This SMA report explores both the current state and future plans for data and analytics in the property and casualty industry in North America. The report addresses insurers’ business and IT priorities and plans for leveraging data and investigates how business intelligence and advanced analytics are being applied for both strategic and operational advantage. This is the third annual study and was conducted in conjunction with ACORD.

  • 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 are insurers dealing with new sources of data – including hazard, telematics, and social media data?
  • What are insurers’ spending plans for data and analytics?

Figure 1 illustrates the top project areas where analytics are used by P&C insurers today.
