ICE (Information and Content Exchange)

The ICE specification, originally developed in 1998 by a community of 80 content providers and software venders, provides businesses with an XML-based common language and architecture to facilitate automated delivery, update and management of content assets in a trusted fashion without manual packaging or knowledge of remote Web-site structures.   Today, the ICE 2.0 Specification provides automated content syndication using XML and Web Services messaging.  If you are looking for a way to leverage the power of Web Services to automate data delivery, ICE may be your answer.
