MISMO and Financial XML Standards Implementation Tools
Leverage Application Server Technology and Enable Seamless Communication with a Proven Integration Solution that Supports the Unique Requirements of MISMO, DTCC and Other Financial XML Standards
MISMO, DTCC and other XML standards promise to facilitate faster data transactions, which, in turn, lead to greater revenue and sales. Many companies have recognized the enormous benefits of using XML standards, but due to the complexities involved, far fewer have actually implemented them. To really leverage XML standards-based communication, there needs to be a bridge between old legacy systems and new technologies based on XML. PilotFish tools bridge this gap with an integrated solution that allows any system(s) or services to be integrated with any other system(s) or services regardless of platform, operating system, database, or communication protocol, and whether or not you or your trading partners are using MISMO or any other XML standard.
With PilotFish tools you can greatly reduce project cycles and deliver higher quality interfaces. Our integrated solution provides you with everything you need to define, build, test, deploy, manage, monitor and maintain sophisticated interfaces built around the MISMO, DTCC or other financial XML standards. PilotFish offers a proven solution that increases productivity 10 to 100x and offers a tremendous ROI (Return on Investment). PilotFish Technology’s integrated solution includes our two core products. The first, the eiConsole, has been additionally engineered to support the unique semantic requirements of MISMO and DTCC XML standards and we offer bundles for each of these standards. The second, the eiPlatform, is the Java framework for running the interfaces developed with the eiConsole.
The eiConsole Core Product is a graphical IDE (Integrated Development Environment) created for the express purpose of developing, testing, deploying, managing and maintaining interfaces. An integrated suite of components supports every aspect of interface development including a unique datamapper, graphical file-to-XML editing, validation and hundreds of time saving features including drop-down menus, installed listeners, processors, format readers, configuration screens, transaction monitors, support for all popular types of transports, direct metadata import, one click schema updates and more.
The eiConsole for DTCC Bundle
The DTCC bundle has support for the unique semantics of the DTCC standard. In addition to the core product features of the eiConsole the DTCC bundle provides substantial enhancements to enable unparalleled support for DTCC-specific capabilities, including support for both IPS flat file layouts and the ACORD Standard DTCC TXLife Transactions.
The following NSCC file layouts are supported by the eiConsole for DTCC:
- Positions and Values (POV, PVF, PNF, PFF)
- Financial Activity Reporting (FAR)
- Commissions (COM)
- Application and Subsequent Premium (APP/SUB)
- Asset Pricing (AAPW)
- Licensing and Appointment (LNA)
- In-force Transactions (IFT)
The eiConsole for DTCC also includes interface templates for each ACORD TXLife transaction currently supported by or in development at DTCC. The growing library of supported transactions currently includes:
- Financial Activity
Additions to the core product features of the eiConsole for DTCC bundle:
- Imports any XSD or EDI format definition including:
- Includes pre-built transaction templates
- Provides searchable Metadata documentation
- Supports “drag & drop” tabular mapping
- Supports Role-based relations
- Enables standards-compliant Model extensions and xml schema management
- Supports multiple standard model releases, model upgrades and different model interpretations

The eiConsole for MISMO
MISMO XML standards provide a set of common messaging constructs to support core data exchange processes in the Mortgage and Lending space. MISMO has provided a comprehensive Logical Data Dictionary of over 3,000 data fields with definitions relating the source and use of each, as well as transaction-oriented file layouts for credit reports, mortgage insurance bids, flood certifications and so on.
These include residential and commercial standards for processes including:
- Loan origination
MISMO has streamlined workflow, reduced cost and improved the transparency across the industry. However, the implementation of the MISMO XML standards across heterogeneous systems and entities does not come without challenges and costs.
The eiConsole for MISMO bundle provides an integrated development environment which will facilitate the initial development and ongoing maintenance of MISMO compliant interfaces. The eiConsole for MISMO supports the MISMO standard’s unique semantics with built-in features including:
- Transaction templates based on the MISMO specifications
- Drag & Drop data transformation using the MISMO XML Schema (MISMO XSD)
- A MISMO tutorial with step-by-step instructions for generating a MISMO XML compliant message / interface

The MISMO Model Viewer
The MISMO Model Viewer from PilotFish is a free Web-based reference for any Financial Services industry XML schema. Features of the MISMO Model Viewer include:
- Complete documentation of the selected XML Schema Definition (XSD), including any available code lists.
- Menu-driven selection of the XSD and version number.
- Tree-based navigation system, similar to a file system explorer.
- Full-featured search.
- Sortable code list tables.
- Entity, Aggregate and All-Inclusive indexes.
- Extensively hyperlinked, graphically enhanced entity definitions.

The Enterprise Integration Platform (eiPlatform)
The eiPlatform is the Java engine for the high volume, secure, run-time processing of interfaces developed using the eiConsole. By using the eiPlatform, any system(s) or services can be integrated with any other system(s) or services regardless of the platform, operating system, database or which communication protocol is used. Click on the link for more details on the eiPlatform.
The Dashboard is an additional application component that monitors the performance of the eiPlatform. With the Dashboard users can view, trace, analyze and report on transactional interfaces traversing their eiPlatform. Features include the capture of transactional errors, diagnosis and restart, all without requiring changes to the source or target systems participating in the interface.

The XML Validation Tool facilitates automating validation and certification of trading partners’ messages. This allows standardization of initial and ongoing information exchange. As an example, a company that is receiving the same messages from multiple trading partners can “publish” their message formats and rules to allow the trading partners to test their message transactions before going “live”. PilotFish software is also the engine behind DTCC’s own validation service. Click on the link to learn more about the Validation Server.
