Prudential’s innovation agenda shifted into high gear when CEO Charlie Lowrey was appointed a year or so before the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Goodman assumed her CIO role soon afterward and set a technology strategy with six fundamental business goals:

  • Enhance customer, adviser, and employee experiences.
  • Accelerate marketing and distribution capabilities.
  • Drive growth through diversification and differentiation.
  • Harness data to enhance decision-making.
  • Increase operational efficiency.
  • Reimagine talent and culture for the future.

AI, cloud, and advanced analytics are among the tools the company is using to support those goals. In the third quarter of 2020, Prudential launched a new service to streamline its account withdrawals. Less call center involvement, reduced paperwork, and greater efficiencies were among the anticipated benefits.

The company acquired Assurance IQ in late 2019 and was able to launch SimplyTerm in less than five months. It is determined to leverage its enhanced development and data capabilities to reduce time to market.

“We’ve had some typical blocking and tackling to do, including realigning our workforce, embracing cloud and other technologies, and scaling our Agile and DevOps capabilities,” Goodman says. “We want to make sure everything we do is outcomes- and customer-focused. Toward that end, we’re trying to build a lot of our delivery as a cross-functional capability so the business and technology can come together to achieve the right customer outcomes.”

Prudential’s chief technology officer shares her top advice for other tech leaders. Prudential anticipates saving $750 million by the end of 2023 through its transformation and other initiatives. “This is a marathon, not a sprint,” says CEO Janice Goodman.
