Driving innovation with CGI

By Paul Wishman, Vice President, Insurance, CGI

Driving insurtech innovation with CGI

A host of new technologies is remaking an old-fashioned industry

The insurance sector has seen a dramatic shift in the way that it incorporates new technologies.

An emerging cohort is leading the pack, engaging with insurtechs to drive innovation. But despite these efforts, the industry remains some way off the pace of peers in other markets, most notably retail banking and telecoms, where innovation has been strong.

At CGI, we believe that new technology must be able to pivot for future need, future data integration and new services, and that systems integration should be front of mind.

Our experiences and competencies, which span many other sectors as well as insurance, give us the perfect vantage point for the road ahead. From here, we can see a host of new technologies changing the face of the insurance industry: From cryptocurrency, which is gradually making its presence felt in insurance, all the way through to automation, which hold enormous promise to improve scale and efficiency.
