The eiConsole for DTCC Bundle Supports the Quick Implementation of DTCC’s Insurance and Retirement Services
The eiConsole for DTCC Bundle offers additional DTCC-specific productivity-boosting features and capabilities above and beyond the core components of the eiConsole.
DTCC’s Insurance and Retirement Services (I&RS) enables insurance carriers and distributors to exchange information at various points throughout the annuity and life insurance processing cycle. But, before you can realize the benefits of DTCC’s I&RS, you must first connect to it and that can be a big effort. That’s where the eiConsole for DTCC can help. The eiConsole for DTCC quickly connects your systems and applications with DTCC’s I&RS – regardless of your application technology stack, data format, data standard, preferred connectivity protocol or location (on-premises or in the cloud).
With just a few clicks, the DTCC MS-Excel .xls Record Layouts published by DTCC can be imported into the eiConsole where they are transformed into an XML representation. Also imported are the associated metadata, field descriptions and Type Codes. From there, using the graphical Data Mapper in the eiConsole – you can map to or from any other data format or data standard. The eiConsole can also import ACORD schemas, metadata, Type Codes and documentation directly into the eiConsole thus making it a snap to map from one data standard to another. When you have configured the built-in connectors (Listeners and Transports), you are ready to test your transactions from end-to-end right within the eiConsole prior to pushing them to production on the eiPlatform runtime. That’s all there is to it. You are now seamlessly connected to DTCC’s Insurance and Retirement Services and have saved literally thousands of hours of effort.
