? ACORD 2010

? ACORD 2010

History

? ? ? ?

5/2009 - Proposed idea at a LOMA meeting 7/2009 – Formed the PnP Consortium 1/2010 – Became an official working group of ACORD 5/2010 - Completed a proof of concept using ?Add Beneficiary? service
? Many issues surfaced with regards to defining a standardized Plug and Play-able Service with our current standards and environment

? 7/2010 until now - Focused on resolving issues uncovered and defining an additional service
? ACORD 2010

Lessons Learned

? Defining 1 way to present a business concept not easy
? Standard supports multiple ways ? Where to draw line challenging

? Defining single set of data parameters that meets all needs not easy
? Different requirements ? Required versus optional dilemma
? ACORD 2010

Lessons Learned
? Companies in very different places regarding use of WS-* standards and readiness for AWSP (ACORD Web Service Profile) ? Definition of plug and play needed to be refined

? ACORD 2010

WS-*: Web Services Standards

Decisions

Definition of Plug and Play ? Plug and Play {for us} = Semantic Interoperability ? Efforts must be defined in such a way that the interfaces can be used interchangeably
? Technically consistent ? Without dictating pre-set rules and business behaviors

? Produces ?useful results? that can be understood by the end users of both systems
? Not ?standardized results? that cannot vary between implementations.
? ACORD 2010

Decisions

Approach ? There will be exactly one format and structure supported
? Based on the ACORD LAH messaging model

? Like information will be defined one way
? Define business entities at low enough level that duplicate ways of representing concept are removed ? Even at low level, PnPC will need to make hard choices in order to pick a single way

? A list of minimum requirements that developers can expect ? A list of optional parameters that are known variances will be defined
? ACORD 2010

Decisions

Approach ? Technical / framework requirements needed to be supported by a PnP service based on their environment
? Requirements must ensure that PnP is not presupposing a specific infrastructure

? Standard expectations of service level/technical behaviors
? Service level error and informational reporting

? Standard set of possible business behaviors/decisions
? This translates into message level error and informational reporting
? ACORD 2010

Deliverables
From Scope and Deliverables Document ? For each service
? ? ? ? Service Identifier and Description ACORD TXLife Transaction usage Request/Response Processing Support, error handling Business Entity Decision Tree
