Use cases


To enable data operations and data-intensive applications to fully exploit the sustainability of BigDataStack and take full advantage of the developed technologies, the consortium has brought on board three industrial use cases.

Smart Insurance

Insurance companies increasingly need IT data-based solutions in order to address their needs about the provision of services according to the customer “tailored” requirements. The challenge is to allow insurance companies to better develop the customer management, by providing personalized services to the customer, as well as new corporate services for the handling of the customers’ profitability. A multi-channel scenario will be developed by GFT which will facilitate data analytics-powered smart insurance, providing a 360-degree view of the customer and personalized services. GFT will collaborate with HDI Assicurazioni, part of the Talanx Group of Hannover, for its adoption.
