Data visualization helps to better communicate complex statistical insights to co-workers.   And the better those insights are communicated, the more it encourages others to use analytics in business planning and decision making. 

Also, sometimes insurance companies will share these insights with consumers.  For example, a former professor of mine called her insurance company to find out which type of car had was the least likely to get broken into in her school parking lot.  And that was the car she chose to buy for work purposes.

Visual tools certainly bring data as close to being interactive as possible. Its bad enough that often data can be overwhelming and confusing, but when served in the right presentation format, the negatives of overload are certainly mitigated. Especially when it comes to the more complex subjects, as we browse through statistics, its often easier to stop and look closer when data is structured in graphics

Hi Brian, thanks -- and I'm glad you're enjoying the content. It sounds like you might be involved in the insurance industry as well, when you write "I see a lot of 90s type models still being applied to 2013 risks" or are you talking outside of the insurance field? Would visual analytics benefit you and your company?

Beth,

You write about the coolest stuff.  I want to see more analytics stuff here.  I would love to meet the people who are building these models and learn from them . Keep it up.  My neighbor works for XL so I am going to touch base with him.

I applaud Kim Holmes for taking on challenging work, because I see a lot of 90s type models still being applied to 2013 risks.

 

Brian

If I were CEO of an insurance company, I'd be all over Big Data. Sure, the carrots are significant, but what about preventing fraud? The opportunity here is huge, as I write in Too Big to Ignore.

It Pays to Keep Insurance Fraud in Check
While 97% of insurers say that insurance fraud has increased or remained the same in the past two years, most of those companies report benefits from anti-fraud technology in limiting the impact of fraud, including higher quality referrals, the ability to uncover organized fraud, and improve efficiency for investigators.
