Still dreaming of the glorious Florida weather! SAPPHIRENOW is almost here, so it's time to finalize my ‘Reasons to Attend’ (please see my prior blogs for more reasons @ blog1 and blog2).

We've got sessions covering every industry, but my focus is on what we'll be offering specifically for the insurance industry. So, take a break from the packing (I presume you’re attending!) and let's go over five final reasons to attend SAPPHIRENOW!

1. Learn to Navigate the New Employment Paradigm

We've witnessed a complete transformation of the employment landscape over the last 20 years. Almost every organization is likely dealing with a huge spectrum in its labor force today. Our one-time session Get the Most out of a Diverse Workforce That Includes Both Employees and Contingent Workers will be filled with information about how to get the most out of a workforce that's loaded with career workers, part-timers, contracted employees and contingent labor. You’ll learn how to leverage cloud platforms to unify the best practices for human resources, and use this new diversity to your advantage.

2. It's Time to Get Predictive

Today, the explosion in Big Data and cloud-enabled analytics has been enormous. It's a phenomenon with such significant impact that everyone needs to know how best to take advantage of it. The recurring session Achieve Success with Predictive Analytics for Banking and Insurance will address predictive analytics innovations. You’ll learn how the cloud can help you take the necessary steps to optimize networks and core insurance operations, so you’re ready for growth with an agile organizational design.

3. 2020-The 5 Year Regulatory Outlook

The mid-point of the decade seems like a great opportunity to have a look at where we'll be in five years when it comes to compliance and regulations, especially where the workforce is concerned. The recurring session Adapt to Regulations and Prepare for the Workforce of 2020 will focus on meeting the increasing demands of greater government supervision. With a forward-thinking, customer-centric solution, your workforce will be guided towards improved process execution. SAP's Workforce Performance Builder solution will be highlighted during the session.

4. All the Channels are On

Market insight and customer intimacy are crucial elements in such a forward-focused industry, so this one-time session Strengthen Your Company with a Competitive Omnichannel Environment is all about innovating the customer experience. You’ll learn how leading insurers manage their multi-channel environments to get unparalleled customer insight and position themselves to become a growth leader.

5. Learning to Make Real-Time Work for You

Compliance and regulatory concerns demand a huge amount of attention in the insurance industry, so it's time to find out how to deal with them in real-time. The one-time session Facilitate Real-Time Business Processes and Capabilities in Finance, Risk, and Regulatory Compliance will aim to help executives boost strategic value and optimize reporting. You’ll learn how SAP's Simple Finance can help free up resources and maximize efficiency for reconciliation efforts, financial performance and more.
