Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), based in New York and Mumbai, is a global IT services company with expertise in business process management in several vertical market segments. TCS's insurance experts have been exploring the impact that GIS technology will have on the insurance industry. Given that almost every element of property and casualty insurance has an intrinsic relationship to location, TCS is helping its clients to better understand how location-based information can be modeled and analyzed to visualize spatial information and trends. "The reasons for this vary, but it all comes down to the need to better analyze and predict scenarios," said Vinod Kachroo, Global Head of Industry Domain and Consulting and CTO, Insurance & Healthcare for TCS.
"Given that so many claims are related to climate change or weather (for example, flooding, high winds, etc.), GIS related information and maps are increasingly becoming the tools that insurers are turning to for analysis and prediction. It could very well become the risk assessment tool of choice in the not so distant future.".....more
