This week I’m excited to share the news that Accenture will form a joint venture with Apax Partners, a top 10 global private equity firm. The joint venture is intended to further accelerate development of Duck Creek products and technologies, leveraging advanced digital and cloud technology, and to extend the reach of Duck Creek in key markets.
As part of the venture, Accenture will collaborate with Duck Creek to help insurers take advantage of the Internet of Things, Big Data analytics and other emerging technologies. Accenture will also be designated as a Duck Creek Technologies premier systems integrator and consulting partner pursuant to a strategic alliance arrangement.
Comprised of billing, claims, policy and rating software, the Duck Creek Suite delivers configurable, best of breed technology designed to work independently or as a combined approach. Duck Creek On-demand delivers the same suite solution through Software as a Service, a powerful choice that enables insurers to benefit from a proven cloud solution to achieve a competitive advantage.
This joint venture will open the door to a brave new stage of development, enabling us to help shape leading-edge digital technologies.
