Core Systems Purchasing Reaches the Tipping Point: What’s Hot – And What’s Not analyzes P&C insurers’ core systems buying decisions in 2016, their significance, and bigger changes still to come. Key areas of focus include the suite vs. component viewpoint, cloud vs. on-premise deployment, and new extended capabilities like portals and advanced data and analytics that are becoming increasingly critical to deriving the value from these strategic investments. The report also explores the impact of solution provider acquisitions in the past twelve months and how they have created a disrupted ecosystem that will continue into the future.

Figure 1 is an example diagram from the report, showing the extension of core functionality to support insurers’ strategic initiatives in enterprise-wide data and analytics and the digital customer experience.
