Insurance Networking News (INN) and Celent will unveil the winners of INN's eight annual technology solution provider ranking this evening in New Orleans. The yearly award event is set to take place at 7pm on October 16, at the Insurance Analytics Symposium in New Orleans.

The Vanguards in Insurance Practices (VIP) ranking is based on a survey of insurance company executives, who are asked to name the technology firms that represent the "best of the best" in terms of the value they deliver. Insurance carriers in the United States and Canada ranked the top insurance technology providers across several categories, including Insurance Core Solutions, Customer Experience Solutions, Decision Support Solutions, Emerging Technologies, Back Office & Support Systems and Strategic Partners.

As part of the program, Insurance Networking News also honors insurance carriers with VIP Best Practices Awards highlighting the year's best technology implementations.

"This is the industry’s way of acknowledging those solution providers that are having the greatest impact on the insurance market,” said John McCormick, Editorial Director of INN. "The winners of the VIP Awards are the vendors insurance executives say they can count on to help them respond to rapidly changing business demands.”

Celent, an independent business research and advisory service with a specialization in insurance technology, facilitated survey development, data collection and analysis, in partnership with INN.

The complete ranking and related analysis will be available in a special report, titled "2014 Vanguards in Insurance Practices," to be posted on the INN news site ( later this month.
