Duck Creek Technologies is calling for partners and customers to enter the company’s first ecosystem hack-a-thon, aptly named “Duck Creek Hatch-a-thon.” The event will occur during the company’s user conference, scheduled in Orlando, Fla., March 6-8, 2022.

Designed as a 36-hour innovation marathon, Duck Creek is bringing together its developer community to upskill, build amazing solutions and hatch new ideas that will further advance technology for the P/C insurance industry.

Submissions should focus on:

  • Accelerating speed-to-market activities and initiatives for insurance carriers.
  • Maximizing operational efficiency across insurance operations.
  • Optimizing user experience—this includes all individuals across the end-to-end insurance landscape, from carriers and producers to third parties and policyholders.

“For many years, Duck Creek has encouraged our internal development teams to push innovation in technology to new levels,” said Quinn Easterbrook, chief enterprise architect of Duck Creek Technologies. “We are coming off one of our most exciting internal Hatch-a-thons ever, having developed and created capabilities that will serve our customers and products through these great internal ideas. As insurance carriers seek to harness transformative technology to improve efficiency, compliance, distribution management, claims management and so many other aspects of insurance, we are excited to open our Hatch-a-thon concept to existing customers and our partner ecosystem to further shape the benefits and innovation we have developed internally.”

The deadline for entries is Feb. 4, 2022.
