FOSTER CITY, Calif. -- October 2, 2013

Guidewire Software, Inc. (NYSE: GWRE) a provider of software products to
Property/Casualty (P/C) insurers, today announced that it will add support for
IBM® DB2® Linux, UNIX and Windows database software for Guidewire ClaimCenter®
8. The addition expands the database system options available to Guidewire
ClaimCenter customers.

“We are pleased to expand our database support options for customers as they
embark on their claims transformation journeys,” said Ben Brantley, chief
technology officer, Guidewire Software. “In addition to offering customers the
option of running on DB2, those insurers already running DB2 will now have the
ability to implement ClaimCenter without needing to change their relational
database management system. We are pleased to work with IBM to support our
mutual customers in this way.”

“Insurers are among the most demanding organizations when it comes to fast,
reliable, and secure data management, and use of analytics to optimize
business results,” said Sean Poulley, vice president, databases and
warehousing, IBM Software Group. “Guidewire solutions already run on a wide
range of IBM hardware and software platforms including Power Systems and the
AIX operating system, System x, and WebSphere Application Server. We are
excited that insurers running their business with ClaimCenter are now able to
leverage the unique power of DB2 for reliable transaction speed.”
