The Challenge

Encourage entrepreneurs and third party developers to build apps on top of open insurance APIs.


Purpose of a common data standard

This is the first step towards producing a common API spec.

  • Specification for the definition of data properties, structures, relationships, technical names, and data types.
  • A domain model that is technology-agnostic and in comprehensible business terms.
  • Defines requirements and common methodology.
  • A foundation for managing data quality and integrity.
  • A framework for database design
