“Despite the challenges of an unprecedented year, our Guidewire PartnerConnect Consulting partners continue to deliver excellence to our shared insurance customers, as evidenced by an impressive class of Q1 specialization recipients,” said Lisa Walsh, vice president, Alliances, Guidewire Software. “We are proud of our partners and extend our congratulations on their well-deserved specialization achievements, awarded for their proven competency and expertise in Guidewire products and solutions. We are also excited that partners have achieved a first specialization in LATAM and our new Testing Standards specialization.”
Specializations are both regionally and globally based and require partners to demonstrate skills, knowledge, and competency in a specific Guidewire product, as validated by Guidewire certification achievements. The attainment of specializations enables insurers to have more clarity and insight into which partners have proven capabilities in a region. In addition, partners with specializations can better promote their capabilities across Guidewire products and solutions.
Guidewire offers several specialization options for Consulting partner staff to differentiate themselves. Guidewire Education offers certifications for business analysts, quality analysts, and developers. Recently, we added new Certified Associate and Certified Ace designations for analysts, which help partners achieve the Guidewire Cloud Specialization and customers identify cloud-ready talent.

*The Global Delivery designation recognizes partners that have a large investment in the Guidewire practice, meet the skills requirements from a global perspective (not in region) and continue to meet the minimum number of references in region.
