Germania Insurance partners with Guidewire to migrate to cloud for expanded digital capabilities

Germania Insurance, a leading property and casualty (P&C) insurer based in Texas, and Guidewire, a prominent software provider for the insurance industry, have announced Germania’s successful migration of their Guidewire InsuranceSuite self-managed environment to Guidewire Cloud.

The principal aim of this strategic move is to boost digital capabilities, introduce novel innovations to Germania’s members, and simplify IT operations. Germania has transitioned most of its business lines to Guidewire Cloud, with plans to incorporate commercial general liability and business auto in the near future.

Germania Insurance, founded in 1896, offers auto, property, and life insurance for a wide array of Texans. It is the most significant farm mutual insurance company in Texas and one of the top organisations for independent agents. Guidewire, on the other hand, is trusted by P&C insurers worldwide for its platform that combines digital, core, analytics, and AI functionalities to deliver its cloud service.

The shift to Guidewire Cloud is aimed at enabling Germania to spend less time on maintenance and focus more on digital and customer-facing initiatives. Germania’s executive vice president and chief information officer, Tim Tarnowski, said, “Guidewire Cloud enables us to stay current on Guidewire’s latest technology, enhances our business continuity with 24/7 availability, and provides better security and resilience against external risks.”

Prasad Puligundla, Germania’s director of application development and DevOps, added, “Since moving to Guidewire Cloud, the cloud operations monitoring capabilities are helping us better address product and customer issues. Also, we are able to leverage vendor integrations to augment our business processes and enhance our customer digital experience.”

Michael Mahoney, head of services at Guidewire, congratulated Germania on its successful cloud deployment. He said, “We are excited to see the company transform its business in the cloud to continue its 127-year commitment of offering innovations to its members and providing the insurance Texans trust.”
