The Path to Customer-Centricity

Becoming a customer-focused organization is the theme of Insurance & Technology's Executive Summit 2001.

If it were only a matter of money, becoming a customer-centric organization would be easy. Just consider: Spending on e-business technology per insurance company will rise on average by 89 percent over the next three years, and this investment will focus primarily on customer-facing and other high-value initiatives, according to recent research from PricewaterhouseCoopers/The Economist Intelligence Unit.

But it also takes management vision, IT excellence and results-oriented business strategies. One way for executives to gain the insights, contacts and information that will help insurance technology decision-makers lead their organizations into the new customer-centric era is by attending the Insurance & Technology Executive Summit 2001—"Putting Customers First, and Profiting from It"—Dec. 9-12, 2001, at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel, Phoenix.

Attendees at this year's Insurance & Technology Executive Summit will benefit from three days of networking, education and entertainment for top industry executives—CIOs, CTOs, e-commerce directors, presidents, line-of-business heads and other technology decision-makers—who want to stay ahead of the critical issues shaping their industry.

Highlights of this exclusive invitation-only event, now in its third year, include: presentations on topics such as The E-Financial Services Customer and Redefining the CIO's Role in a Customer-Centric World; insight into the most business-critical IT issues, including CRM, e-commerce and wireless/mobile; and special interest roundtables on a range of hot topics including Technology ROI and E-Business Strategies that Work.

Additionally, the annual Elite 8 2001 Awards Dinner (Monday, Dec. 10) recognizes the honorees of I&T's annual special issue that highlights visionary insurance technology leaders. Plus, one-to-one meetings with solutions providers give attendees the opportunity to get advance insight into the hottest insurance-focused technology initiatives. Confirmed sponsors at press time include Sun Microsystems, SilverStream Software, Deloitte Consulting, CheckFree, Selectica, Trilogy, Sherwood International and IONA Technologies.
