DENVER, CO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 21, 2007 -- Valen Technologies, the experts in predictive analytics for the insurance industry, today announced the release of the White Paper "So You Want to Use Predictive Models in Insurance - A White Paper on Getting Started with Predictive Analytics."

Before implementing a predictive analytics solution, insurance carriers must understand the purpose of the investment and how predictive analytics is unique to traditional risk assessment methods.

"The paper explores factors often overlooked, such as examining the long-term objectives and understanding the organizational impacts, from training to implementation."

"We commissioned this paper to help organizations not only understand the value of predictive analytics, but to lend expert and honest advice about the necessary steps and effects of predictive analytics adoption," said Valen Technologies, CEO, Dax Craig. "To attain a competitive advantage, an organization must understand how success is achieved through preparation and an accurate understanding of the technology."

"So You Want to Use Predictive Models in Insurance" explores not only the basics of predictive analytics technology, but the overall organizational impact.
