FOSTER CITY, Calif., November 30, 2016

Guidewire Software, Inc. (NYSE: GWRE), a provider of software products to Property/Casualty (P/C) insurers, announced today that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Financial Services Competency status. This designation recognizes Guidewire for delivering effective solutions and providing deep expertise to help P/C insurers with their core system implementation projects on the AWS Cloud. Guidewire InsurancePlatform™, consisting of core systems, data and analytics, and digital engagement products, is supported by AWS.

Achieving the AWS Financial Services Competency differentiates Guidewire as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member that has demonstrated relevant technical proficiency and proven customer success, delivering solutions seamlessly in the AWS Cloud environment. To receive the designation, APN Partners must possess deep expertise in the AWS platform and undergo an assessment of the security, performance, and reliability of their solutions.

“Guidewire is pleased to be one of the first AWS Partner Network members to achieve AWS Financial Services Competency status,” said Ali Kheirolomoom, chief product officer, Guidewire Software. “Our team is dedicated to helping P/C insurers replace their legacy systems, adapt to market changes, deliver on their business objectives, and optimize costs to increase return on their investments by leveraging the agility of the AWS Cloud.”

The AWS Cloud is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions for banking and payments, capital markets, and insurance organizations of all sizes, from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the Financial Services Partner Competency Program to help customers identify Consulting and Technology APN Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.

Guidewire InsurancePlatform combines three elements—core operations, data and analytics, and digital engagement—that work together to enhance insurers’ ability to respond to industry changes and better engage and empower their customers, agents, and employees.
