Bottom Line in Insurance and Banking

The insurance and banking industries are leveraging technology to improve the quality of their analytical data, sorting through M&A impact, adjusting systems for ever-changing regulations, wrestling with legacy systems, struggling with data quality, and working to better engage customers.

As technology plays an ever-increasing role in the distribution of services and products, companies are constantly changing to gain a competitive advantage. Being risk-averse, however, often causes slower adoption new systems while older systems linger on.

Change can be rapid with the emergence of mobile and cloud computing. Old processes give way to every smart-phone becoming a customer kiosk. But as success is achieved, there is a trail of abandoned projects, patches to legacy systems, unexpected expense, and issues to be solved at a later date.

The resulting mixed environments lead to software licensing complexities; footprint confusion, increased run rate, under-utilized upgrade rights, and excessive maintenance spend.
