The Asskura Model is a tool that allows composite, life and private-healthcare insurers to better manage their IT projects. It is based on more than 25 man years of experience in IT projects with more than 20 companies. The Asskura Model encompasses a best practice data and process model. It can be consulted to measure a company’s business processes with this model and to optimise them in projects. The Asskura model thus addresses the efficiency of the IT project portfolio from the perspective of the company and at the same time helps to guide individual projects to success.
