MetLife Wins 2016 Novarica Research Council Impact Award for Data Initiative
More than 40 Insurer CIOs Voted to Select Award Winners from Case Studies Submitted by Insurers
September 19, 2016 (BOSTON) – The members of the Novarica Insurance Technology Research Council, a membership group of hundreds of insurer CIOs, have selected MetLife as the winner of this year’s Novarica Research Council Impact Award for a Data Initiative at a Large Insurer.
MetLife enabled real-time interactive views and aggregations of derivatives and risk data across multiple platforms. The ability to drill down across multiple scenarios reduced the desk’s time in consolidating data by 65% and enhanced their trading decision support.
This case study, along with dozens of other eligible cases, was published this spring in the Novarica Best Practices Case Study Compendium 2016, available at http://novarica.com/compendium2016/. It was selected as the winner in its category by insurer CIO members of the Council.
“The combined efforts of the business and IT on this project enabled us to drastically reduce the cycle time for these complex financial transactions,” said Lee Ann Murray, CIO for Investments IT. “That capability is significant, allowing us to respond in real time to market movements.”
“We congratulate MetLife on the peer recognition of their successful initiative,” said Matthew Josefowicz, president and CEO of Novarica, and lead moderator of the Research Council. “Since 2012, Novarica has published more than 150 case studies of insurer IT initiatives that drive business results, and the most impactful have been selected by our Council members for awards each year.”
