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."

What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Bradley Holt, a Developer Advocate with IBM Cloud Data Services, discussed...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
