 metadata repositories


Informix XML’s Its Metadata Transport Layer
Informix® Corporation, has announced an XML Document Type Definition (DTD) for Extraction, Transformation, and Transport (ETT) of metadata. The DTD is designed

The challenge is creating an all-encompassing DTD that describes all of the types of metadata that could possibly be exchanged between different products. A question that remains is whether Informix is attempting to define all metadata types or just a core set. The presence of a wizard to allow m

Document Management System (DMS)

Document management systems (DMS) assist with the management, creation, workflow, and storage of documents within different departments. A DMS stores documents in a database and associates important information about the documents, to the documents (known as metadata). Most systems provide workflow engines to design and support document creation, publication, and usage. DMS solutions are often used by insurance and health care industries, government bodies, or other organizations processing high volumes of documents.

Docpedia


Docpedia is Flowring’s innovation document management system. Docpedia is flexible to integrate with 3rd party solution, such as in- house BPM (WFMC certified) solution, digital rights management system (DRM), document right management (Viewer) and full text search engine. By flexible integration functionality, Docpedia strengthens itself to maintain data/content integrity and data/content security. Docpeia is a fully integrated document and records management system which seamlessly manages the whole life cycle of electronic documents, folders, and records. Using Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle as its document store, Docpedia allows users to store and retrieve all of their documents and records from one or more managed repositories; adds structure to unstructured information via the assignment of metadata; controls the life of information, from creation to destruction; maintains data integrity through version control and check-in and check out; secures the information so that the right people have the right access privileges; and makes the information easily accessible to users.

The Modelling Approach to Post-implementation Agility in Enterprise Systems


Change happens, and it will always happen in virtually every business environment. The underlying enterprise system should thus be an aid to changing the business, rather than an obstacle, as is the usual case today.

metadata repositories  include managing disparate software metadata repositories (meaning frequent data rationalization and replication), disparate software abstraction incompatibility, and appropriate levels of security. Directing and supplying information on the interaction of services can be complicated, since the architecture relies on complex multiple messaging that opens the door to messy code and broken communication, on top of potential non-compliance with government regulations. The flexibility of SOA poses security th Read More

Is There Finally a Metadata Exchange Standard on the Horizon?


On September 27, a group of vendors including Oracle, IBM, Unisys, NCR, and Hyperion Solutions announced the submission of a metadata interchange standard to the OMG standards body. A common approach to metadata would allow products from different vendors to interact, a problem that has vexed customers for years. But will all the major vendors adopt the standard?

metadata repositories  re-describe all of the metadata within the data movement tool's repository, and that likely can not be shared with any other product. In addition, the user is now forced to ensure that both repositories are synchronized when the source tables change. To alleviate this and other issues, many vendors have been considering using the Extensible Markup Language (XML) standard. The Common Warehouse Metadata Interchange (CWMI) standard is the next step in this effort. The Object Management Group (OMG) is an indu Read More

EAI - The 'Crazy Glue' of Business Applications


When companies create or change trading relationships or when they swap out business application systems, information systems professionals are required to build application system interfaces and alter transaction processing models. Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) Tools have matured nicely and continue to evolve making the job not only more simple but actually offering a preferred alternative to code-data-level integration alternatives. Selection of EAI tools must be based on technical capabilities that support the entire life-cycle of usage.

Metagenix Reverse Engineers Data Into Information


Metagenix’ MetaRecon reverse engineers metadata information by examining the raw data contained in the source(s) rather than depending on the data dictionaries of the existing legacy systems (which are often incorrect). Other unique Metagenix approaches include an "open book" policy, which includes publishing product price lists on their web site and complete access to company officials, including CEO and President Greg Leman. According to Mr. Leman, "we’re pathologically honest".

metadata repositories  engineers all of the metadata ( data about data ) from data sources and generates information that is very helpful to developers in designing specifications for a new data store, and assists greatly in preparing for cleansing and transformation of existing data. The product will also generate ETL (extract/transform/load) scripts based on the information in the MetaRecon repository that can then be compiled and executed in Ascential Software's DataStage product (DataStage was formerly a product of Ardent Read More

Cincom Acknowledges There Is A Composite Applications Environ-ment Out There


Cincom joins a slew of vendors that are aiming at providing a business process improving middleware layer, which will route requests and interventions across the loosely integrated applications, mitigating the need for complex point-to-point integration. Cincom Environ, an 'event-enabled environment' is designed to support most of a company's Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) and Business Process Automation (BPA) needs.

metadata repositories  define event and action metadata that is used to generate BizTalk XML specifications that can be incorporated into a BizTalk Orchestration tool for integrating business process. In other words, Environ's publish-and-subscribe model defines events and publishes them via Microsoft's BizTalk, which in turn assigns the necessary transactions and applications needed to cause future events to occur. Environ includes generic, subscribe-side Active Integration Components (AICs) that call Cincom's and other Read More

How One Vendor Supplies Agility to Post-implementation Enterprise Systems


Agresso's information warehouse, business process, and reporting and analytics information delivery models are inextricably linked in a virtual cycle. A change in any of these core competencies automatically informs a change in the others without instilling business disruption.

metadata repositories  In such cases, this metadata requires constant replication, and complex and costly software systems like master data management [MDM] applications—see SAP Bolsters NetWeaver's MDM Capabilities ). This is particularly true for the large competitive offerings where broad application sets have been enlarged through acquisition rather than organic in-house development. It should now be clearer how the Agresso's information warehouse, business process, and reporting and analytics information delivery models Read More
