Modern Regulatory Reporting

Kira

To solve the “data problem” in regulatory reporting, AAIS has developed an innovative approach for clause filing reviews that utilizes patented machine-learning software, developed by Kira, which takes a lengthy, manual process and expedites it. AAIS leverages this emerging technology to identify and extract clause-level data from our library of advisory property and casualty forms. In turn, automated side-by-side comparisons of forms create efficiencies in product development, coverage analyses, and forms filings. 

  • AAIS uses Kira to compare common insurance agreements and make recommendations to Members carriers on how those forms compare to industry standards.
  • Alongside Kira, AAIS uses Alfresco, a content management platform that was configured by TSG's Open Content Management Suite.
  • AAIS has “trained” Kira on 713 custom provisions for the P&C insurance industry using Quick Study.
  • AAIS imports forms on a weekly basis, maintaining a library of previously approved language.
  • As new legislation is passed, AAIS leverages the clause library to identify impacted forms and initiate change management.
  • AAIS can upload insurance carrier coverage forms and compare it to corresponding AAIS and industry offerings.

openIDL

Regulatory demands for data are growing, while the volume of data insurers must sort through to comply is expanding exponentially. As a result, the essential insurer-regulator transaction continues to become more time-consuming, expensive, and less effective. But it doesn’t need to be. openIDL is here.

openIDL, an open source, distributed ledger platform, infuses efficiency, transparency, and security into regulatory reporting: With openIDL, insurers fulfill requirements while retaining the privacy of their data. Regulators have the transparency and insights they need when they need them.

Initially developed by AAIS, expressly for our Members, openIDL is now being further advanced by the Linux Foundation as an open-source ecosystem for the entire insurance industry.
