ROI: Not an End in Itself

An overview of the 2002 Insurance & Technology Executive Summit.

Despite the continuing pullback in IT spending, indications are that many insurance companies are ready to start making new investments in IT, especially on technologies that can customer service, increase delivery speeds and cut costs. For example, recent Celent Communications research predicts that overall IT spending in the insurance industry will grow by seven percent in 2002 to $18 billion, and will continue to grow at the same rate for the next two years.

But how do you make sure those investments deliver? Insights into how to get tech ROI while boosting competitiveness will be presented at Insurance & Technology's Executive Summit 2002, "The New ROI: Balancing Vision & Value," Nov. 3-6, 2002, at the Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa in Phoenix.

Now in its fourth year, I&T's Executive Summit is a one-of-a-kind, invitation-only event that brings together insurance tech decision-makers from all lines of business and leading solutions providers for three days of networking, education and resource development.

Confirmed sponsors of this year's event include Blaze Advisor from HNC, Cap Gemini Ernst & Young, CGI, CheckFree iSolutions, CSC, Deloitte Consulting, Navisys, SAP, Selectica, SeeBeyond, Sherwood International, SOLCORP, Sun Microsystems and Tata Consulting Services (TCS).

In addition to a conference program that will examine strategies for reconciling the drive for ROI with the quest for innovation, Executive Summit 2002 will feature one-on-one sponsor meetings and the Elite 8 Awards Dinner.
