The vendor offers descriptions of the newest Guidewire PartnerConnect Solution Alliance members, who have joined as data partners and are already in use by Guidewire’s customers:
Amazon Web Services (Analytics on AWS) – As the cloud infrastructure powering Guidewire Cloud Platform, AWS provides insurers with the most scalable and cost-effective services for data movement, data storage, data lakes, analytics, business intelligence, and machine learning. AWS and Guidewire are already working together to use Guidewire Cloud Data Access and an Amazon EMR-based architecture to cost-effectively scale downstream data movement from Guidewire Cloud to populate insurers’ analytic applications.
Celonis – the global leader in process mining, according to Gartner, helps companies find and capture business value in their processes, enabling them to perform at levels they never thought possible. As part of the collaboration with Guidewire, Celonis analyzes InsuranceSuite data to identify process bottlenecks and to optimize workflows.
Hubio (regul8) – Hubio provides cloud services for P&C insurers to streamline their operations. regul8 is a regulatory reporting service that incorporates best practices and automation to better manage submission quality, corrections, and reconciliations.
Google Cloud (BigQuery & Analytics Hub) – BigQuery is Google Cloud’s full-managed enterprise data warehouse that helps customers manage and analyze data. Analytics Hub is the data exchange to allow for secure and efficient data assets sharing.
Guidewire reports that each partner has built an out-of-the-box connector to Guidewire Cloud that provides secure, low latency access to all Guidewire InsuranceSuite data, including all intra-daily changes.
