Insurance, Innovation and IoT – FC Business Intelligence Report


Article Synopsis :

The emerging ecosystem of connected devices presents a huge opportunity for insurers looking to become more relevant to digital-native customers.

 The Digital Insurer reviews FC Business Intelligence’s Report on Insurance, Innovation and IoT

Insurance technology is moving rapidly beyond the keyboard…

The report “Insurance, Innovation and I-o-T”, by FC Business Intelligence, explains how the web of connected devices will transform the relatively static insurance industry and looks at ways insurers can integrate I-o-T into their business and operating models. The report shares research and key findings from various sources on the growing impact of I-o-T on insurance:

  • 20% of insurance companies are currently piloting, testing or deploying an I-o-T project. The number rises to 50% over a three-year period.
  • Property insurance companies are increasingly using drones to assess damages after an incident has occurred. Drones hold the potential to make insurance adjusters’ workflow 40% to 50% more efficient.
  • By 2020, over 50 million US drivers will have tried usage-based insurance models that rely on I-o-T devices.
  • Roughly 30% of the auto market is expected to involve telematics for the majority of policy interaction and pricing by 2025.
  • Also by 2025, half of U.S. homes are expected to be connected through I-o-T devices for monitoring and system control.
  • 80% of respondents to an Intel survey would be willing to share their health data anonymously to reduce health care costs.

The common inclination with new data sources and I-o-T is to use them as tools to lower premiums and provide discounts, which, of course, means less revenue for insurers. The report discusses five areas where the cost-risk-opportunity matrix is particularly dicey for insurers:

  • Handling the Data Flood
  • New Product Options
  • Maintaining Brand Value
  • Meeting the Skills Gap
  • Security and Cyber Risks

The report articulates the top-five expected benefits of I-o-T adoption realized by insurers moving sooner rather than later:

  • Potential to reduce severity and frequency of claims
  • Better risk assessment
  • Service and satisfaction improvements
  • Growth in cybersecurity markets
  • The omni-channel insurer

Digital Insurer's Comments

We believe I-o-T will blur the line between product and service giving rise to the concept of Product-as-a-Service. Today a consumer buys an automobile and auto insurance separately, tomorrow they’ll purchase the two products bundled seamlessly as one.

Insurers at least trying to re-imagine an entirely new I-o-T-enabled world are on the right track.  New business models enabled by mobility, cloud and analytics, harnessing real-time data streams flowing from billions of connected devices, are the future path to profitability in insurance.
