    EP 14: Transformation of IT in the Insurance Industry w/ Kalpesh Sharma

    EP 14: Transformation of IT in the Insurance Industry w/ Kalpesh Sharma

    Traditional enterprise architecture gives the impression that documents and decisions are made in an ivory tower. Transformed EA, on the other hand, involves CIOs asking, “How can you deliver on my business outcomes?”
    In this episode of Unleash IT, we spoke with Kalpesh Sharma, Director and Principal Enterprise Architect at Capgemini, about IT transformation in the insurance industry.
    We talked about the operational resiliency of IT applications, business capability modelling for aligning strategic management goals, innovative new ways to sell insurance products by adopting open APIs, and the shift from project to product organizations.
