October 11, 2016
New and exciting technologies promise to transform the insurance industry.

E-Signature Successes in Insurance
July 27, 2016
Client satisfaction has long been a top priority for life insurance companies. Ironically, a common problem with the standard, manual, paper-based processing used by insurance carriers is impaired productivity that leads to write-backs. Equipping representatives and clients with the ability to complete, sign and submit life insurance applications electronically with e-signatures eliminates the need to print, manage, mail and store paper – resulting in significant time and cost savings.
In this webinar, you hear the stories of two life insurers' e-signature projects, their user requirements, adoption goals and results after implementing e-signatures in their processes.
New Methods of Measuring Vendor Cybersecurity Performance
April 26, 2016
Your organization’s third party risk assessment process has likely come under increased scrutiny. Regulators, boards of directors, and investors have grown increasingly concerned about potential security risks introduced by both traditional and SaaS vendors. At the same time, life insurance companies are experiencing rapid growth in total number of vendors they do business with, particularly SaaS, as both line of business and decentralized IT groups require specialized capabilities to meet business objectives. The traditional method of relying on vendor surveys and attestations can no longer keep up with the complexity and volume of work required to accurately measure the security program quality of all these third parties.
New methods have emerged to help control and manage third party security risks. This webinar presents new methods for measuring the information security quality of any company just by looking at it.
A Progressive Approach to Insurance Policy Administration Transformation
November 19, 2015
Many carriers are embarking on a transformation journey to modernize their core policy administration systems in an effort to provide more flexibility, improve speed-to-market and increase revenue growth and profitability. However, there is simply nothing as daunting as a full policy administration system replacement project. These initiatives take multiple years to complete, and they are expensive and risky.
To reduce risk, some carriers are using progressive migration instead of full system replacement. These carriers implement some components of the system first – such as new business, commission or billing – then expand to full policy administration functionality once the technology is proven. This approach allows carriers to achieve incremental returns on the investment and minimize risk. It reduces the need for carriers to take a "big bang" approach to modernizing. In this webcast, Oracle and LOMA invite you to learn more about this approach and explore how insurers can use policy administration components to achieve enterprise agility while reducing risk.

In this webinar, SMA Partner Mark Breading discusses the results of the research and how certain emerging technologies may impact our industry.
