable, rule-based, commercial-of-the-shelf (COTS) packaged solutions like Guidewire InsuranceSuite versus building in house applications. This reduces the implementation costs and accelerates time-to-market. Depending on the number of LOBs, products, and geographies in scope, carriers could save anywhere from 6 months to 2 years with the packaged implementations. In typical PAS projects, software testing constitutes around 25-30% of overall…

During 2017, we saw headlines of RPA projects failing by 30 - 50% and a good insight by HfS Research & Hexaware Technologies (The State of Automation & AI) showing some of the probable causes. My own experience is based on conversations with COOs on their RPA strategy and I am invariably greeted with ‘Yes, we have that under control and everything is going on well’. My next question goes along the line of ‘So your operational budgets must have reduced significantly’ which causes a pregnant silence followed by ‘… Well, no it has probably gone up … but it’s…

On-boarding Artificial Intelligence - A Reality Check Recently, iPhone 8 was launched with much fanfare. There were advertisements all over the places during this festival season announcing its arrival and availability. Apple is emphasizing on 4 differentiators in the new iPhone, namely All-glass design, Advanced cameras, Wireless charging and A11 bionic chips. Coming from the stable of Apple, these are all bleeding edge innovations. While the first 3 are straightforward, what caught my attention was the coming-up the age of mobile computing chips as a major differentiator. On further diving-in, I somehow feel it is evident that this product will…

Few businesses stand to gain as much from automation as insurance companies, but few businesses encounter as many challenges when they try to implement it.

Three observations: 1. A few months ago, there was a curious article doing the rounds: Programmers who use spaces to indent their code are paid 9% more compared to programmers who use tabs. This result held, even after controlling various factors, such as: the programming language, numbers of years of experience, country etc. Now, let’s observe what is going on here.   2. Anecdotally, we have all seen programmers who are orders of magnitude more effective than others in achieving their tasks; this sets up a virtuous positive feedback loop, where the effective programmers are recognized and rewarded, and that,…

Let's try to understand it with a Bitcoin's stack that serves as the model and template for all other Blockchains. At the bottom of the stack is the Bitcoin Blockchain: a database of all transactions, grouped into 'blocks' and replicated across thousands of 'nodes'. It is monolithic and scale sensitive (there is only one), and it becomes more reliable and robust as the number of nodes…
