Despite the fact that ROI probably is the dominant concern of insurance technology executives, there is considerable debate on the matter. Is it a science, an art, all or none of the above? What kinds of measurements and benchmarks make the most sense for an insurance business? What are the best practices in achieving technology return on investment?
Answers to these questions will be revealed at Insurance & Technology's Executive Summit 2002, "The New ROI: Balancing Vision & Value," November 3-6, the Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa (Phoenix). A roster of high-level speakers will address topics including doing more with less; outsourcing opportunities; ROI metrics; and IT/business alignment.
Additionally, the Executive Summit program will again feature the Special Interest Roundtable discussion groups, where participants can network and share war stories on a variety of hot topics including standards, systems integration, project management deliverables and mastering the insurance budget process.
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, Steel Card, Sun Microsystems and Tata Consulting Services (TCS).
Executive Summit 2002 will feature one-on-one sponsor meetings, as well as the Elite 8 Awards Dinner, recognizing the honorees of I&T's annual special report on the industry's most successful technology executives.
