Sample text

To effectively implement an ISC, the suite of tools must be fully capable of participating in this data interchange. Each tool must have an understanding of the nature of the data it is to consume: where it came from; what its various fields mean; what transformations it needs to perform on the data; where the results need to be stored; or what target processes require these results; and so on. The Value Proposition for CWM In Chapter 1, we informally defined meta data as data, information about data, or more precisely as descriptions of information structures.

The model-based solution clearly reduces the costs and complexities of building point-to-point meta data architectures, enhancing the overall ROI of the information supply chain or data warehouse effort. The use of a common metamodel eliminates the need to construct pair-wise meta data bridges and allows for a complete semantic equivalence (Gartner, 2000b) at the meta data level between the various products and tools comprising a typical ISC. 8 shows a model-based, point-to-point meta data integration architecture.

The World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) eXtensible Markup Language (XML) is currently the language of choice for interchanging data over the Web and in any inherently loosely coupled, distributed, asynchronous environment. XML documents are largely self-describing. XML allows for the definition of custom tags that are used to define elements within an XML document. In the world of model-based meta data integration, XML is similarly the meta data interchange medium of choice. Custom XML tags represent concepts defined by the metamodel (once again, a set of formal mapping rules are employed to associate metamodel elements with specific tags).
