IVC Software Factory for ACORD Standards
The IVC Software Factory for ACORD Standards is a set of development tools and assets that utilize the Microsoft .NET Framework to aid insurance firms and software vendors in the integration of existing applications and business logic with ACORD web services.
Targeting the property and casualty and life and annuity businesses, the IVC Software Factory is an extension of Microsoft’s broader IVC Architecture Framework, released in 2006. Hosted on Microsoft’s open-source development portal CodePlex (www.codeplex.com)
and available free to the insurance community, the IVC Software Factory includes ready-to-run Microsoft Visual Studio development projects, samples, whitepapers and a next-generation Microsoft Silverlight 2.0 reference user interface – all of which can be
consumed and implemented within insurance environments today.
