SILVER SPRING, Md., July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- DataSource, Inc., a $18 million company that provides custom software development, systems integration, business process re-engineering, and network services to the commercial and government marketplace announces that it is developing an enterprise-wide system for the Maryland Insurance Administration. The system will handle the receipt and approval of applications to sell insurance; the examination of insurance companies for compliance with Maryland law; the investigation of insurance agent licensing issues; and the investigation of acts of insurance fraud in the state. The system will improve and enhance the internal processes of MIA by eliminating such repetitive tasks as the multiple entry of data by separate units within the administration. The system will allow MIA to move into the next millennium as a self-funded organization. The system is being developed using an object-oriented approach to analysis, design, and programming. It is an N-Tier, thin client system utilizing a database layer, transaction server, and a servlet engine. The thin client is composed of a series of JAVA applets displayed through a Netscape web browser. Hardware and software used include Windows NT 4.0, Dell Poweredge 45300 servers, JDK 1.1, Netscape 54.51, JRUN Pro, Jaguar CTS 3.0, and Sybase Adaptive Server 11.9.
