Celent conducted another successful peer networking event (PNE), this time in Atlanta. The event was well-attended by insurers from around the area and even had representation from a bank. The PNEs are designed to bring together insurers to discuss topics that they find of interest, either due to immediate concerns or future direction. The structure of the forum allows for open and candid discussions between the participants.

The two topics that were discussed during this PNE were emerging technologies and the architecture concerns that go along with incorporating and integrating these new technologies into an existing environment. Celent provided its perspective and insight into these areas and the group engaged in a lot of interactive dialog. Carriers were interested in what others are doing with respect to telematics, customer sentiment and the use of external data. There was a growing concern expressed about how to deal with the large amounts of varying data and how to incorporate that information into the business decisioning process. For example, one carrier wanted to know if anyone had experience with data aggregators to help deal with the Big Data challenge that is beginning to hit the insurance industry.
