The platform was developed as learning tool to test out conceptual ideas of modularity and compatibility of insurance products, services and data.

It had to be of a basic digital structure with basic functionality, a prototype and a sandbox to learn and generate new ideas. A test bed and a demonstration tool wrapped in one.

"A testbed is a platform for conducting rigorous, transparent, and replicable testing of scientific theories, computational tools, and new technologies. The term is used across many disciplines to describe experimental research and new product development platforms and environments"[1].

In the spirit of Open Insurance, we would like to build a community around the idea.
