Announcing the ACORD Reference Architecture Data Model Version 2.7.2 Release

ACORD has released an update to the Reference Architecture. Data Model version 2.7.2 enables members to more easily perform a physical implementation of the ACORD Data Model using a case study.

In this release:

  • We recognized a very common use case of the ACORD Data Model, where it serves as a foundation for a member to create a data warehouse data model. 
  • We created a fictional P&C carrier, and described some of their systems, challenges, and goals. We then walked through the process of how to use the ACORD Data Model to develop the fictional carrier’s data design.
  • We developed a guidebook for how carrier-specific circumstances would influence physical design decisions.
