Swiss Re Corporate Solutions and Hitachi Europe Ltd. today announced a partnership to launch integrated insurance-based offerings for the digital era. As organisations increasingly depend on Artificial Intelligence (AI) powered automation for critical business processes

and operations, corporations need to manage new 'digital risks'. To address this need, Swiss Re and Hitachi are launching a new industry solution that helps organisations accelerate their digital transformation while minimising the risk.

Initially focused on the manufacturing machinery and transport industries, the joint solution will help customers embrace AI and cutting-edge technologies to maximise productivity, increase automation, implement contactless operations and reduce downtime, while also insuring them against any unexpected business disruption.

Building on more than 200 years of combined risk knowledge and IT and operational technology (OT) experience, the two companies are well positioned to bring this unique offering to the market, with the first organisations launching in October 2020.
