Creating Room for Innovation

Summary:

In this webinar, ITL Editor-in-Chief Paul Carroll interviews Anne Plese, Senior Director of Product Marketing at Rimini Street, and James Maudslay, global director of insurance at Equinix on how operational efficiency can create the room for innovation.

Even as insurers focus on innovation and the technology that will enable it, they still must maintain and operate the legacy systems that run the business. What if it’s possible to spend less time and money on those systems, freeing resources to focus on developing systems that will really move the needle for the business?

In this webinar, ITL Editor-in-Chief Paul Carroll interviews Anne Plese, Senior Director of Product Marketing at Rimini Street, and James Maudslay, global director of insurance at Equinix on how operational efficiency can create the room for innovation.

They cover:

–How outsourcing service can return massive amounts of dollars of working capital to insurers.

–How to address the skills gap as those who coded the core systems decades ago retire and are being replaced by people who aren’t even trained in the computer languages that were used.

–How to cost-effectively maintain the tens of millions of lines of custom code that aren’t covered under mainstream maintenance contracts with Oracle, SAP and the other big technology vendors.
