As insurers begin to look at leveraging their data across all business units to make more effective and efficient business decisions and identify cost reduction opportunities, data mastery investments become critical.

Most vendors provide an integrated data mastery suite solution, offering ETL, data warehouse/data mart, analysis server, BI presentation layer, and some level of BI content, such as insurance data models, dashboard and report templates, KPIs, etc., which was not the case three years ago, according to the report. Most systems today provide some level of transactional analytics and dashboards; however, insurers that are succeeding are looking at their data mastery efforts from an enterprise perspective and definition.
