Insurance Application Architecture (IAA)
IBM has been developing the IAA and Direct Insurance Process Models since
1991 in co-operation with major insurance clients including Lincoln
IAA uses IBM's Enterprise Object Technology Strategy for implementation.
This supports distributed objects, portability and interoperability via the
CORBA and other standards. It includes application development and management
tools, an object repository, and an object database with persistency capability.
IBM provides common class libraries (components) for the insurance industry,
along with consultancy, training & education, and expert support services.
CORBA-Insurance is a sub-group within the CORBA financial group which is
part of the OMG (Object Management Group) (CORBA = Common Object Request
Broker). The OMG is a consortium of vendors and users who aim to develop
architectures and standards to support object inter-operability.
CORBA's insurance architecture facilitates linkages across the insurance
Value Chain by means of defining Common Business Objects (CBOs) and how they
inter-relate. CBOs are business functions that are common across a vertical
market (e.g. motor quotations) or industry as a whole (e.g. purchasing).
Businesses within the chain then build their systems by purchasing objects
from different vendors and by developing their own objects. CORBA compliant
software allows business suppliers and distributors to link their computer
systems across a network, including the Internet.
IBM, Andersen Consulting, Continuum and Aetna are key members.
