The panel of participants will explore operational processes, data ownership, business transformation planning, data quality monitoring and control, and integration of data security and privacy across the data governance framework. We will also discuss the role data plays in the digitization of business and how governance needs to adjust to accommodate this use.

Similar to broker dealers, insurers selling annuities are trying to understanding how to address the new Department of Labor rules. The changes will impact the selling process, methods of disclosure, service routes, and alter sales requirements; all of which can seem overwhelming. NEOS has been observing the initial trends that will help insurers seamlessly transition into the new environment. We want to share with you the key role that technology will play in helping companies leapfrog their competition and enhance their value to distribution partners. Join us as we talk with industry experts related to the following technology topics:
•Leveraging a lens-based approach to evaluate existing core systems against future requirements.
•Best practices in leveraging technology to sell and service smaller accounts.
•How digitalizing key processes will help gather the right data to ensure BICE requirements are met.
Improper and untimely engagement of IT stakeholders – and any stakeholder for that matter - has been blamed for numerous mistakes, delays, or failures to deliver on critical company initiatives. Rather than troubleshoot project failure and project management best practices – since each circumstance has its own’ complications - this platform will discuss the topic differently. This 3-part blog series will demonstrate an end to end approach for managing process or capability redesign efforts, designed to nail down a strategy and gain leader buy-in quickly and effectively. You will gain practical advice and tips to understand how and when project teams should engage key stakeholders in redesign initiatives, from strategy to implementation.
