In a market subject to swift change, it is essential for insurance companies to have a skillfully crafted IT strategy, as only insurance companies who have clearly defined the role and development of their IT are ideally positioned to respond to new challenges of digital transformation.
Particularly in the case of large insurance companies, it is important to identify the requirements placed on individual areas of IT requiring action and to manage these requirements well. This is why one of Germany’s largest insurers has turned to Q_PERIOR as a company specialized in business and IT consultancy to develop an IT strategy for the years ahead. Together with the customer, Q_PERIOR consultants initially identified the areas of action relevant to IT in order to break down the overall IT strategy into several sub-strategies. Individual concepts, guidelines and requirements are collated for this purpose. The sub-strategies developed on this basis are subsequently measured against the future scenarios of the respective departments and additional requirements are derived from this. A detailed overall strategy is ultimately consolidated, along with costs and investments, by bringing together the sub-strategies from the areas of IT governance, enterprise architecture management, sourcing, IT processes & methods, innovation management, IT services, as well as IT security and compliance.
