End-To-End Approach to Guidewire Implementation
Our Guidewire Agile Implementation Methodology (GAIM) helps insurers proactively respond to market disruptions by fundamentally transforming the IT environment.
Cognizant’s Advisory and Consulting services provide business and operating model definition, program roadmap definition, business case development, business process reengineering, execution strategy and program management.
We integrate human-centered digital design into Guidewire portals to optimize customer experience through sales and distribution management, marketing automation and BPM solutions and services.
Implementation includes configuration of user interface, business rules and workflow as well as integration of the Guidewire Suite with external systems. We also offer solution accelerators for standard integrations and integrated Center of Excellence (CoE) support.
Cognizant employs a business data migration strategy that efficiently extracts and migrates legacy data and provides report rationalization.
Our Guidewire CoE provides end-to-end testing including systems, integration, stabilization, automation, performance and user acceptance testing. We use proprietary frameworks, tools and solution accelerators coupled with proven QA processes and best practices.
Cognizant’s Upgrade Factory carries out technical upgrades of implemented functionality in the Guidewire application. We upgrade application databases, implement screen configurations and business rules, and build the Guidewire portion of interfaces to other applications. We use our CoE and Lab environments to upgrade the installed client Guidewire software to the new version and fully test and resolve defects.
Cognizant provides product monitoring, support and maintenance, regulatory and functional enhancements, new product rollout and M&A integration support. We do all of this at scale.
