This SMA report explores both the current state and future plans for data and analytics in the life and annuity industry, highlighting meaningful differences between individual and group, and differences by tier (company size). This is the second annual study, and was conducted in conjunction with ACORD and LOMA.   

Data and Analytics in Insurance: L&A Plans and Priorities for 2013 and Beyond answers the following questions:

  • Which parts of the business are leveraging analytics today? In which types of new projects are insurers investing?
  • Which types of analytics tools and approaches are gaining favor with insurers?
  • How do investments and projects differ for individual and group? Where do analytics project investments differ by tier?
  • How much are insurers spending (inside and outside of the IT budget) on data and analytics?

Figure 1 illustrates the percent of insurers planning IT budget increases for data and analytics for 2013-2015.
