Accenture’s 2015 Technology Vision for Insurance suggests the next level of operational excellence and the next generation of software services will emerge from the latest gains in software intelligence. Until now, increasingly capable software has been geared toward helping employees make better and faster decisions. But with an influx of big data—and advances in processing power, data science and cognitive technology—software intelligence is helping machines to make even more and better-informed decisions.
The takeaway for insurers is that software intelligence is not just another pilot or one-off project, but functionality that should be applied across-the board. It’s a development that will drive new levels of evolution and discovery, and propel innovation throughout the enterprise.
