Unlike other data events, this meeting will focus on the challenges faced by the insurance industry specifically.

According to SAS over one in 10 insurance claims is fraudulent. Opportunities for subrogation get lost in all the data. Insurers overpay when trying to settle claims too quickly. The insurance industry has been struggling with the volumes of data they manage daily, and now finally has the conversation opened up for insurers to work together and discuss best practices.

Next month in London, Big Data IQ is holding the annual Big Data and Analytics for Insurance summit from the 26th – 28th of January.
