NexJ honored at first ever insurance industry interoperability testing
SAN DIEGO, May 26, 2011 /CNW/ - NexJ Systems Inc. (TSX: NXJ), a leading provider of enterprise private cloud software,
delivering customer relationship management (CRM) solutions to the
financial services, insurance and healthcare industries, today
announced that NexJ Contact for Insurance has been recognized at ACORD LOMA for its adoption and certification of
an implementation of the ACORD Web Services Profile.
NexJ achieved the recognition at the ACORD LOMA Plug and Play (PnP) Tooling Jamboree, the first open forum and testing center created to prove
interoperability of business transactions and technical compatibility
in the history of the industry.
"To deliver an integrated agent desktop, a solution must seamlessly
access transactional information at source and interoperate," said Paul
DeVriendt, Senior Vice President, Products. "NexJ's model driven
engineering allows organizations to connect multiple disparate systems
and data and deliver a comprehensive customer view to agent
workstations, self-service portals, and mobile devices."
To successfully validate Plug and Play at the ACORD Plug and Play
Tooling Jamboree, NexJ had to prove its SOA messages are compliant with
ACORD Plug and Play standards, which include security, technical and
business messaging requirements; complete two complex Web Services for
customer modifications; connect to a third party Enterprise Service
Bus; gain third party validation of ACORD messages; and enable
interoperation over the Internet between two life insurance carriers,
Mass Mutual and AXA-Equitable and five application vendors: Hyland
Software, Informatica, Oracle, PilotFish Technology and PlanetSoft.
"For the first time in history, multiple carriers and vendors, including
NexJ Systems, were able to connect systems, within hours, using the
ACORD Plug and Play Standards," said Ki Nam Kim, Chair, ACORD Plug and
Play Consortium. "The demonstration and commitments from participating
companies to deliver ACORD-compliant, SOA Services, is a
differentiating capability that would allow insurance carriers to
achieve lower integration costs, faster time-to-value, and truly plug
and play with home grown systems and vendor solutions."
