NEW YORK – AXA, a leader in providing life insurance and annuity products, sponsored and hosted three Data Driven NYC events – Meetups bringing together the leading thinkers in the New York City data scene.

During the May event, Louis DiModugno, AXA US Chief Data and Analytics Officer, joined Data Driven NYC founder and organizer, Matt Turck, on stage to discuss the stance of data and analytics in the insurance industry and how AXA is using this new information.

“It is important for us to participate in the emerging data and analytics dialog by adding the insurance perspective into the mix,” said Louis DiModugno, AXA US Chief Data and Analytics Officer. “Insurance companies use and rely on data every day - it is integral to our business. My team and I are continually looking at the newest technology and advances in data and analytics and considering how we can utilize the information to make the customer experience less intrusive and a better overall experience. The Data Driven events bring us in contact with the newest trends and help us network – an equally beneficial aspect – as we continue to build out the team and expand the AXA data and analytics skillset.”

The next Data Driven NYC event will take place at the AXA Auditorium (787 Seventh Avenue, New York, NY) on Monday, June 13 and will feature the following speakers:

  • Nitay Joffe, Founder and Chief Technology Officer of ActionIQ (next-generation data platform for marketing and consumer data) 
  • Adam Kanouse, Chief Technology Officer of Narrative Science (transforms data into meaningful and insightful narratives) 
  • Neha Narkhede, Founder and Chief Technology Officer of Confluent (real-time data platform built around Apache Kafka) 
  • Christopher Nguyen, Founder and CEO of Arimo (data intelligence platform)
