Let’s reimagine the business of insurance together

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

One example of transformation is openIDL, a network built on the IBM Blockchain Platform with the American Association of Insurance Services (AAIS). AAIS is automating insurance regulatory reporting and streamlining compliance requirements, and that’s improving efficiency and accuracy for both insurers and state insurance departments.
