Storing too much information in the insurance industry?
by Yoram Eden, Boaz Ronen, Israel Spiegler
International Journal of Computer Applications in Technology (IJCAT), Vol. 9, No. 2/3, 1996

Abstract: The paper challenges the premise that all data collected in the insurance industry must be stored in the database. This paper applies a cost/benefit model that allows for testing and assessing of data items currently stored in the database, as well as providing a 'to store or not to store' decision policy regarding prospective data. An empirical case study of a life insurance agency is presented through which the ideas are illustrated.
