and Analytics for the
InEdge is a consultancy specialized in Business Intelligence (BI) and Analytics for the Insurance industry. At InEdge, we use our vast experience and expertise to help our clients gather and understand large amounts of data from various sources to make real-time decisions in a more cost-effective, efficient, and reliable manner. We align our clients’ business strategies while creating their corporate-level programs for implementing Business Intelligence and Analytics for Insurers. We can share our Business Intelligence Accelerators, which are intellectual property assets that we have developed to help our clients significantly decrease implementation time, costs, and risks.
We strongly believe in providing a customized
approach and therefore, our services are always
tailored to our clients’ specific needs.
Business Intelligence Roadmap
One of our most valued services is our Business Intelligence Roadmap (BIR). This service provides Insurers with everything they need to successfully approach and deploy strategic Business Intelligence or Analytics initiatives. We include a complete and detailed strategic deployment plan that evaluates the costs, resources, and scope of
Business Intelligence and Analytics initiatives.
Business Intelligence Gap Analysis
For those with ongoing Business Intelligence or Analytics programs, our Business Intelligence Gap Analysis is cost-effective, is offered at a fixed price, and can be delivered in a matter of weeks.
It is a wise investment that can save you time, money, and frustration. Business Intelligence Gap Analysis deliverables include a number of support artifacts, such as our Analytical Information Needs Model, a color-coded heat map indicating opportunities for analytics and Business Intelligence applications. We provide the analysis and perspective needed to understand the task at hand, to set milestones, as well as to get the attention and buy-in from key stakeholders.
Business Intelligence and Analytics Implementation
We not only advise you on the best Business Intelligence or Analytics solutions and processes, we also implement your strategic Business Intelligence initiatives. We have the expertise, in terms of people, process, and technology to help you achieve your Business Intelligence or Analytics goals. We understand what it takes to see a Business Intelligence or Analytics project through to completion. Our Implementation services ensure your insurance Business Intelligence or Analytics initiative is carried through to completion successfully and in a timely manner. Whether you decide to go with a product-agnostic approach, prefer to make use of your legacy systems, or prefer to make use of our Accelerators,
we are ready to help.
Developing an initiative that aligns with stated business objectives and taking advantage of technologies that will deliver them is a specialty of its own. The ability to implement the vision is another. We do both.
SMART eBI Methodology
At InEdge, we have developed an effective, proven, and forward-looking methodology to guide your Insurance Business Intelligence or Analytics project from concept through to completion and beyond. The SMART eBI methodology has five distinct but overlapping project stages with agreed-upon goals and defined deliverables at each stage. It transforms your current ambitions into measurable, achievable milestones, while leaving room for future development.
The five Business Intelligence project life cycle stages provide a roadmap for the complete project. Each stage is further subdivided into activities that must be completed for the complete solution to be developed. Certain activities can be executed in parallel with other activities, while some activities must be performed in a sequential order.
InEdge Accelerators, representing our accumulated knowledge over many years, have been packaged to be easily shared with our clients. We call these Intellectual Property Accelerators, which include content, such as data models, data integration models, templates for dashboards, and key performance metrics calculations. The Accelerators are a collection of intellectual property assets that we bring to the table to mitigate the risk, reduce the cost, and increase the velocity of delivery.
For some Insurers, the integration of our Accelerators helps to shorten the time to ROI, and to considerably lower the cost of building a complete solution while answering all of an Insurer’s business decision needs.
In summary, we can help you exploit the power of analytical applications. Whether you want to buy and personalize or build applications from scratch, we deliver solutions.
To become the partner of choice in Business Intelligence and Analytics for the Insurance industry by working tirelessly to ensure our clients’ success through the integrity and expertise of our people and the excellence of
Our clients appreciate the values we bring to our business practices.
The client is at the centre of our universe. This is more than a mere statement; it is a philosophy. Everything we do is centered on the fact that we are doing it to add value to the relationship that we develop with our clients. Our clients evolve in a world that is not static. We therefore evolve with them. This means listening to what our clients are saying, every step of the way. Not just at the beginning of a project, but as we go along. We constantly review objectives to make sure that we are aligned with our client’s expectations as they evolve.
No compromise about this. We demand total integrity. Our clients trust us with an asset that is beyond value: their information. We therefore adhere to the highest standards of ethics and integrity.
We became the leaders in our field of expertise because we lead the pack as opposed to following trends. We were the first to focus on Business Intelligence, long before it was even referred to as BI.
With passion, we constantly innovate and improve our solutions for the benefit of our clients.
We believe that the team is stronger than the sum of its components. Therefore, our teams ALWAYS include client representatives. Our virtual team approach is unique in our market segment, allowing us to tackle project after project, large or small, with confidence and consistent success.
Harmonious relationships with our clients are important to us. While re-assessing and re-evaluating client objectives on an ongoing basis, we keep our goals and objectives clear and transparent. Relationships, in which all parties understand each other’s expectations, result in satisfied clients, motivated implementation teams, and executives who meet their objectives.
