PFI comes with the IAA data model Out of the box. Pega foundation for Insurance has mimicked the data model provided by IAA. So that customers can utilize the industry standard data model for their implementations.


Pega Foundation for Insurance has extended the some of the classes from IAA data model. For example, Insured Vehicle class in the foundation data model directly extends from IAA data model "CarModel."

FYR, Please find the inheritance path for the "Insured Vehicle" in the picture. Here in the image,

all the IAA standard data model classes built under "Piif- ".


please refer the picture depicting the design pattern followed in PFI.

Many Insurance specific objects defined in the Pega Foundation for Insurance (PegaIns-Data-*) such as vehicle, are built by extending the IAA data model.

Implementations on top of PFI can extend and utilize IAA data model classes if the class is not already being extended in PFI data classes.

Implementations can utilize the IAA data model directly from the PIIF classes and build the solutions.
