An Identity Provider for the Swiss Insurance Broker B2B Market

  • TYPE: Business Case Study DATE: Thursday, May 12, 2011 TIME: 16:30-17:30 LOCATION: Ammersee II

BrokerGate® is an identity provider in the Swiss insurance broker B2B market. It provides single sign-on and centralized user management across broker portals of multiple insurance companies. BrokerGate® was deployed by IG B2B for Insurers + Brokers, a registered association of insurance companies and insurance brokers active in Switzerland and in the Principality of Liechtenstein.

BrokerGate® went life in April, 2010, and currently allows 900 users to access the broker portals of 5 insurance companies after a single strong authentication. During the next years, another 15 insurers currently supporting this initiative will integrate their broker portals with BrokerGate®.

This presentation will cover both business aspects and technical aspects of BrokerGate®. It will give an overview of the project since its beginnings in 2007, and it will also address possible future developments and extensions.
