leverage data insights to help increase its responsiveness to its
customers and business partners
American Modern is currently implementing Guidewire InsuranceSuite™ as part of a broader business transformation initiative and will be implementing DataHub and InfoCenter for its Personal Lines business. The organization selected DataHub and InfoCenter to help make data easier to access and understand for its customers, which includes both internal operations and agents. American Modern wanted a data model that aligns with P/C industry standards and best-practices and enables standardized documentation of its data to be created and maintained.
“Ultimately, we expect that Guidewire DataHub and InfoCenter will give us a single source of truth in terms of data,” said

“We see our information as one of the most valuable assets of the organization. Our ability to readily harness insights from that information in order to be more responsive to our customers and business partners is a critical component in the achievement of our goals and strategies,” said

Guidewire DataHub™ is an operational data store that unifies, standardizes, and stores data from the typical patchwork of an insurer’s systems as well as from external sources. This provides the single source of truth to feed core systems, business intelligence solutions, and downstream systems such as general ledger, regulatory, and tax reporting. DataHub decouples data consumption from data production, thus insulating downstream data consumers from changes in the behavior and configuration of upstream data producers. With DataHub, insurers can more easily retire legacy systems, ensure business continuity during core system transformation, and add new applications in the future.
Guidewire InfoCenter™ is a business intelligence warehouse optimized for the Property/Casualty industry to provide information in easy to use formats for business intelligence, analysis, and enhanced decision making. Pre-integration with Guidewire products significantly reduces implementation time, risk and maintenance overhead, allowing customers to focus on configuration for their unique needs. It is compatible with a variety of industry-standard business intelligence tools.
