Adoption of Analytics, SaaS, Mobile Continues to Grow for Insurers, says Novarica’s 4th Annual Study

January 11, 2017 (BOSTON) – While deployment rates vary across the industry, more and more insurers are adopting new technology. According to the 4th annual emerging technology report by research and advisory firm Novarica, one in four insurers is planning a pilot in Analytics, SaaS, or Mobile in 2017, while the use of Social Media for data analysis has more than doubled since 2014.

Novarica’s latest report, available at, is based on a survey of 91 insurer CIOs, and tracks deployments in seven key technology areas: social, mobile, analytics, big data, cloud, digital, and IoT/drones.

“These seven are often lumped together as ‘emerging technology areas’ by insurers, although they share little else in common,” said Matthew Josefowicz, President and CEO of Novarica. “They cross consumer media and communications (social), technology platforms (mobile and cloud), tools (analytics some parts of big data, IoT, drones), and strategy (digital). But they all enable potentially disruptive changes in insurance value chain.”


Desk copies of the report are available to qualified media. Please contact or call Adam Asher at 617-897-1921 for more information.
