To be recognized for achieving the Migration Acceleration Specialization, on the heels of our Guidewire Cloud Upgrade Factory launch, showcases our commitment to partnering with our clients to unlock the full potential of Guidewire Cloud.”
Specializations are both regionally and globally based and require partners to demonstrate skills, knowledge, and competency in a specific Guidewire product or solution, as validated by Guidewire certification achievements and references. This new Migration Acceleration Specialization also extends to services and sales alignment through multiple workshops and documentation.
