Cloud adoption continues to gain momentum as insurers look for a competitive advantage. In addition to benefiting from capabilities provided by newer, cloud-enabled applications, aligning a technology ecosystem of applications that integrates, scales, and adapts to changing market conditions amplifies the value of adopting cloud solutions like Guidewire and Smart Communications.
