Technology is constantly evolving and raising the bar for insurers to survive – if you fall behind in the digital department, so will your business. A McKinsey study found that the insurance industry has struggled for years to achieve productivity gains on a scale, particularly when compared with other industries. In addition, the spread in operating costs between the highest and lowest performers in both P&C and Life has substantially increased over the past decade. 

Maintaining a bug-free product, and responding to customer queries at jet speed, consistently, are critical for customer delight and retention, the key pillars of insurance practice. There is also the need to stay on top of a fast moving data environment with automated workflows to increase IT agility and business scalability. However, all this requires significant technological investment, which is where cognitive managed services can help you big time. Cognitive managed services contribute toward cutting redundancy, time, and resources spent on repetitive tasks leaving more time and money for your teams to focus on future growth. 

AI-driven automation in support and maintenance services through a managed services approach has a great impact on reducing the operational cost and enable insurers to focus on business transformation, enterprise agility, and functional excellence. 

The ROI effectiveness of managed services can be tracked by how well you use AI, automation, and analytics to effortlessly carry out both simple and complex tasks. However, that’s just the starting point. You should also accelerate your deployment of complex IT stacks to improve application enhancement and resiliency.  

A proactive cognitive application managed service equips you with clean data across core processes so you can align your business performance with your IT goals. It ensures that you can automate key support processes such as incident management, defect management, or change management while leveraging machine learning or AI-based tools to resolve frequently occurring incidents.
