XAware 5: Open Source Data Integration Software
Data integration, data abstraction, and data Services are core needs when considering SOA. Legacy databases alone do not provide adequate ways to represent information in the context of SOA. However, the use of a data abstraction layer allows architects to define virtual schemas using better logical structures that offer a more effective fit for SOA implementations.
The bundling of data integration as an open source solution further increases the value of this approach. Open source SOA solutions provide two major advantages: first, they are typically less expensive than proprietary tools and technology. Second, they are often simpler and easier to understand and use. XAware’s open source model is a key differentiator in the data integration marketplace.
