After Italian Pilot, HDI-Gerling Looks to Deploy SAS Data Quality Globally

The company wants to create a standard for data management and reporting among its operations in 28 countries.

German insurance group HDI-Gerling is planning to use SAS Data Quality at a corporate level to communicate enterprisewide data drawn from diverse systems and countries, according to a release.

The insurance group piloted the platform in its Milan office. It has offices in 27 other countries.

HDI-Gerling wants to use SAS (Cary, N.C.) to classify and manage customer data more efficiently and create a company standard for data management and reporting, according to the statement.

“With better data quality, we get more valuable business information,” Giorgio Benedetti, head of controlling and IT at HDI-Gerling Italia, says in a statement. “Our risk analysis can share client information in a structured and systematic way. For example, someone on the liability insurance team can analyze customer data for other business opportunities, such as fire or theft. In addition to data management and reporting, SAS helps identify up-selling and cross-selling opportunities to existing customers for HDI-Gerling.”
