Innovation Creates Life-changing Advances in Insurance

Robert Regis Hyle | February 06, 2017

Whenever organizations are required to innovate, heads naturally turn toward IT due to years of conditioning by over-hyped technology product launches and a “there’s an app for that” mentality which drives expectations of instant gratification, a desire for increased personalization in products and service, and new behavior patterns created by (at least a couple of) truly life-changing technology advances.

Allan Egbert, co-founder of Ask Kodiak, will discuss these points and more at a session of ITA LIVE. Jennifer Overhulse, founder of St. Nick Media Services, will moderate the discussion. The session—Innovation (in Insurance) is a State of Mind—will be part of ITA’s third annual conference to be held from March 12-14, at the Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) Marriott Pompano Beach Resort and Spa. To register for ITA LIVE visit

The mash-up of insurance and technology (insurtech) can only be successful if innovation is not limited to IT, according to Egbert, but extends into product definition, processes, workflows, regulation, and culture across all disciplines within an insurance company, including accounting/finance, operations, underwriting, customer service, distribution channels and IT.

This session highlights ways anyone within the insurance value chain can think more like an entrepreneur, foster a culture of innovation from the inside out, evaluate revolutionary ideas and technologies, and transform the business of insurance with a whole new state of mind.
