These days, everyone seems to be talking about big data. But at present, it is hard to gauge what the analysis of ever-growing data volumes will actually mean for insurers in the medium term. With this in mind, we are approaching the issue step by step at Munich Re, exploring both the opportunities and the risks involved. Last autumn, we launched five pilot projects with the aim of investigating where and how genuine improvements in business processes, risk management and underwriting can be achieved, basing our research on specific, defined objectives. One such project is presented in the current issue of Topics Magazine.
