Single Source of Truth, Enterprise-wide Insight

Accelerate legacy replacement and fine-tune your business with an enterprise approach to your data

Overview

Data is the lifeblood of insurance because it is critical to the decision-making that drives growth and change across the company. Data is needed by executives as well as core operation users across policy, billing, and claims processes. It is also required for monitoring the business and fulfilling regulatory requirements.

Incorporating data management and business intelligence solutions during a core system transformation enables insurers to create a central data repository and better prepare core systems data for analysis. This approach accelerates legacy replacement, provides greater operational insight from the new core systems, and delivers enterprise-wide insights to fine-tune the business.

Guidewire DataHub

Guidewire DataHub™ is an insurance data store that unifies, standardizes, and stores data from the patchwork of an insurer’s systems as well as external sources. It enables insurers to create a single version of the truth through a detailed transaction repository where internal and third-party data is subject oriented, conformed, and given common context. This provides a staging platform to accelerate legacy replacement and meet the needs of both data producers and consumers.

  • Retire legacy systems: Insurance data often outlives the application that created it. DataHub migrates and persists data to create a single source of truth that accelerates core system migration and enables you to sunset or streamline legacy systems.
  • Future-proof data architecture: Business and IT data needs evolve over time. Yet data is often siloed and conflicting. DataHub decouples data sources from point-to-point connections with downstream systems, enabling the efficient replacement or addition of new systems to keep pace with change.
  • Improve data quality, completeness, and consistency: Data often lacks integrity, completeness, or consistency in legacy source systems. Legacy applications can be limited by line of business or functional area, and have proliferated over time. DataHub secures data integrity by gathering, analyzing, testing, and validating data by using proven methods and tools. As a result, data consumers can use the data with confidence.
