FOSTER CITY, Calif. - Tuesday, June 10th 2014 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE) Guidewire Software, Inc. (NYSE:GWRE), a provider of flexible software products to Property/Casualty (P/C) insurers, today announced that it has been positioned as a “Leader” in Gartner, Inc.'s first “Magic Quadrant for Property and Casualty Insurance Claims Management Modules1.” Guidewire was positioned highest on the ability to execute axis and furthest on the completeness of vision axis in the report. The report can be viewed here.

As the first Gartner Magic Quadrant for the P/C insurance space, the report evaluates seven global vendors that have qualified for inclusion in the claims management module market.

“Global demand for stand-alone claims management modules decreased in 2013, but sales of claims modules within suites tripled,” wrote Jeff Haner, principal research analyst, Insurance, Gartner and author of the report. “Investment in core system modernization remains high, and a fast-growing majority of insurers are electing to license claims modules within modular core solution suites.”

“The Guidewire team is honored to be named a leader by Gartner in the Claims Management Magic Quadrant, and we are intent on continuing our track record of innovation,” said Brian Desmond, vice president, Marketing, Guidewire Software. “Our customers use Guidewire products to replace their legacy systems and transform their business; these are challenging projects no matter how good the technology that serves them. We work collaboratively with our customers, and we view this report as recognition of the success achieved collectively by the Guidewire community. We thank our customers for choosing Guidewire as their partner and are humbled by their overwhelming support.”
