Norway's National Insurance Administration (NIA) upgraded the EDI-based communications infrastructure it used to connect to its business partners with a new architecture based on open standards, including the ebXML Messaging OASIS Standard, ISO 15000-2. NIA's ebXML Message service was built using the Xenos terminalONE end-to-end, transaction gateway solution. To date, NIA's system is in production with four applications, and has transported several million ebXML messages corresponding to transactions totaling more than 10 billion Norwegian Kroner (equivalent to 1.2 billion EURO, or 1.5 billion USD).
This case study was authored by Pim van der Eijk on behalf of OASIS with cooperation from the NIA. Funding was provided by Xenos, a Sponsor member of OASIS.
