The study also looked at the business processes supported by these deals, as well as some of the broad trends in terms of deal activity.

Celent's report, released in April, reflects data collected from 974 insurance software deals that occurred in 2003 and 2004. Of these deals, 475 involved life/health insurers (16% health and 33% life/annuity carriers), while 499 (52%) involved property/casualty insurers.
