Celent Names PilotFish Technology to Traction Index in its Most Recent Insurance Software Deal Trends Report
Ranking Confirms PilotFish Technology is a Leading Systems Integrator for the Insurance Industry
(Eworldwire) July 9, 2007 – In the latest edition of its Insurance Software Deal Trends report, research and advisory firm Celent, LLC, has named PilotFish Technology to its “Traction Index,” reflecting PilotFish’s recent deals in insurance.
The Traction Index is a weighted score that measures the volume and type of deals that software companies made during 2005 and 2006. “Leaders in the Traction Index are demonstrating strong market momentum among insurers, which gives them the kind of experience that many carriers are looking for,” says Craig Weber, Celent senior analyst and author of the report.
“PilotFish Technology’s products — the PilotFish XCS eiPlatform and XCS eiConsole, have gained market leadership by meeting insurance industry-specific integration requirements,” says Neil Schappert, president and CEO of PilotFish Technology. “These industry-specific features and capabilities are unmatched in the industry and can dramatically reduce the time and cost to address insurance industry integration requirements”.
The company’s XCS eiPlatform is a complete Java framework that can leverage web services and industry XML standards to support the run-time integration of disparate systems regardless of their platform, operating system, database, data format or communication protocol.
The XCS eiConsole is a graphical Integrated Development Environment that utilizes a point, click, drag, and drop visual interface to enable the creation, deployment, management, and maintenance of interfaces for operation on the XCS eiPlatform framework. The XCS eiConsole offers a better, faster, less expensive, and more intuitive approach that makes managing dozens or even hundreds of interfaces an order of magnitude easier.
“As indicated by its most recent ranking, companies have chosen PilotFish products to complement their horizontal integration tools. Our insurance-specific solutions allow them to achieve faster implementations of the ACORD standard, eliminate project risk, and reach their objectives sooner”, says Neil Schappert. “These are some of the reasons why in the last twelve months more than 25 Life & Annuity and P&C companies have selected PilotFish Technology to address their systems integration requirements and why we are ranked the highest among systems integrators focused on the insurance industry.”
