Conversations of Four: A Peer to Peer Networking Experience IASA is bringing a new interactive feature to our 2018 Executive Roundtables: Conversations of Four. The design of these sessions is based on social research
into the value of small-group discussions. The Chief Information/Technology Roundtable includes three 20-minute conversations of four, with discussion categories suggested by attendees and industry executives. Within each category there are several topics for discussion. You decide which topics you want to discuss and, with the help of a moderator, the conversations will flow based on the makeup of the group. You can stick with the same topic or change it up after each round of conversations.
Successful IT Transformation Prompts Organizational Change While transformation initiatives look different within every insurance company, there are typical ingredients of success, from key partners and new technologies to internal
power users, change management, and process re-engineering. Still, the path taken to a full-on, IT infrastructure overhaul is fraught with challenges. During this session, attendees will hear insurer insights and lessons learned from specific examples of dissecting and reassembling processes, systems and workflows in a way that ensures preparedness for the future.
