SAS Insurance Circle
SAS Insurance Circle: Online exchange of experiences for insurance experts
Off to the “Elastic Cloud”:
Opportunities & challenges for insurers
At the SAS Insurance Circle, you can expect a practical exchange of experiences about best practices, stumbling blocks and approaches to solutions with your colleagues from other insurance companies in 60-minute video conferences.
The Elastic Cloud opens up almost unlimited technical possibilities for companies, but what does this mean in practice for the insurance industry? Insurance companies in particular must first overcome a multitude of regulatory and procedural hurdles before they can actually reap the great benefits of outsourcing to the cloud. In addition, there are all kinds of questions regarding process organisation, responsibilities and professional competence.
Which applications are actually suitable for which cloud model? What does the technical target picture look like – keyword “cloud-native”? How can existing legacy applications be migrated? How do responsibilities and processes change? Which skills are required? What are the organisational, technical and legal risks? We address these aspects in the context of cloud adaptation.
