From the Senior Vice President

Got a hankerin' for core systems insights? You've come to the right place.

Our policy admin ABCD report series has kicked off with the publication of the European general version. The North American versions (personal lines, commercial lines, life and annuity), the European life/annuity version, and the Asian versions are in full production mode and will be published soon. It's a ton of work, but the resulting body of knowledge is stunning.

There's also a report pending that updates the business case discussion for legacy renewal. Karen Monks and I have enjoyed conversations with many of you about that one.

For more case studies and networking opportunities, please consider attending Creative Disruption: A Core Systems Strategy Workshop in Boston on November 3. It's free for Celent clients, and I am excited about the dynamic day that is emerging.

There are a few seats left at our insurer-only Peer Networking Event at Allied Insurance in Des Moines on August 26. The topic? Evolving Cloud Computing and Legacy Modernization Strategies.

It all adds up to an amazing, timely view of core systems in all major markets. This is what many of you are after right now, and we're happy we can deliver.
