Presentation Summary:

Unlike traditional web services or business services, data services are specialized, granular and data-centric services that enable data access to disparate data sources in a service-oriented world. While wrapping a business application with a web service often works very well, simply wrapping a data source connection with a web service does not. Without special consideration such as data quality, latency and modality requirements, enterprise applications and mashups will fail with inconsistent and inaccurate data.

In this presentation, Naresh Govindaraj and Wei Zheng will explain how one can use a single integrated and model-driven data services platform, to solve common data integration challenges in a SOA environment. The solution makes use of a standards-based data abstraction layer to deliver consistent, timely and accurate data services to a variety of enterprise applications.
