SCHIEDAM, The Netherlands and LUCCA, Italy, February 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Innovative and trendsetting healthcare insurance company in the Netherlands unifies consolidation, financial reporting and compliance requirements with Tagetik
Tagetik, a global provider of enterprise software solutions for Performance Management, Disclosure Management, Financial Governance and Business Intelligence, today announced that DSW Zorgverzekeraar (http://www.dsw.nl) is implementing Tagetik to deliver Solvency II compliance.
The Tagetik software, which is distributed by iNovasion in The Netherlands (http://www.tagetik.com/nl), replaced DSW's existing Excel-based reporting solution. DSW is now able to report its quarterly financials, including its investment and liquidity data, with the Tagetik application. The 2nd phase, planned for 2014, will automate the annual financial report and implement Tagetik's pre-packaged solution for Solvency II Pillar 1 and Pillar 3. With this, DSW will be empowered to report its external financials, internal and Solvency II reporting, from one unified Performance Management solution.
In early 2012, DSW Zorgverzekeraar decided to replace its Excel-based reporting environment and look for a tool that could meet all their requirements, including Solvency II. A software selection followed in 2012, during which Hulsker Finance & Business Consultancy (http://www.hulsker.nl) advised on the requirements of Solvency II. In 2013 the project was executed, led by Hulsker Finance & Business Consultancy.
"DSW Zorgverzekeraar conducted a comprehensive process to select the best software solution for Solvency II. They were looking for a solution that could get them running quickly with the starter kits and for a team of excellent people to work with," adds Marco van der Kooij, General Manager at Tagetik The Netherlands. "Tagetik outperformed the competition, leveraging rich, built-in functionality to support a global consolidation and reporting process as well as strong commitment from the management team to go the extra mile and make this project a great success."
"With DSW Zorgverzekeraar, Tagetik continues to strengthen its position as a global provider of solutions for financial services and insurance companies," explains Sabrina Rosati - Executive Vice President, Professional Services at Tagetik (http://www.tagetik.com/about/management/sabrina-rosati). "Tagetik leverages both the software and the industry experience to streamline financial reporting and disclosure processes as part of a complete, fast-to-implement Solvency II pre-packaged solution. This way, insurance companies can ensure 100% compliance with both current and future EIOPA requirements according to the principals of accuracy, completeness, timeliness, consistency, and traceability."

Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, rich desktop and tuned mobile experiences can now be created with a single codebase – without compromising functionality, performance or usability. In his session at DevOps Su...

The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership ab...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
