"I am excited about this opportunity to work for ISCS," said Barry Ralston, AVP, business intelligence for ISCS. "I am very committed to revolutionizing insurance with data, and considering SurePower Innovation's strong architecture combined with insurers' need for deeper insight into data, I see great potential here to further improve ISCS's analytics capabilities and help prepare insurers for the future."

Ralston is a published author in the field of software usage, and a patented creator of Zip Rator, a method of providing an insurance rate comprising storing combinations rates based on fields of information in a database, receiving a piece of information relating to one of the fields of information, and pulling an insurance rate based on a pre-calculated average of premiums for individuals.

Ralston's skills will help ISCS strengthen SurePower Innovation's analytic and business intelligence (BI) capabilities to enable customers to access and understand critical core insurance data, and therefore, make better-informed business decisions.
