Blockchain Insurance Use Cases Discussed at ITA LIVE

Staff Writer | January 30, 2017

As with any promising, new technology, distributed ledger technology (DLT), also known as blockchain, is often discussed in terms of being a proverbial “hammer” for many solutions, which in turn look like nails. The fact is that many potential applications under review could be built on a number of different platforms.

Mike Fitzgerald, senior analyst with Celent, will discuss blockchain use cases in a session at ITA LIVE. Launchpad: Time to Soar is the theme for the third annual conference, which will be held March 12-14 at the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Pompano Beach Resort & Spa.

How does an insurer identify those solutions that are most suitable for DLT and that have the greatest potential for return? Fitzgerald reports this session will provide insurers with an evaluation model to assist with the prioritization of distributed ledger applications. Insurance-specific use cases will be reviewed in detail and compared against one another to emphasize trade-offs which should be considered.

A sample of other speakers on tap for ITA LIVE include:

  • Bryan Fowler, a CIO 100 Executive, will speak on keeping pace with change and customer expectations.
  • George Grieve, CEO of CastleBay Consulting, and columnist for ITA Pro magazine, will speak on core systems with the theme: The More Things Change the More They Stay the Same.
