When the volume, velocity and variety of your data exceed your storage or computing capacity, you've got big data. It can create some challenges, sure – but it creates even bigger opportunities for insurers.
Seizing those opportunities requires taming that tidal wave of data. And thanks to emerging high-performance analytics technologies, insurers can gain valuable insights from big data in less time than ever before.
In this webinar, we'll explore how high-performance analytics is changing the insurance industry as carriers incorporate telematics, unstructured information and other types of big data into their decision making processes.
- New approaches to building models and preparing data for analysis.
- The value of rapid iterations and expansive data analysis.
- Applications in insurance, including risk-centric analytics, customer-centric analytics and finance-centric analytics.
