IDMA Mission Statement

The Insurance Data Management Association, Inc. (IDMA) is an independent, non-profit, professional learned association dedicated to increasing the level of professionalism, knowledge, and visibility of insurance data management.

Value Proposition

With every advance in technology, the value of data increases. Evolving and new technologies make sharing data fairly simple, but if bad information moves through a process, the costs grow exponentially at each step. Data must be managed to ensure quality, to ensure maximum benefit to the organization. If Senior Managers receive bad data, how can they properly manage? If Marketing receives incorrect information, the dollar value of lost opportunities can only be guessed. In the realm of regulatory or statutory reporting, bad data may create a liability for your organization. All of the Actuarial, Claims, Compliance, Finance, and Information Technology functions need reliable data to work with. The data manager's function is to provide other managers with the information they need to fulfill their role.
