The largest peer-juried award for insurer CIOs and their teams.

The Datos Insights Insurance Technology Impact Awards recognize insurers for projects and programs that delivered real business impact through technology.

2024 Call For Nominations Is Now Open!

Each year, dozens of insurers submit information about recent technology projects for consideration, which Datos Insights condenses into case study format. Project case studies are reviewed anonymously by CIO members of the Datos Insights Insurance CIO Council, who vote for their favorites to win awards in the data, digital, core, and IT practice categories. Winning projects represent successful technology efforts that generated real business impact for insurers, as selected by peer CIOs who have direct experience leading complex technology initiatives.

Winners are promoted in a press release by Datos Insights and receive pride of place in Datos Insights’ annual Insurance Technology Case Study Compendium reports.

Insurers of all sizes and lines of business are welcome to submit projects for consideration. Solution providers may collaborate on submissions, but all projects must be submitted by insurers. The program is open to insurers in the U.S., Canada, and Bermuda.

Submissions for the 2024 Awards are open now through April 1, 2024. To request the submission form, or for any questions, please contact Harry Huberty, Research Director Insurance Practice, at [email protected].
