A new breed of insuretech companies is connecting with customers online rather than through traditional brokers and agents. They offer a highly personalized, on-demand experience with individualized premiums and self-service claims management that’s more convenient and cost-effective for customers than traditional insurance.

That’s why a growing share of IT budgets have been allocated to cloud services and technology.
