Marsh Named to InformationWeek Elite 100 List of Top Technology Innovators for 2015
New York | June 18, 2015
Marsh, a global leader in insurance broking and risk management, announced today that it has been named to this year’s InformationWeek Elite 100, a list of the top business technology innovators in the US. Marsh was selected for its implementation of EuroTrade 2 (ET2), a flexible platform that expands core trading and placement capabilities and enables better ways of working between Marsh colleagues and their clients and markets.
Marsh corporate business units and IT collaborated to openly challenge existing processes and redefine the new target operating model, ET2, which is capable of rapid insurance product development, data analytics, flexible workflow, and end-to-end insurance processing, from policy inception to invoicing.
“ET2 improves the quality, standard, and turnaround time of policy documentation by producing customized sets of complex documents. This frees administrative capacity for Marsh colleagues, so they can enhance client service,” said Daniel Park, global chief information officer at Marsh. “Marsh’s selection to the InformationWeek Elite 100 reflects our focus on technology excellence and innovation that benefits colleagues and clients.”
"Gone are the days IT could run as an entity unto itself. If IT isn't part of product development, or marketing, or customer service, your company risks falling behind in the era of digital business. At InformationWeek, we talk about this as 'IT Without Borders,' as we see the best IT leaders tearing down traditional borders to help every department leverage technologies such as data analytics, cloud, and mobility. The 2015 InformationWeek Elite 100 spotlights companies at which IT is not only inseparable from every department, it's pivotal to every customer experience," said InformationWeek editor Chris Murphy.
This is InformationWeek’s 27th year identifying and honoring the nation's most innovative users of information technology. The InformationWeek Elite 100 research tracks the technology-based investments, strategies, and results of some of the best-known organizations in the country. Unique among corporate rankings, the InformationWeek Elite 100 spotlights the power of business technology innovation.
