    REPORT: Use Customer Journeys To Guide Your Digital Insurance Strategy

    Processes: The Digital Insurance Strategy Playbook

    November 29, 2017 Oliwia Berdak, Joana van den Brink-Quintanilha

This report was originally published in November 2016; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy, most recently in October 2017.
