Keep pace with information
.
The transition from the era of centrally controlled data processing to the era of empowered users and worldwide networks created a technology knowledge gap for many insurance business professionals and IT professionals. Managers can no longer delegate all information processing decisions to technical staff. Understanding the IT environment has become essential to success in business. More than ever, technical IT staff requires knowledge of the business processes they serve.

Whether you are an IT professional seeking to better understand insurance business processes or an insurance professional seeking to grow your technology knowledge, AIT can help you manage technological growth while you advance your career.
