“The insurtech space has seen massive growth over the last 5 years, and with a projected 34.4% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) over the next 6 years, according to a recent report from Valuates Reports, it doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. This trend is positive not only for the startups in this space but for the end customer as well.

Savvy Insurance Solutions LLC is one insurtech name leading the charge to a more digitally integrated landscape in the insurance world. While some insurtech startups have focused on back-office innovations, personalizing policy options or combating fraud, Savvy and its parent company Trellis Technologies Inc. have taken a different approach.”

“The upcoming mid-size SUV MG Astor has been most talked about for implementing level 2 autonomous technology, but perhaps a more interesting aspect of the car is in how the company is using blockchains on it. Like most connected vehicles today, the MG Astor also records information on the user’s driving prowess. MG has partnered with homegrown blockchain firm Koinearth, to record this data into something called a “Digital Passport.

For the customer, the digital passport is simply an interface on the app, which shows the data the car has recorded. However, Praphul Chandra, chief executive officer of Koinearth, explained that it is at the centre of a blockchain-based platform that connects various parties. In this case, the passport is created by MG Motors, but the data in it is owned by the user, meaning they will have to explicitly provide consent before someone else can access this data.”

5 Ways boards can help digital transformations

“Boards can add value to their business’s digital transformation in five specific areas.

Few board directors would dispute the importance of digital and how it’s fundamentally reshaping the competitive landscape in almost every sector. But many of those we speak to are uncertain about what their role should be in helping senior management drive the digital transformations that businesses need to execute in order to survive.

In-depth discussions with dozens of board directors has helped shed some light on where boards can add value. What is emerging is a model where the core mandate of the board is unchanged but its scope for intervention on issues such as risk and competition is expanding. We see five things boards members can do to have the greatest impact.”
