Join Hortonworks at Insurance Telematics Canada

Hortonworks subscribers across all major industries use Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) to power advanced analytics applications for data discovery and predictive analytics. The insurance industry uses Hadoop to drive this type of innovation for usage-based insurance (UBI).

Cindy Maike is the GM for Insurance Solutions at Hortonworks, and later this month she will present on big data for UBI at Insurance Telematics Canada 2015. The conference begins on April 23rd in Toronto, and Cindy will present with Tammy Chen from Towers Watson and Gerry Lee from QA Consultants on “Data Makes the (UBI) World Go Round.”

Here’s a preview of what Cindy and the panel will discuss.


The heart of UBI is data. Any insurer needs to understand how to capture and store the telematic sensor data that powers UBI products. Cindy will answer questions about how to collect, store, and use that data in Hadoop.

Specifically, Cindy plans to discuss:

  • Data capture – How to collect enough streaming data with sufficient granularity to show regulators that certain behaviors are predictive of risk
  • Hadoop in the Cloud – Hadoop storage options in the cloud can reduce costs, increase your storage capacity and ultimately improve the bottom line of your UBI program
  • Advanced analytics – Detailed sensor data stored in Hadoop can help you understand each individual policy holder—from driving habits to shopping preferences—equipping you with key insights to improve your customer relationships
