Wrapping Up a CITS eApp Notification Feed

I'm in the late stages of wrapping up a project to add a CITS eApp Notification feed as a integration between an insurance client of mine and a vendor's system (bluesun's WealthServ), and I thought it might be helpful to look back over the effort and share things that I learned anew or, at least, things I received fresh reminders of along the way.

If you haven't encountered some of these terms elsewhere, let me explain:

  • CITS is the Canadian Insurance Transaction Standardization effort by CLIEDIS.
  • CLIEDIS is the Canadian Life Insurance EDI Standards organization.
  • eApp Notification feed is a feed to inform vendors of an eApplication submission. Basically, it carries core information about a new application from one organization to another.

For instance, an insurance company might want to send information about new policies in the application process to, say, WealthServ or VirtGate so that brokers could login and see their policy, and get updates and commission information.

I've been taking notes in an outline to write up, and the outline is now big enough that I'm sure I'm going to need more than one post. So I'm starting here with a brief description of the project and some of the terms, and then I'll follow that with a series of posts covering many of these topics:

  • Integration Projects and Models
  • Generic Data Models
  • Monitoring and Logging
  • Security

That's not an exhaustive list, but it's a start. More to come.
