PilotFish Technology Launches PilotFish Interface Exchange (PIE) for Insurance Industry

May 31, 2011

PilotFish Technology has launched the PilotFish Interface Exchange (PIE) for the insurance industry.

PIE, a Web-based application, enables companies in the insurance segment to rapidly share interfaces and interface components that were developed using the PilotFish XCS eiConsole.

The XCS eiConsole is a graphical Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for developing, testing, deploying, managing, and maintaining interfaces.

With the PIE, these companies can achieve integration of all trading partners decades sooner than would otherwise be possible.

The PIE builds on several prior PilotFish products. These include the XCS eiPlatform (the Java runtime), the XCS eiConsole (the graphical IDE), the XCS eiConsole for ACORD, the Validation Server (an automated Validation and Certification component) and the PIE.

PilotFish XCS eiConsole, an integrated development environment (IDE) for the creation, deployment and management of interfaces, is the core of the PIE.

With the PIE, users can now easily share or exchange these configuration files. Users can select the interface they want to share from within the XCS eiConsole IDE. The PIE’s intuitive Wizard opens; users can choose to share the interface with individuals, groups or publically on the Web.

“The combination of the PIE, Plug and Play Message templates, the ACORD Testing and Certification Facility, the XCS eiConsole and the XCS eiPlatform, provide a total solution to achieving the insurance industry’s objective of standards-based integration,” said Neil Schappert, president of PilotFish Technology.

“Every entity within the insurance value chain can achieve seamless integration now regardless of whether they are communicating with legacy systems, dealing with extensions, different ACORD versions, operating systems or communication protocols,” Schappert added.

According to a recent TMCnet report, PilotFish Technology announced it entered into an agreement with ACORD whereby ACORD will offer and distribute PilotFish Technology's XCS eiConsole for ACORD to its members.
