This talk is really an open conversation with a long time JCP member, that have been battling for more transparency and simplicity in the process. No question is too basic, no question is forbidden, no comment is too bold, this conversation will try to answer everything you ever wanted about the JCP!

NEOS will be attending Gartner Symposium/IT Expo 2014. If you are attending too, send us a note to meet at the conference.
At Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2014, CIOs and senior IT executives will learn how to realize, build and optimize digital opportunities, move digital business from theory to practice, and evolve their own IT leadership to become indispensable in the new digital business world.
Despite ongoing improvement among systems and service providers, and more experience among insurers, NEOS still sees 40% or more system deployment projects challenged to deliver expected value. Traditional systems selection processes that fail to differentiate between vendors, accurately identify needs, and balance the needs of all stake holders tend to be at the heart of this issue. In this webinar, we will discuss the best practices that insurers can follow to help system selection leaders be more effective, efficient, and successful in selecting the best solution and getting the implementation project off to a successful start.
