Siebel Financial Services Connector for ACORD P&C and Surety Guide > Overview > Using the Siebel Connector for ACORD XML >
The Siebel Connector for ACORD XML requires the following components in order to implement message exchanges between Siebel eBusiness Applications and ACORD-compliant applications:
- Siebel Financial Services
- A license to use the Siebel Connector for ACORD XML
The Siebel Connector for ACORD XML license key can be obtained from Siebel Manufacturing Operations. Please ask your technical account manger to obtain your license key, or log a service request on Siebel SupportWeb.
NOTE: Siebel Connector for ACORD XML is not automatically available as part of Siebel Financial Services, but must be purchased separately.
- Siebel Event Manager to initiate a workflow process through a Siebel workflow manager (optional). In the absence of the event manager, an eScript can initiate a workflow process. Siebel Workflow is delivered as a part of Siebel Financial Services.
NOTE: You should also be familiar with ACORD XML models. Additional information about these models can be obtained by visiting www.acord.org.
For the purposes of this document, we assume that all these products have been successfully installed and tested for completeness by trained personnel before starting to use the Siebel Connector for ACORD XML for integration. Please refer to Configuration Roadmap for implementing integration.
