The models are used by insurance companies to predict loss and damage, based on which price of a premium can be resolute.
The insurance sector is one of the major markets, which witness a wide change in terms of technology and operational models owing to the wide availability of data along with developed integration methods and advanced analytical techniques. Based on available large data sets, companies are investing in the untapped potential of these data to reap larger benefits. In addition, the rise in strict regulations, the companies are backing the core insurance operations through the implementation of emerging advanced analytics concepts.
Use cases of insurance analytics
