5925A- Using ODM's Decision Validation Services (DVS) at AXA Equitable Life Insurance
Mike Ryan, Prolifics & Brad Hoffman (AXA)
Tuesday, 11:30 AM - 12:15 PM | Mandalay Bay Ballroom K
AXA needed to quickly make several complex actuarial models available to their brokers through a new UI. The UI was only partially complete, so rather than risk embedding these pricing models directly into the UI, AXA came to Prolifics to quickly convert their rating models, developed by in-house actuaries as Excel models, into complex ODM pricing applications. Join Prolifics & AXA to learn about the key to this development success - extensive use of ODM Decision Validation Services. All ratings issues are now resolved independently of other architectural issues. Since going live, virtually all reported defects are external to the ODM rating applications, helping AXA to be confident in the robustness & correctness of their ODM-based rating engine.
