Insurance Roundtable: Facing new industry challenges using Analytics

Combating Claims Fraud to deal with regulations and to respond to competitive pressure

17th  Oct. 2019 | 09:00 - 12:15 | Sheraton Hotel Bucharest


Q-East and SAS, the leader in Analytics & AI, are organizing jointly an Insurance Roundtable with the aim to increase awareness of management of insurance companies on developments that matters for them, so to stay competitive in a globalized market.

Insurance companies are now faced with a new complex, demanding and competitive environment. Preparing and making the right decisions, coupled with flexibility and speed of adjustment, are key factors in gaining an edge over competition.

Challenges such as the need to operate in a cost-effective and efficient way, compliance with new and existing regulations and standards, reducing financial and reputational impact from fraudulent activity, responding to competitive pressures and exploiting growth opportunities put significant pressure on companies in the industry.

To tackle these issues effectively, insurance companies are now required to embrace Analytics in order to continue to survive in this difficult economic environment and to gain a competitive advantage.

Why attend

  • We will focus on the topic of Claims Fraud within the insurance industry, leveraging our experience in multiple regions and markets around the world.
