SAN MATEO, Calif., September 29, 2021

Guidewire Software, Inc. (NYSE: GWRE), today announced that 10 specializations have been awarded to four Guidewire PartnerConnect Consulting partners across the Americas (AMER) and Global.

The following PartnerConnect Consulting partners have been awarded specializations in the fourth quarter of Guidewire’s fiscal year 2021, for the following Guidewire products and solutions:

  • GFT: ClaimCenter; PolicyCenter; InsuranceSuite; Digital; and InsuranceSuite Integration – Global Delivery*
  • ITS: InsuranceNow – US
  • SBI: BillingCenter; and InsuranceSuite – LATAM
  • TCS: Testing Standards; and Self-Managed Upgrades – Global Delivery*

“We congratulate the PartnerConnect Consulting partners who have achieved Guidewire specializations in the fourth quarter,” said Lisa Walsh, vice president, Consulting Partner Alliances, Guidewire Software. “We’re delighted to reward and recognize these partners for their competency in Guidewire products and solutions and for delivering excellence to our shared insurance customers.”

Guidewire also announced the addition of two new regional cloud specializations for PartnerConnect Consulting Partners—the Cloud Ready and Cloud specializations—that will allow customers to understand which partners have achieved competency in region and encourage partners to ramp up their cloud implementation skills.

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. The attainment of specializations enables insurers to have more clarity and insight into which partners have proven capabilities in a specific region or product. In addition, partners with specializations can better promote their capabilities across Guidewire products and solutions. Over 100 specializations have now been achieved by Guidewire PartnerConnect Consulting partners.

Guidewire Education offers certifications for Consulting partner staff (including business analysts, quality analysts, and developers) to differentiate themselves. Certified Associate and Certified Ace Cloud designations were recently added for analysts, which help partners achieve the Guidewire Cloud Specialization and customers to identify cloud-ready talent.

*The Global Delivery designation recognizes partners that have a large investment in their Guidewire practice, meet the skills requirements from a global perspective (vs. a specific region) and continue to meet the minimum number of references in region.
