Microsoft Releases Insurance Value Chain Architecture Framework v1.0

| by Stefan Tilkov Follow 5 Followers on Jun 09, 2006. Estimated reading time: less than one minute |
Microsoft has announced a new architecture framework to assist insurance companies in developing SOAs and deploying pre-integrated software applications around core insurance business processes. The framework is called Insurance Value Chain Architecture Framework (IVCAF).

According to Microsoft, IVCAF is a library of production-quality integrations and composite applications, business narratives, Visio process models, XML and Web services messaging recommendations, and platform-specific implementation guidance. Domains covered by the framework include new business homeowner's policy processing, new business commercial auto policy processing, personal auto collision repair and bodily injury claims, and wealth management and life and annuities enrollment.

Based on the information currently available, it's unclear how Microsoft's claim of the framework's service-oriented architecture is reflected in the actual implementation.
