Punxsutawney Phil predicts it's time to reevaluate your underwriting approach

by Jen Smoldt

So, what does Groundhog Day have to do with underwriting?

On February 2nd, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow. And, you're probably thinking, "So what does this have to do with my underwriting?" Just bear with the logic for a moment….Do you know how often Phil’s forecasts have been right? If he were right say even 70-80 percent of the time, would you see animal predictions as rooted in science? A sound piece of data perhaps? 

Whether you buy or build, getting ahead depends on leveraging the right experts

by Derek Blum

Expertise can mean many things. Our last post from our CTO Brandon Purcell, How collaborating on technology changes the buy vs. build debate once and for all, touched on this important, but often overlooked part of this equation. Brandon pointed out that to obtain a solution that truly helps you understand your data and identify the insights you need to make decisions, you have to collaborate with experts. I wholeheartedly agree. But, I would add that you have to use the right kind of expert—with the right skill set—to successfully build and deploy a data analytics solution that will be readily adopted by your team.
