Embarcadero Webinar: Maximize the Benefits of ACORD XML Standards


SAN FRANCISCO – Dec. 2, 2010 — Join Embarcadero Technologies on Wednesday, December 8 for a one-hour webinar and learn how to maximize the benefits of ACORD’s XML insurance industry standards.

- Technical aspects of finding the data model within the ACORD standards

- How to streamline implementations to maximize the benefits of these industry assets
