As insurance organisations begin to understand the real risks and implications of their end-user computing estate, so many will start to consider alternative, better controlled and perhaps more appropriate technology solutions. This policy outlines the key principles & guidelines for the development, use & governance of all user developed applications associated with the ongoing business operation.
End-user developed applications now form an integral part of the information management and decision making framework of many organisations across different industry sectors. This document provides a comprehensive set of standards for the development of Excel-based end-user computing solutions, to ensure that any solution is appropriately controlled and robust.
The Quintant Partners Actuarial Systems Strategy Development Toolkit will allow you to develop a well-structured, coherent and relevant actuarial systems strategy in line with the current and emerging needs of the business, and considering the opportunities afforded by new technology trends.
Selecting the most appropriate financial reporting platform is likely to be a decision that most insurers will only face once during the lifetime of a given business. This toolkit is designed to provide a comprehensive & structured framework for assessing the functional and non-functional features of a financial reporting platform, either in isolation or against competitor products
Selecting a financial modelling platform is likely to be a decision that most insurers will only face once during the lifetime of a given business. This means that making the most appropriate selection decision for both the current and future anticipated needs of that business is absolutely critical.
Over the last five years a number of apparently enterprise-ready financial modelling platforms have appeared on the market. This guide outlines some of the most important factors when considering the adoption of such a package.
This presentation is from the 2014 Quintant Partners Risk and Actuarial Forum. The one-day event focused on the challenges and opportunities associated with all aspects of actuarial systems, and provided an opportunity for those interested in the evolving world of actuarial & risk modelling platforms and associated systems, to share ideas & discuss challenges with others.
The Risk & Actuarial Systems Strategy Development seminar was the first event in our series of seminars and explored the elements and drivers of a successful risk and actuarial systems strategy. The half-day event dived into the framework behind our Actuarial Systems Toolkit and provided a wider understanding of the fundamentals of a successful strategy document.
Over the last 20 years financial modelling systems have become a fundamental part of the actuarial and risk technology stack. But as these modelling platforms have come of age, have they evolved in line with emerging technology trends and the increasingly operational and risk mitigating needs of their users? This guide offers some pointers on the things to consider when selecting a new modelling platform.
This toolkit is designed to help those responsible for financial modelling understand the true direct and indirect costs associated with their existing environments, either to provide a basis for future investment or indeed as part of any consideration regarding re-platforming or mergers and acquisitions.
Much is currently being made about the so-called disruptive technology trends emerging around us and how these changes are likely to be even more fundamental to businesses than dawn of client-server computing in the 1980s. In this research note we review the potential impact of each of these and other related trends on the financial modelling environment of tomorrowâ€™s insurance company.
