Guidewire Announces Cortina Release Introducing New Integration Framework

Guidewire Software, Inc. announced the latest release of its market-leading cloud platform. Cortina will be unveiled at Connections Reimagined on May 11 and 12.* To register, visit connections.guidewire.com.

Cortina’s event-based, API-first Integration Framework accelerates the connection of Guidewire to other services enabling teams to automate more workflows, driving faster innovation. Closed-loop analytics delivers specific insights across the insurance lifecycle to help claims and underwriting professionals make better, faster decisions. And platform innovation across Application Services empowers developers to experiment and build faster to keep pace with evolving customer demands.

“The significant platform innovations in Cortina set a new bar for openness and reinvent how easy it is to integrate to Guidewire,” said Diego Devalle, chief product development officer, Guidewire. “Customers can quickly capitalize on market opportunities, handle claims in new ways, and offer new products in record time —like usage-based insurance with our recently announced UBI Solution—while developers are empowered to further innovate on top of Guidewire. We are, in essence, simplifying the business of insurance technology.”

Expanded Application Services makes integrations and other InsuranceSuite interactions easier to build and maintain.

  • Guidewire Cloud Console—Enhanced tooling to enable IT self-service with provisioning and deployment, as well as database backups and restores. What used to take two people 20 days now takes one person 15 minutes to provision and deploy.
  • Guidewire Claims Autopilot**—Cloud-based claims service that allows for an automation-first approach to claims handling, enabling insurers to leverage artificial intelligence, analytics, and digital technologies to deliver better customer experiences, while lowering operating expenses.

Insurers are empowered to make better-informed decisions with closed-loop analytics enabled by Data Studio.**

  • Closed-loop analytics—A new holistic solution, Initial Segmentation for Auto/Motor Claims in ClaimCenter, improves claims processing efficiency.
  • Data Studio**—A new data management tool to access, create, and publish business-ready data sets to enable insurers to leverage their data wherever it’s needed.

Integration Framework reduces the complexity of integrations across the P&C lifecycle.

  • InsuranceSuite Cloud API expansion—Broader functional coverage enables apps to do more using the APIs. Further improving the Guidewire developer experience, the ClaimCenter API reference is now publicly available for developers to explore at developer.guidewire.com.
  • Integration Gateway**—A new integration service that orchestrates calls to and from InsuranceSuite and third-party applications. Reduced integration complexity enables developers to drive more innovation.
  • Application Events**—A new integration service enabling developers to easily publish event streams from InsuranceSuite that “push” data and events to external systems. This service automates more processes and enables insurers to create their own differentiating ecosystem of connected apps and services.

InsuranceNow is now on Guidewire Cloud Platform. InsuranceNow customers can benefit from Guidewire’s cloud platform investments, delivering on the company’s commitment to improve the experiences of all 400+ Guidewire customers with improved observability and auto-scaling capabilities.

Since the launch of Aspen in May 2020, the company has been increasing the value of its platform with twice-yearly releases. Insurers are selecting Guidewire Cloud to upgrade from self-managed deployments, power greenfield implementations, and transition their core business. Thirty-three Guidewire InsuranceSuite customers have selected Guidewire Cloud and 12 are live.

Guidewire was recently positioned as a Leader for the sixth consecutive time in Gartner, Inc.'s Magic Quadrant for P&C Core Platforms, North Americafor InsuranceSuite and was named a Challenger for the fourth consecutive time in the same report for InsuranceNow. In addition, Guidewire has been positioned as a Leader in Gartner, Inc.’s most recent Magic Quadrant for Non-Life Insurance Platforms, Europe,for the third consecutive year for InsuranceSuite.
