We have a client that has the typical online quote generator but is looking to revamp that process and tie it in with other services he can sell to other insurance clients. The application is still in its infancy but could have the potential of blowing up in our face if we don't plan accordingly.

The old website used a fairly simple RDB with a lot of array manipulation done by the developers, but we'd like to make it a little more object-oriented, maybe even consider an EAV modeling approach to allow for the growth.

Are there any insurance data models out there to start from or is anybody willing to share their experience on similar projects?

Any thoughts or direction would be greatly appreciated.
