Use the Power of Machine Learning to
Thrive Under Market Disruption

Insurance companies are experiencing rapid digital transformation as new mobile-first and customer-centric InsureTechs flood the market. The industry is responding quickly with new products, processes, and technologies to compete. Additionally, new technology companies are emerging with packaged-applications to automate banking and insurance business processes.

Even though the applications of ML in the insurance industry are well-known, many companies struggle to operationalize them into the fabric of the enterprise operations.

Industry Challenges

Industry Disruption

InsureTechs have been using new data sources, artificial intelligence, and in-the-moment decisions to disrupt the traditional insurance industry.

Disjointed Systems

Duct-taping compute engines together results in a complex architecture that requires excessive data movement.

Application Transformation

Incompatibility between existing applications and the underlying architecture forces companies to rewrite applications.


These challenges ultimately lead to poor decisions on stale data caused by the data movement between the duct-taped compute engines. As a result, insurers fail to take advantage of opportunities such as optimizing customer acquisition, delivering personalized service, processing claims efficiently, intelligently underwriting policies, and detecting fraud more effectively.

The Benefits of Modernized Applications

Improve
Customer Service

Leverage petabytes of data to resolve disputes and provide a response in milliseconds.

Leverage Data
to Prevent Fraud

Use all available data to optimize payouts without adversely affecting customer satisfaction.

Offer Personalized Services

Present customers with offers, rates, and product configurations in real-time, based on data from many sources.

Splice Machine Use Cases: Insurance

Splice Machine applies the power of scale-out architecture and machine learning in the insurance sector across a variety of use cases.

Dynamic Product Configuration

Once your customer is in a buying motion, how can you get them to complete an application for an insurance policy? Insurance products are complex with a number of available options and choices that can be used to customize the base product.

Using machine learning, you can present the most likely packages that are pre-configured to the client need leading to higher conversion rates.

Optimize Marketing for Customer Acquisition And Retention

Putting the right message, offer, or service in front of the right customer at the right time. Communicate with a personalized and consistent message to customers with different motivations in order to convert them into a buying motion.

Computing Risk and Optimal Pricing

Once you get the customer engaged in the underwriting process, how can you accurately assess the risk of underwriting a policy and how do you price the policy properly to reflect that risk? Machine learning can use data from many sources in addition to your own underwriting history to augment traditional statistical and actuarial methods with experience of how customers turned out.

Detecting Fraud and Money Laundering

One of the most significant challenges every insurance company faces is to fight fraud. Using exogenous data at scale and predictive methods enable you to uncover missing or erroneous underwriting information in the underwriting process to detect fraud.

Detecting fraudulent applications and claims is a constant battle where data scientists must continuously experiment to evolve and improve models.

Predict Litigation

Another area where ML has been successfully applied is in predicting litigation. Litigation exponentially increases losses for which insurance companies must be financially prepared. With predictive methods companies can determine what is the likelihood claims will go to litigation and then determine how to reserve funds and assemble legal teams.

The Solution:
Modernize Insurance Applications

Splice Machine can take you on a journey of scaling your application on a new scale-out SQL architecture, unifying analytics into one platform and injecting machine learning directly onto this app platform. Our process can also get you there faster – in months – without needing to hire infrastructure experts.

Our platform empowers you to modernize mission-critical applications that drive your competitive advantage. Splice Machine is a scalable SQL database that enables companies to be agile, data-rich, and intelligent without the risk and expense of re-writing their applications.

When you migrate Oracle and DB2 applications to Splice Machine, you not only reduce database licensing costs but also enable the applications to add new data sources at a massive scale. Splice Machine enables you to unify analytics and machine learning that used to be on separate platforms to be native to the application thereby reducing ETL latency and infrastructure costs.

Splice Machine combines the functionality of an operational database (RDBMS), an analytical database (OLAP) and a machine learning workbench (ML) in one unified platform. Our platform  can be deployed on-premises or in the cloud and is built on open source technology.
