The Unspoken Crisis in SOA Projects: Data Discrepancies Prevent Interoperability

MetaMatrix Presents:

The Unspoken Crisis in SOA Projects: Data Discrepancies Prevent Interoperability
Data Services solutions bridge the semantic data gaps and provide data access and interoperability within SOA

Wednesday, March 1, 2006, 3 PM

Speakers:

  • Craig Muzilla, Senior Vice President Marketing and Product Management, MetaMatrix Inc.

Most organizations today are moving steadily toward implementing a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) for standards-based software interoperability. However, SOA projects are significantly delayed or fail due to the challenges of making data accessible and interoperable. With Web services and enterprise service buses (ESBs), we have tackled some of the basic connectivity problems, but data is still not in a form that can be used. These data challenges include, transforming data to comply with specific data models and XML schema, semantic mediation and vocabulary management, providing access to more than one data source, and data cleansing and profiling. And doing it all in a manner that performs well. Within other SOA infrastructure, semantic mediation of data must be hard-coded delaying projects, raising costs, preventing re-use and making maintenance a nightmare. In this unique Webinar MetaMatrix will discuss the data challenges in SOA and the requirements for addressing these challenges. We will discuss the concept of Data services, the primary building block of SOA, where data is de-coupled and abstracted between the data source and the consumer, and where semantic mediation, syntax mediation and other data processing takes place. We'll also discuss how a class of software products called data service management systems is helping companies create, deploy and manage their data services.

What You Will Learn:

  • The data challenges in SOA and Web services - access to multiple sources, XML schema compliant transformation, semantic mediation and vocabulary-based data transformation and reconciliation.
  • The role of ESBs and why they don't address the data challenges
  • The role of Data services and the Data Services Layer within SOA.
  • Data services management systems and how they help companies create, deploy and manage data services.
