    ​Hi Team Members,

    Because I'm a insurance company customer, like others we are facing many difficulties to interact, to complain and to get at real time the information needed !

    That's why I would be pleased to know, if there is any existing  Open API useful for Insurance Companies to avoid the paper usage, specially in African companies which need to be transformed digitally ?!

    If not, is there any group members working on this point ?

    Thanks for your kindly feedbacks.

    Regards,
    #DigitalTransformationMaturity

    Hi

    The TM Forum has focused on delivering API's for abstracted digital services and their management.

    However, virtually any service can be modeled and supported with the TM Forum API's as a base.

    However, as insurance is financial industry facing, I suspect many of any fintech partners would expect Open Banking API's to be included as well.

    Good luck

    Indeed, as Hugo mentioned, TM Forum Open APIs can be used as a baseline and adapted to support a variety of digital services. You might also want to have a look at BIAN (Banking Industry Architecture Network), they also offer a wide variety of APIs for the financial sector. Here the link to their API Portal: BIAN Portal
