We know who we are.
Guidewire is a software company. 

Our customers are insurance companies, and insurance software is surprisingly complex, mission-critical to the business, difficult to get right, and actually a lot of fun to work on. We provide a platform based on three elements: core processing, data and analytics, and digital engagement (or “core,” “data,” and “digital” for short), which work together to strengthen insurers’ ability to engage and empower their customers, agents, and employees. We serve more than 200 customers in more than 20 countries, and have completed or are in the process of completing more than 300 Guidewire product implementations.

To solidify our successful implementation track record, we developed the Consulting Enablement role to act as the liaison between Professional Services, QA, and Development during our implementations.
