IBM announced free technical resources to help insurance companies 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 to begin managing both conventional relational data and ACORD XML messages without having to reformat the XML data for consumption outside of the database.

The DB2 pureXML industry bundle simplifies data integration by enabling database administrators to load XML messages and schemas directly from ACORD and to define XML queries and indexes for business applications. As a result, insurance companies using DB2 9 data server software can increase the availability, speed and versatility of their business information while reducing administrative costs associated with existing XML data management techniques.
