Co-brandedthe “XCS eiConsole for ACORD”, it will offer ACORD members specific capabilitiesthat enable the fastest, highest quality, and most cost effective means ofimplementing the ACORD XML Standard within their respective organizations. “We are very excited that PilotFish will provide the XCS eiConsole to ourmembers to facilitate the implementation of the ACORD Standard,” commented LloydChumbley, Vice President Standards, at ACORD. “We have many years of experienceworking with PilotFish for our own validation, testing and certification andwe’re glad that our members will be able to benefit from these technologies aswell.” The XCS eiConsole provides enormous value to anyone that has implemented or isimplementing the ACORD Standard. XCS eiConsole components include: * The Validation Processor * The File Specification Editor * The Data Mapper * The Schema Manager * Integration Testing The output of each of these components is W3C-compliant which means it can be”plugged in” to any W3C-Compliant SOA/ESB infrastructure. The XCS eiConsole was originally designed to support insurance and specifically,ACORD requirements. It supports unique features and functions for insurance notavailable in any other integration tools. These features vastly increase theinsurance professional`s productivity and include: * An on-line tutorial in both video and text format that provides step-by-stepinstructions for building and testing an ACORD message. * Pre-built templates for ACORD LAH, and PCS transactions – saving thousands ofhours that would be spent reviewing implementation guides and custom definingtransactions. * The ability to submit transactions directly to ACORD`s Testing andCertification Facility (TCF). * A built-in Validation Processor that supports schema validation, Schematron/XSLT validation, and “Validators” that can check metadata and referenceinformation, perform database lookups and support regular expressions andpatterns. * A File Specification Editor that enables the transformation of Excelspreadsheets (such as DTCC) and flat file definitions (such as AL3) to an XMLrepresentation including their associated documentation. No time consuming andtedious custom programming is required. * An intuitive graphical Data Mapper that provides a “point, click, drag, anddrop” method of building complex XSLT transformations. ACORD-specific featuresof the Data Mapper include: * Ability to import both the ACORD XSD and ACORD Metadata – eliminating the needto search external sources for documentation necessary for the data mappingprocess. * Searchable ACORD Metadata documentation. * “Drag and drop” mapping of typecodes (Life & Annuity), and Codelists (P&C).Tabular values are automatically imported from the ACORD metadata documentation.* Point-and-click support for role-based relations. * Easy upgrade from one release of the ACORD Standard to another with just a fewmouse-clicks. * Ability to export W3C-compliant XSLT transformations. * A Schema Manager that enables ACORD-compliant model extensions including theability to add elements, attributes, fields, new types, and ACORD type codes andcode lists. It also supports simple point-and-click schema “slicing”. * An Integration Testing and Emulation capability that lets users buildprototype interfaces and test them end-to-end including connectivity to theSource and Target systems. The XCS eiPlatform Emulator built into the XCSeiConsole lets the user simulate running multiple interfaces with complexworkflows in production. This is ideal for supporting an Agile/iterativedevelopment methodology. ”As ACORD members use the individual components of the XCS eiConsole for ACORDto build, test, and validate interfaces and to manage the ACORD schema, we areconfident they will come to appreciate its ease of use and resultantproductivity gains,” commented Neil Schappert, president, PilotFish Technology.”When they realize that with just the click of a mouse they can also deploy thedeveloped interfaces to the XCS eiPlatform and run them in production, they willunderstand the value of having both the XCS eiConsole and the XCS eiPlatform. Itwill be a win for ACORD, ACORD members, and PilotFish.” The XCS eiConsole for ACORD, is available on the ACORD website at:http://bit.ly/1VJs3PA free XCS eiConsole for ACORD concurrent use license, is available per membercompany (subject to the approval of both PilotFish and ACORD).
