Gaining Competitive Advantage with the Intelligent Cloud

As insurance carriers embark upon their digital transformation journey, they increasingly leverage technology and data to engage with their customers, enhance their products, optimize their operations, and empower their employees. In this environment, with its Intelligent Cloud, Microsoft is uniquely positioned to help carriers enhance business agility, differentiate on service, and grow profitable business.

Join us in Brussels on either October 25 or October 26 for a full-day Executive Briefing to explore how Microsoft can help power your digital transformation – the path from vision to execution, from new business models to technology enablers, from on premise to Cloud, from data-driven business to compliance with data privacy laws.

We will share Microsoft’s point of view on the digital transformation in Insurance, provide an overview of our solutions portfolio and discuss the implications of security and privacy considerations for your business.

In these invitation-only Executive Briefings, we will also explore the current state of digital transformation in Insurance through customer examples, provide technology updates and, together with you, create the opportunity for dialogue amongst industry leaders.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Microsoft EBC in Brussels as we seek to ‘Empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more’.
