Accenture announces Duck Creek Acquisition
14 July 2011
This is a great move for Accenture and Duck Creek. And it will create real benefits for global property & casualty / general insurers. Duck Creek brings its well regarded, modern, and highly configurable policy administration and rating systems to the growing Accenture Software unit. Duck Creek will benefit from Accenture's global global insurance client base and relationships. Accenture Software's current portfolio of product configuration, underwriting, claims, and policy administration will be strengthened by the addition of Duck Creek's software, as well as by Duck Creek's strong market acceptance in the past few years. Bringing one successful organization into another always brings challenges, but both groups have good people who should be able to recognize and work through the inevitable product and organizational issues.
