FirstBest Hosts Insurance Webinar "Big Data & Analytics -- Big Possibilities" Featuring Novarica

BEDFORD, Mass., Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Old data is moving faster, new big data is proliferating and innovative technologies are emerging to support rapid processing and analysis.  Underwriters have long leveraged data, but many are searching for the benefits and opportunities that big data offers.  Opening discussion about data's role and potential for better underwriting, FirstBest® Systems, Inc., provider of insurance software solutions for global insurance carriers, today announced a complimentary webinar for insurers contemplating the impact of big data and analytics on underwriting and the overall business.



Presented by: Martina Conlon, Principal at Novarica

Hosted by: Kim Tambo, Senior Manager at FirstBest Systems


Large amounts of data have been central to insurance for decades. However, the sheer volume of data relevant for the industry that is being generated today, as well as the resulting volume of data the insurance industry itself generates, mandate strategies for leveraging this "Big Data."

Reviewing recent research conducted by industry research firm Novarica, Martina Conlon will highlight how the abundance of data will play a critical role in underwriting and insurance operations in the future. The webinar session will cover:

  • Analytics capabilities of U.S. insurance carriers

  • Plans and opportunities for the use of big data

  • A case study about leveraging big data and analytics in underwriting


Wednesday, November 28, 2012, from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. Eastern
