Guidewire Software, Inc.

Five hundred and seventy-five people attended from Guidewire’s customer and partner community. Centering on the theme of “ Customer Success”, Connections 2012 provided opportunities for attendees to connect with industry colleagues, exchange experiences, and engage with the Guidewire team.

Connections 2012 was kicked off with Guidewire’s chief executive officer, Marcus Ryu, providing highlights of successful customer implementations, the contributions of Guidewire’s integration partners, and Guidewire’s global expansion over the past year.

Concluding the presentation, Ryu provided an iPad demonstration of Guidewire Live and shared a few future app ideas.
