In just three weeks we will be welcoming our customers to Software AG’s signature UK Innovation Tour event.
The event will take place on 28 September at the iconic Andaz London Liverpool Street.
I am pleased to announce that joining us as a keynote speaker will be Marco Forneris, Senior Advisor at Octo Telematics. Octo Telematics is a leading global provider of telematics and data analytics solutions for the auto insurance industry. Marco will be sharing unique insights as to how Octo’s pioneering use of the Internet of Things helped to create its Next Generation Platform (NGP). The digitalization of the insurance world means that tailored telematics can be used to improve services to drivers.
Octo’s NGP can take data from any sensor through its IoT hub, analyze it to deliver multidimensional analytics, and then provide real-time data services to support a fully digital transformation of the policyholder experience. In addition to core telematics services such as driver behavior scoring, and crash and claims analysis, these new capabilities provide better risk analytics for insurance and long term rental and fleet partners.
NGP was built to boost the potential of IoT and digital insurance disruption; giving companies of all scale the solution to build a complete new customer experience for policyholders and transform other insurance verticals besides auto - like home, pet, health and on-demand insurance.
Welcoming our customers and partners to Innovation Tour 2017 will be our new VP for UK & Nordics, Bo Gyldenvang. Bo has over 20 years of experience in IT sales consultancy and leadership globally, with a laser focus on growth. His goal is to deliver true relevancy to customers, making certain they are in the best possible digital position.
Our first keynote speaker, Neil Ward-Dutton, Research Director, MWD Advisors, will talk about the infinitely abundant digital resources in our world and how very few organizations have really embraced this new reality.
Eric Duffaut, Chief Customer Officer at Software AG, will explain the 5 steps that enterprises must follow in their journey to digital transformation. These steps include tangible tips and numerous use cases inspired by the companies already on the road from digital exploration to digital disruption.
Finally, I will talk about how technology is changing the competitive landscape faster than ever. Native digital companies are disrupting entire markets with superior customer service. One thing is clear: To outperform the competition, your business must become digital.
Digitalization offers your customers more choice; choice of suppliers, choice of how and when to buy. It drives the creation of new business models that power the formation of your next competitor – at a speed you have never seen before.
Companies are using software to create these new business models, to disrupt and then to lead. If you are not sure where to start or where to go from here, or if you have a digital transformational journey you would like to share with others, you should join the Software AG UK Innovation Tour.
