I’m excited that the ski season is about to start where my family and I live in Northern California. I’m even more excited we’ve arrived at Banff, the second release in Guidewire’s bi-annual release cadence! In June we released Aspen, the most important release in Guidewire’s history, where we introduced Guidewire Cloud Platform and reimagined core platforms. ... Read More >

My name is Brian Desmond and I serve as the CMO at Guidewire, which provides an industry platform for property and casualty (P&C) insurers. In a previous blog post, I defined what an industry platform is and why it’s such a big idea for the P&C industry.

“Is my data more secure in the cloud than it is on premises―or less secure?” That’s one of those million-dollar questions, isn’t it? Fortunately, we can easily answer that question in a single blog post…... Read More >
I love technology. It’s one of the reasons I live in Silicon Valley (aka Nerdvana). And although I’d like to say I’m young for my age, I’m old enough to remember LBPC (life before personal computing). Amongst the valley’s cultural attractions, my favorite is the Computer History Museum. As I tour the displays, I remember working with equipment and systems that are called artifacts today....
