Heightened customer expectations, stagnant growth, limited product differentiation, increasing threat from new entrants, and the stringent regulatory environment are the key challenges faced by insurers today. In addition to these industry headwinds, insurers are feeling the pressure from investors and competitors to increase efficiency & effectiveness in processes and delivery. In order to grow in such a non-conducive environment, insurers are aligning their technology priorities around business agility and embracing digital technologies that can help them contain costs, shift from a product-centric play to a customer-centric play, and also defend their business from emerging disruptive models at the same time.

With the insurers shifting towards establishing efficient/agile operations and increasingly adopting digital technology themes, IT service providers are aggressively looking to tap the opportunity by tailoring their offerings with next-generation technologies, developing in-house solution frameworks & accelerators, partnering with buyers to co-innovate, setting up labs & Centers of Excellence (CoEs) to demonstrate & evaluate proof-of-concepts, and forming alliances with leading platform providers to strengthen their value propositions.
