RGI Next – Back to the Future

“Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads!” This is how Dr. Emmett Brown, alias “Doc”, one of the protagonists of the famous movie “Back to the Future”, imagined the year 2015: a world where the innovation and the technology rule and the digital has conquered each part of the everyday lives.

This year also RGI wanted to come “back to the future” in its yearly RGI Next, the annual flagship event during which the insurance IT leader shows its vision and market trends. With the payoff “Back to the Future”, RGI Next took place on October, 16th, in the prestigious location of Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni, on the Como Lake, with about 200 delegates from the insurance market.

With the fourth edition RGI showed how the market trends and predictions presented during the last years events have been already implemented on RGI assets.

RGI CEO, Vito Rocca, welcomed the delegates showing how the word “Digital” is nearly a buzzword that influences every part of our daily life, from work one to private: in fact, if you google words as “digital” or “facebook”, the search engine gives a lot of results, as many as “house” or “food” words. RGI CEO has than introduced the “Tra-digital” approach: it is a milestone that, in a transition roadmap from the traditional business model to the digital business model, makes the traditional legacy systems coexist with the innovative omnichannel front ends.
