Guidewire (NYSE: GWRE) today unveiled Guidewire Live, a suite of analytics apps to equip insurers with real-time insights embedded in core systems across the insurance lifecycle. The announcement arrives with the launch of Dobson*, the latest release of Guidewire's market-leading cloud platform, at the company's Connections customer conference. Guidewire Live and Dobson will be featured in the keynote address at Connections which will be livestreamed today at 8.30am PT and available on-demand.
Guidewire Live's smart-loop analytics power the apps that provide insurers with curated intel from an array of high-value data sources. Live Apps are integrated with core systems and enable more accurate decision-making for claims managers, adjusters, underwriters, risk managers and actuaries. Support for open-source analytical models (Bring Your Own Model), new data visualizations, integration of HazardHub property risk insights with PolicyCenter, and greater internationalization capabilities are just a few of the latest innovations included in Guidewire Live.
“Traditionally, insurers have relied upon historical data to make decisions, but in today’s quickly changing market, this is no longer enough,” said Roger Arnemann, senior vice president and general manager, Analytics at Guidewire. “If insurers cannot react to what is happening now, they can’t succeed in the future. We are thrilled to introduce Guidewire Live as the industry’s first smart-loop analytics solution that enables insurers to outsmart, outpace, and outperform in a rapidly changing environment.”
In addition, new advances in the Dobson release of the Guidewire Cloud Platform (GWCP) deliver more cloud agility than ever before and empower developers to drive innovation.
