Description

Top rule

To help financial services organizations achieve faster results, IBM has packaged the knowledge gained from years of experience with information projects in the insurance sector into the IBM Insurance Information Warehouse model. This model is designed to deliver industry expertise and support regulatory best practice in a form usable by both business and IT to implement projects more quickly. The result can be faster time to value, fulfilled expectations, and reduced project risk.

Key components of the IBM Insurance Information Warehouse model:

  • Business terms are an enterprise-wide vocabulary (or catalog) of business concepts.
  • Analytical requirements are a set of industry-relevant analytical reporting requirements organized around business focus areas.
  • Supportive content is a set of business terms that provides a method of mapping both external and internal terms from business standards and other requirements.
  • Atomic warehouse model is a design-level data model that represents an enterprise-wide repository of atomic data that is used for informational processing.
  • Dimensional warehouse model is an enterprise-wide repository for analytical data. It contains star schema dimensional data structures that are organized around fact entities that support analytical requirements.
  • Business data model is a logical entity-relationship model that represents the essential entities and relationships of the insurance industry.

Limited warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
