Insurance Industry Data Model
Unify and organize your data across the enterprise.
CSC’s Insurance Industry Data Model (IIDM) helps organizations quickly create a framework that unifies multiple sources of company and third-party data to create a complete and accurate representation of that data.
The IIDM was conceived through CSC’s more than 30 years of experience in global life insurance, annuities, and property and casualty/general insurance. It has also been refined and validated by our network of insurance clients and partners, allowing us to design, build and structure an industry data model with unparalleled technical considerations:
- Our view of the data structure for an insurance company is in insurance terms that are recognizable throughout the global industry.
- We have resolved the relationships between all of the data elements, saving modelers and designers thousands of hours and accelerating enterprise data projects as well as focused domain projects.
- The IIDM accommodates data sourced from multiple systems that use different codes and dictionaries for similar functions.
- Regardless of sourcing tools used for the vast variety of data, the IIDM retains the metadata information including original source system keys for complete traceability and transparency.
This unique abstraction of an insurer’s enterprise data organizes, categorizes, defines and articulates the relationship of the data across all lines of business and functions regardless of currency, language or geography. The data can be bundled by subject matter without the need to implement the entire model, providing insurers with unprecedented content flexibility and agile deployment.
