Staff Writer | August 22, 2018

The August issue of ITA Pro magazine is now available in digital version and on the ITA Pro apps through GoogleiOS, and Amazon. Click here for this new edition:

The cover story, “Moving Beyond Blockchain 101,” delves into this hot topic -- but with a twist. Instead of focusing on traditional applications such as claims and underwriting, this article talks about the practical utilization of blockchain to get to "Know Your Customer". Creating a blockchain-based "KYC" digital solution has the potential for standardization across multiple industries.

Additionally, this issue features these thought-provoking articles:

  • "Blockchain -- Transforming Insurance at the Core": This piece expands on the cover story theme by demonstrating that blockchain technology is no longer just being discussed -- it's being implemented in core areas of insurance today. 
  • "Why Worry About Business Architecture?": You already know the importance of having an effective -- and modernized -- technology architecture. Why shouldn't the business side of the house have a similar pro-active approach to ensure success?
  • "The Insurance Technology Picture: Emerging, Converging and Resurging": SMA reports that 43% of insurance executives say that their company is in transformation mode. Find out what this transformation looks like in action.
  • "The Willis Towers Watson Union: A Recipe for Business and IT Collaboration Success": This case study highlights one of the largest mergers in insurance history and how a massive and comprehensive IT transformation/collaboration project helped make it successful.

We hope you enjoy this issue and welcome any comments or questions you may have.

Thanks for reading!
