Measurable value - In most of the areas we ask about, insurance respondents to PwC’s 2023 Cloud business survey are still waiting to see cloud technology deliver measurable value to their organizations. On the positive side of the ledger, moving to the cloud has already helped more than half of them improve their decision making and cyber posture, innovate in products and services, and improve resilience. However, less than half say they’ve seen measurable value in seven other areas, most notably in improved profitability and increased agility, at only 38% and 39%, respectively.
Industry cloud challenges - In addition, most insurance respondents – in line with other industries - are waiting to see benefits from using industry clouds compared to general purpose cloud solutions. While slightly more than half have gained process and workflow efficiencies, a majority hasn't observed benefits in the seven other areas we listed. Of note, only 23% of insurance respondents say they've enjoyed benefits in tools and technology to integrate industry-specific common data models, connectors and APIs. This is significantly lower than in banking/capital markets (43%), considerably lower than the all-industry average (35%) and lower than asset/wealth management (28%), indicating that industry cloud providers and carriers have some way to go to match solutions with expectations.
Talent gaps - Moreover, at 38%, insurance respondents perceive talent gaps as a considerably higher barrier to achieving measurable value from cloud technologies than in the all-industry average (26%), asset/wealth management (28%) and banking/capital markets (22%). The fact this barrier has affected a significant minority of insurers reflects broader concerns we've heard from the industry about competing for talent in today's robust job market.
