Do you have trouble keeping up with things in the IT world?
Is constant change trying to turn your perspective upside down?

Well, you're not alone.
It's true that technology is accelerating at an even greater pace now than
ever before. And that speed of change will continue to grow exponentially over the next 5-10 years. But there's also an old saying that “we tend to overestimate the effect of a technology in the short run and underestimate its effect in the long run.”

We see it everyday with insurance carriers -- improved customer engagement,
increased automation in underwriting and claims systems, newer operational efficiencies and enriched risk management practices.
