Software AG, Inc. announced the general availability of XML Mediator, a tool for building XML information exchange hubs. XML Mediator manages XML interactions that discover relevant information and uses that information to trigger behavior, such as routing documents or messages to an appropriate destination or transforming the content to other XML formats or presentation styles such as HTML, PDF or WML. XML Mediator provides a framework for addressing the problem of diverse XML vocabularies in much the same way as humans have addressed it for centuries: discover patterns in the information, translate it to a more familiar terminology, and transcribe it into some standardized form. Industries such as healthcare, insurance, energy, chemical and petroleum are defining XML-based standards that simplify information exchange. XML Mediator has the ability to support data exchange standards such as ACORD, IFX, FIXML, PIDX and CIDX.
