The Holdings business feature in Open Cloud MDM is a pivotal tool for institutions, offering a comprehensive, enterprise-wide perspective on all holdings associated with a party and the relevant policies or contracts. This feature is particularly effective in managing and tracking assets and liabilities, as well as in identifying potential issues like fraudulent claims.

Key Functionalities

  1. Consolidated View of Holdings: The Holdings feature provides a unified view of all the holdings for a particular party, along with the associated policy or contract. This comprehensive perspective is crucial for effective asset management and fraud detection.
  2. Tracking of Claims Against Holdings: This feature is essential in tracking claims made against specific holdings or personal belongings, facilitating the management of financial transactions and disbursements related to these items.
  3. Integration with Claims Feature: Holdings or items, categorized as assets and liabilities, are maintained and linked to claims through the Agreement (Contract) component, highlighting the interconnectedness with the Claims business feature.

Key Terms

  1. Data Transfer Objects (DTO): DTOs are objects that carry data between processes in order to reduce the number of method calls. In the context of holdings, they are used to efficiently transfer data related to holdings.
