IT Matters Forums
The digital revolution has transformed the way insurers, brokers, agents and underwriters across the world 'do business', rolling-out an array of applications, platforms, technologies and digitised processes. IT has helped companies merge operations, reduce cost, exploit revenue growth and boost security. InTech Forums' series of seminars entitled 'IT Matters' bring together experts in today's insurance-related challenges to share knowledge and stimulate debate among senior IT management about the future direction of the market’s ongoing 'technology revolution'.
Our raison d'être
“The London Market has been undergoing and continues to undergo radical change in its practices, processes and technologies. IT change is rarely easy, for anybody, but especially so in a business sector that is steeped in over 331 years of heritage and tradition. Practitioners from this Market involved in the IT and operational change process will know only too well what a difficult task they face on a daily basis. The overriding aim of the IT Matters forums is to inform, engage, educate and encourage professional interchange of concepts, ideas and practices, by way of presentations and interactive discussions led by respected academics, authors and sector professionals from the world of IT and commercial operations. The hope is that these forums will arm those responsible for business improvement and change with new tools, ideas, concepts and best practice.”

Where and when are the forums held?
IT Matters Forums take place quarterly, usually in the prestigious, oak-panelled Lloyd's Library, which is the meeting place of the community and located at the landmark Lloyd's building in Lime Street, London EC3. For the convenience of delegates, Forums are convened as 'breakfast briefings' (8.30-10.00) or 'lunch forums' (12.00 – 14.00) and include an introduction; presentation by experts in the field; and a lively Q&A session, in all, extending to a focused and demanding 90-minutes. With sessions capped at 120 seats.
The follow-up 75-minute ‘IT Matters’ companion Round Table Briefing sessions are held either in the Lloyd's Building or other prime City/EC3 locations. With sessions capped at 20 seats.
'IT Matters' Forums are scheduled for:
January, April, July and October
These forums and briefings are marketed, managed and hosted by ITF senior personnel, supported by IT specialists from leading service providers who understand the London insurance market and its unique demands and challenges.
