MIT CISR Research Poll: IT spend on Run vs. Build
One measure that many CIOs use to assess IT efficiency is the percentage of IT spend on Run vs. Build. MIT CISR research has followed this trend as IS units have been reporting decreasing percentages allocated to Run. But as cloud and other developments shift funding from build to run, the view of Run vs. Build may shift. Later this year, we’ll provide an update on IT portfolios. In the meantime, you can read past findings on this topic in “Top Performing Firms are More Effective at Digital Reuse” from October 2010.

We’re conducting a survey to identify work practices in P&C Insurance Claims Processing that enable better use of information and better claims processing outcomes. The survey, which will run through the end of May, is part of our “Working Smarter” study, and examines how claims adjusters use data to improve their claims processing decisions.
Claims processing is an ideal area in which to test the ideas we have developed in our case work over the last three years. We expect to learn:
• Which management practices are most effective in promoting “working smarter”
• The extent to which claims processing organizations are working smarter, and
• How working smarter impacts claims processing performance
If you are involved with claims processing at a P&C Insurer, especially if you are the Head of claims processing, or a member of senior management, please participate! Just click here: http://bit.ly/MIT_CISRSurvey. The survey takes less than 15 minutes to complete, and all data you provide will be kept completely confidential as specified by MIT rules.
If you are not in any of these roles, please pass this link along to a colleague in your company, or in other companies, who is. Stay tuned for a research briefing with results!
