"The blog gives us another means of delivering the Celent viewpoint," says Craig Weber, senior vice president of Celent's Insurance Group. "Our industry is evolving rapidly, and we wanted to share our perspectives in a convenient, real time, informal manner."
"Our global team of insurance analysts will all contribute posts to the blog regularly, which is a unique value that only Celent can provide," adds Jeff Goldberg, senior analyst and creator of the blog. "Of course we'll still reach out to clients and research contacts the way we always have, and clients will see the same steady flow of reports as always. But anyone who tracks insurance industry issues will gain additional Celent insights via the blog."
Topics that already have been addressed by blog posts include the impact of the financial crisis, legacy modernization, and best practices in conducting technology proof of concepts. Future posts will mirror Celent's coverage focus on core systems, IT and business strategies, and any hot topics that emerge.
