Insurance Software Deal Trends 2005-2006Reports Published by Celent
Fourth edition of report suggests that insurance carriers are active software buyers.
The results of Celent's fourth annual deal trends study show that life/health and property/casualty carriers are seeking software to help them solve business problems across all key business functions.
"Core systems and document management are particular focus areas," says senior analyst Craig Weber, author of the latest Celent reports, Insurance Software Deal Trends: 2005-2006. "But most carriers are looking for ways to improve services and operational efficiency across the board."
Weber notes that the average number of deals by quarter rose 42% from 2005 to 2006. "No one is standing pat in this environment, which means that we should see significant advances in service and efficiency over the coming year," he adds.
The report (available in Life/Health and Property/Casualty editions) examines 1,405 deals from 92 vendors. The deals are analyzed by category, customer type, and other factors. The following are examples of major findings detailed in the report:
- Comparing 2006 to 2005, the average number of deals per quarter rose in all four metacategories.
- The total pool of deals was distributed fairly evenly across each of the five carrier tiers defined for this report.
- Forty-three percent of the deals analyzed were between vendors and totally new customers.
