IDC MarketScape Positions Guidewire as a Leader in its First Assessment for Worldwide Policy Administration Systems
Guidewire Software, Inc. (NYSE: GWRE), a provider of flexible software products to Property/Casualty (P/C) insurers, today announced that the company was positioned as a leader in the recently published, “IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Policy Administration Systems 2015 Vendor Assessment.”1 An excerpt from the report can be viewed here.
In its inaugural year, the IDC MarketScape assessment for policy administration systems evaluated the “capabilities and business strategies of 10 global vendors offering policy administration systems (PAS) to IT buyers.” The report aimed to facilitate more informed investment decisions and provide information on how the vendors featured can help insurers meet their business goals and technology expectations.
“A factor that propelled Guidewire to its position within our IDC MarketScape chart for its across-the-board strength and depth includes being built using state-of-the-art modern technology and architecture with no legacy or acquired code,” wrote Li-May Chew, associate research director, IDC and author of the report. “Guidewire has one of the more robust P/C PAS currently in the market, and such scalability and flexibility appeal to customers that are expanding and demand a solution that will be able to meet their future strategic requirements.”
“Guidewire is honored to be named a leader in the IDC MarketScape’s review of global Policy Systems,” said Brian Desmond, senior vice president, Marketing, Guidewire Software. “On behalf of the Guidewire team, I’d like to congratulate IDC on this inaugural report and to thank them for this recognition which in many ways reflects the success our customers are having. We believe P/C insurance plays a vital role in society and that the industry is changing at a pace never seen before. It is incumbent upon Guidewire to ensure our customers have the technology required so that they can execute on their promise to their customers over the long term.”
