IBM Gives Free Resources To Manage ACORD XML Standards

NU Online News Service, May 21, 2:41 p.m. EDT

Armonk, N.Y.-based IBM said today it will offer free technical resources to help insurers better access, integrate and manage ACORD standards-based XML data across the enterprise.

Database administrators and software developers running IBM DB2 9 data server software can now view an interactive demo and download a new DB2 pureXML industry bundle that includes scripts and examples at no charge, IBM explained.

The company said this will help insurers to begin seamlessly managing both conventional relational data and ACORD XML messages without having to reformat the XML data for consumption outside of the database.
