SaaS in Life and Pensions; Every Cloud… Are you in the Cloud? Or, just lost in the fog? Do you have the nagging feeling that everyone else is there and so should you?

If one reads the trade press, one can easily end up with the impression that everyone, but you, is floating on a high, looking down on the Ryanair flights passing below. In practice, the majority of core application implementations in the life and pensions industry have been on-premise, and are likely to remain that way in the short-term.

More regulation is not the answer

Pensions UK trustee Life and Pensions regulation

More regulation is not the answer I went to see my consultant prior to an operation on my shoulder. He gave me two options and then asked me which one I wanted to take.

However the one area that is often overlooked when considering a case for outsourcing is compliance. The regulator is paying a lot of attention to the issue of where responsibility lies and it is worth being sure that, before you decide to outsource, you know exactly where you stand on this issue.
