The release’s expanded availability of API-driven design and integrations, and pre-built content exemplifies a changing industry paradigm focused on interoperability and microservices.
Among the highlights of Aspen are visual product design, embedded analytic capabilities and cloud-native services such as rating, rules engines and data capabilities.
The former Salesforce EVP talks about his first ten months at Guidewire, and how the Aspen release represents a milestone on the vendor’s journey to becoming a cloud platform company.
The ex-Salesforce EVP will support the continuity of Guidewire’s company culture and values while driving its transformation from a software package vendor to a cloud service provider.
The release heralds enhancements to Guidewire’s Core, Data, Digital, and All-in-One product families that the vendor presents as examples of ‘smarter,’ ‘faster,’ and ‘more connected.’
The newly renamed Guidewire Predictive Analytics, which will be available as two new offerings within Guidewire’s Data and Analytics product family, will focus on claims, underwriting, and pricing.
Following a brief note of support from outgoing CEO Marcus Ryu, Rosenbaum spoke about how cloud could help to address Guidewire’s clients’ priorities.
The regional P&C insurance group is leveraging Guidewire Core and Data products to modernize its business and increase efficiency.
The insurer’s CIO Gregory Owen says that InsuranceSuite will allow Western Reserve Group to expand agency self-service options and help prepare the carrier for future growth.
Ryu reflects on Guidewire’s history, his new role as chairman, what Mike Rosenbaum brings as CEO, and what the future of the insurance industry may hold.
