Celent conducts timely and independent research concentrating on information technology and strategy and their relevance to the global financial services industry with a specific focus on Banking, Securities & Investments, and Insurance.

Our research falls under three overarching themes:


The move from the physical to the virtual world, from person-to-person interaction toward person-to-machine or machine-to-machine. Integrating and coordinating among disparate and siloed delivery channels will be critical to satisfying ever-increasing customer expectations. 

Innovation & Emerging Technologies

Celent defines innovation as fundamental changes to products, services, or business models that break existing tradeoffs and provide value to the customer. New hardware, software and network technologies feed insurance innovation.


Insurance Innovation Reporter (IIR) is a business-to-business media brand focused on the insurance industry’s use of information technology in support of business goals. It offers resources for insurance IT strategists — including news, thought leadership, white papers, etc. at IIReporter.com and through its weekly digital newsletter.

Its primary focus is on insurers, the manufacturing side of the insurance industry, including the property/casualty, life and annuities, health, and reinsurance sectors.  The target reader is the insurance executive charged with either making decisions about technology investment or implementing those decisions. These readers include CIOs and other C-level executives, along with senior technology executives responsible for various aspects of technology evaluation and execution.

IIR additionally provides commentary by a variety of expert sources — including analysts, consultants, vendors and insurance executives. It also hosts live webcasts and in-person executive symposiums for more in-depth exploration of important topics.


Legacy & Ecosystem Transformation

Legacy technology can hinder innovation, since insurers must typically offer backward compatibility. Insurers must not only modernize, but transform, their internal systems and the ways in which they interact with a vast web of customers, counterparties and regulators.


Celent research reports generally fall into one of four categories:

•Trends Analysis—high-level views of trends in segments of the global financial services industry.
•Vendor Comparisons—a detailed look at various technology vendors’ offerings with recommendations for financial institutions engaged in system selections.
•Case Studies—close-up reports focusing on a single firm’s experience launching a specific technology initiative.

Our internationally based, multilingual analysts provide our clients with a global perspective and an unparalleled understanding of market structure, market trends, the latest technological innovations, and their impact on the global financial services industry. As markets become more fragmented, regulations more complex, and technology more evolved, it can be difficult to stay on top of everything.
