DBE Enquiry


Mar Rainsby

Question

Hello

 

I was hoping you might be able to help. I need to run a dbe query to get all data since 01-06-2016 for a migration. That's all I have been provided with. 

I know DBE is a bit limited - does anyone know what parameters I could use that will give me everything including clients, policies and claims. 

 

Thanks

Ouch - so Open GI want it in DBE but wont tell you how to get it!?  I presume you are paying them for the Transfer service 😮 

 

Not sure I can help easily - it depends on lots of things - why you are doing this, what are you trying to achieve, what happens to the data you can't / don't bring across, what about accounts, risk, diary, operator trails, prospects, histories etc etc etc etc. Is it policies live after 2016 but taken out in 2015 - or just NB from 2016 etc?. Sooooooo many unknowns to give you a proper answer.

 

You really need to be guided by the business need and their scope / requirements and, then ask OGI to deliver the service / solution to you.

 

Looking back - the DBE "how to" is probably the easiest part in this. The "why" and the "what" are the more difficult questions to be addressed imho - but maybe that's just me being me 

 

I / we here can help with the DBE parameters as and when / if needed (if OGI can't / won't) :ph34r:

Exactly. Been a long while since I participated in an OGI data migration utilising DBE to supply the source data but the key question is the criteria (as Mark said) - live only or include terminated, client & policy detail only or also claims/diary/ledger etc.?  If you need more than just base policy info using  DBE you are talking multiple enquiries….

    • So #BIBA for Real is back! Anyone else going?    Handy Tip - "Speak to more people you don't know, than those you do know"   You can thank me later - with flowers 🌻 💖
    • "Warning re Sanctions Checks on #OpenGI"   This post is now available in the Public area of the Forum for review and comment 
    • Great to meet back up with the Open GI User Group Committee after soooooo many sessions on remote links   Breaking bread face to face is much more pleasant than a cup-of-soup in between video chats    Exciting times ahead for members and lot's of new stuff coming from Open GI
    • So - what is the point of this ..   Don't tell me even if you say "Yes" - it's actually being ignored?   Why would anyone restrict Sanctions Checks to specific Client / types - let alone specific Capture Page Layouts - SURELY a Yes/No per Client / Contact - and the existing global parameters - covers all the bases. Oh and where in the manual did it not explain this?   Either way - the Yes/No below is at best misleading for operators and at worst - a breach for the business!! Who's picking up that cost ...  
    • So, we find ourselves in modern day unprecedented time.  Governments around the world are applying strict sanctions against Russian companies and individuals and it's being made very clear that action will be taken if those sactions are ignored.   For most of us, this will not be an issue but what if you do have a sanctioned individual or company?  Are you checking?  Are you relying on Open GI Sanctions checking?   First of all, have you got Broker and Prospect Amendment completed under sanctions checking to review Commercial Risks?  Using the Level 1 Contacts on a Commercial master frame will also Sanction check whoever or whatever you put in for review.     However, what about your personal lines clients?  The client level is checked sure, but what about the contacts you've added??  Well, if you're not aware, be aware.  They don't get checked.  So, if you've corrected added a contact for a joint policyholder on a Home policy for example, just hope you've either got them insured in their own right somewhere or that they are not called Abramovich!     The point of Sanctions checking is that you have a record of the checks, in the event of something being highlighted.  Open GI have gone to the trouble of making this work for the Commercial risks but not Personal Lines.   However, your User Group Committee have raised this issue and will continue to apply pressure until something is done.
