Launching Artesian Connect, with the help of astronaut Tim Peake

If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that humans are hardwired to connect. So we were delighted to have been joined by over 500 peers, customers, fans, prospects, commentators, influencers, and none other than astronaut Tim Peake, for our Connect21 Hope and Innovation Virtual Summit last week.

In his keynote* Tim Peake talked about his experiences on the International Space Station (ISS) in 2016, the scientific research he was involved in, and of course his infamous spacewalk.

He entertained with personal stories such as running the London marathon at zero gravity, how he marvelled at the wonders of Earth from above, and even his hilarious close encounter experience that turned out to be anything but alien.

He also talked about his hopes for a second mission as part of the Artemis programme, and his views on when humans will set foot on Mars – sooner than you might think!

Importantly, Tim also talked about the importance of innovation and harnessing the power of data to keep pushing boundaries.

He also shared his views on topics such as sustainability, learning from mistakes, adaptability, confronting fears, the importance of great training and planning, and building a resilient mind-set.

But what struck most, however, was that he considers his greatest achievement in space to be the collaboration and connection between his fellow ISS crew.

The power of connected know-how

In today’s hyper-connected world, the smartest organisations are not the ones with simply the smartest individuals, but rather those with the ability to rapidly aggregate and leverage their collective intelligence, or ‘know-how’ as we like to call it.

Intelligence and insight is the transformative energy of your business. When you tap into and more importantly optimise the power of your collective know-how, you are poised to innovate, grow, overcome risks, rise to opportunities, and make smarter, faster decisions.

The next-level of business engagement through Connect™

Leading challenger bank, Metro Bank, has reported that using Artesian Connect™ they’ve been able to automate many aspects of their operational process for on-boarding new customers or screening the back-book in a fraction of the time – at scale.

“We started working with Artesian to explore ways we could introduce greater efficiency to the customer onboarding journey. We loved the idea of being able to aggregate data from a number of different sources and map our risk appetite to Artesian’s rules framework, to flag issues immediately. The result meant we could deliver a process which in some cases was 94% quicker than our existing one.” Ronan Heeran – Financial Crime Risk & Control Manager at Metro Bank


Underwriting just got more connected than a Tesla

QBE, one of the world’s top 20 insurance and reinsurance companies, has reported that they’ve been able to automate many aspects of the commercial underwriting process which touch external unstructured data, including new COVID-specific risk data sets, which Artesian ConnectTM could easily ingest.

“The flexibility and configurability of Artesian’s platform enables QBE to be proactive, rather than reactive, to changes in data for client assessment.” David Jones – Director of Underwriting at QBE
