Of all the applications of Big Data, insurance companies demand to exploit the value of their data to enhance their relationship with their customer, from the acquisition to loyalty.

Although for the general public Big Data is still a new concept, in the business world Big Data has long ceased to be a novelty. In fact, many companies have already started to collect the first results derived from the decision-making based purely on data. As in any other technological disruption, there are certain sectors that are always within the "early adopters" such as banking and telecommunications. This is due to the fact that they are sectors with great competition, in which no actor can afford to be outdated and with a large financial muscle, which allows them to invest heavily in technology.
