Insurance Research

Celent's insurance research covers a variety of products and services.  Our internationally-based analysts focus on information technology and strategy issues affecting global, regional, and local life and property/casualty insurers. Key areas include IT management issues, online marketing and electronic distribution strategies, managing multiple distribution channels, core processing technologies like policy administration systems and claims handling, and the effects of new technologies like Web services and XML.

Celent reports tend to fall into one or more of the following categories: trends analysis, vendor evaluations, case studies, or market data.

Celent offers two insurance membership services: Life Insurance and Property/Casualty Insurance.

Model Insurer Awards

Every year, Celent recognizes excellence in insurance technology through our Model Insurer Awards.  The Model Insurer Awards are designed to try to answer this deceptively simple question:

"What would it look like for an insurer to do everything right with today's technology?"

Model Insurer components help insurers improve performance and meet market demands. In general, they represent the way things should be done.

You can view past winners of the Model Insurer Awards and the Model Insurer Asia Awards.
