The insurance landscape is constantly evolving. And modern customers demand rapid, high-quality digital services in all areas of their lives, including insurance. Moreover, if a company fails to meet their expectations, they are ready to switch to competitors' services.
However, conventional legacy insurance infrastructure has failed to meet these demands. Today, most of the traditional environment comprises a variety of systems purpose-built for specific insurance products. The combination of different legacy systems, inconsistent processes, and rigid code is too inflexible and complicated to support the modern business strategies required to remain competitive.
As more and more tech-savvy millennials join insurance programs, insurers must transform their engagement methods. In contrast to the previous generation of customers, millennials need responsive and efficient customer service through smartphones and digital platforms. Meeting these requirements and expectations requires considerable changes in traditional insurance companies, both in approach and organizational structures.
InsurTechs are the primary reason behind the significant change in the competitive landscape. While InsurTechs provide insurance companies with the capabilities to provide services through partnerships, such capabilities also impact insurers’ traditional legacy systems.
According to Deloitte’s 2021 Insurance M&A Outlook Report, M&A in the insurance sector remains an ongoing process due to Australian banks' divestment of non-core assets and continued global expansion by Asian insurers. Insurance companies are under pressure to preserve deal value for investors and other stakeholders during the post-merger integration phase, where incorporating the latest technology has historically been a challenge for many deals.
Because of the competitive environment, insurance companies need to sustain their market position by offering new products. However, legacy systems make it challenging to offer new products due to their complex nature.
A lot of legacy environments are expensive in regards to both hardware and software
Insurance companies' administration systems must comply with regulations and rules. But, there is a high cost involved in making them compliant.
In the modern world, it is essential to integrate administration systems with newer technologies. Unfortunately, legacy systems are notorious for limiting insurers’ need to adapt to newer technologies and limiting business growth.
