How Modern Insurance Policy Administration Systems are Transforming the Insurance Industry

Insurance CIO Outlook | Thursday, December 16, 2021

Microservices architecture is a development strategy that employs a collection of independently deployable, modular applications to form a full-scale enterprise application. Insurance policy administration systems benefit from microservices' agility, scalability, and dependability.

Fremont, CA: In recent years, insurance policy administration systems have evolved significantly to incorporate more dynamic and flexible solutions. Modern technologies have transformed the user experience while also reducing the effort required to onboard and maintain new and innovative insurance product offerings in carrier platforms. These advancements have altered the way insurance is purchased and sold.

Insurance Microservices

The shift to microservices is becoming more pronounced as cloud computing expands. What role do insurance microservices play in a modern policy administration system?

The use of microservices will provide several advantages to insurers. Saving money and time is essential for efficiency, and microservices will allow insurers to adapt, update, as well as focus on individual components and capabilities rather than having to update their entire system.

Microservices architecture is a development strategy that employs a collection of independently deployable, modular applications to form a full-scale enterprise application. Insurance policy administration systems benefit from microservices' agility, scalability, and dependability.

Microservices components can be used to implement various APIs that typically have one or a small set of jobs that serve as individual building blocks. Furthermore, because microservices focus on individual components rather than the all-encompassing approach of monolithic applications, they require less maintenance. Instead of working within an outdated architecture, developers will be able to focus their efforts on delivering targeted applications that solve business problems.

Microservices provide a variety of policy administration functionality, including:

• Submission and Quote Life Cycle APIs
• Document Generation APIs
• Billing Life Cycle APIs
• Discrete Services APIs
• Policy Life Cycle APIs

Another area of inefficiency in insurance policy administration is the updating and analysis of ISO circulars. Carriers have solved this problem by utilizing microservices architecture and innovative vendors. Carriers can immediately implement new changes by using ISO updates, which are available within 24 hours of the release of the most recent ISO ERC version.
