Reimagine the business of insurance

Technological disruption has come to insurance — and the smart risk management strategy is to embrace it. IBM Blockchain is radically transforming insurance operations with faster verifiable data exchanges, visibility for all parties, and transactions underpinned with pervasive security and trust.

How it works

IBM Blockchain records transactions on a provable, permanent ledger, so multiple parties can exchange data with increased transparency and security. This is particularly important for insurers dealing with sensitive financial and personal information, often with multiple parties involved.

What’s the potential ROI of IBM Blockchain?

We commissioned a Forrester Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) report to help you identify the cost, benefits, flexibilities and risk factors of working with IBM Blockchain. The research is based on Forrester’s TEI methodology, financial model framework and case studies, plus interviews with IBM Blockchain stakeholders and customers.
