Business & Technology Transformation: The role of a CIO and COO within Insurance

About this event

Are you interested to know more about the challenges and key information that Insurance CIO’s and COO’s need to know in order to prioritise and drive change for efficiency and cost reduction? Join Delta Capita along with a panel of senior executives where they will be discussing a range of critical issues in our upcoming webinar on 14th October.

Some of the key takeaways:

  • To understand how insurers align their internal transformation strategy with Lloyds market vision.
  • To discuss how insurers assess the priority of specific initiatives (for example customer experience, call centre management, demise legacy technology) to deliver business value during periods of reduced budget expenditure.
  • To find out if the impact of the covid crisis drives any of this decision making.
  • Discover how a big brand market participant develop and execute a change programme to maintain market share and client satisfaction using new insuretech solutions.
  • And finally, how can further value be unlocked through cost mutualisation, technology and managed services 2.0?
