    5. 5. Background – Data as a Service<br />Why<br />Authoritative/master data sources<br />Unlock data silos to leverage existing information assets<br />Integrate with reporting, analytics, and collaboration tools to improve decision making<br />Self-service data mashups<br />Design criteria<br />Neutral technology<br />Choice of API <br />Choice of data format<br />Choice of query language<br />Choice of …<br />Did you know standards exist?<br />
    6. 6.
    7. 7. Benefits of aligning to standards<br />Functionality<br />Generic mechanisms for representing data and relationships between data<br />Query semantics for searching, filtering, sorting your data<br />Less code you have to write, support and maintain.<br />Good design<br />API stability<br />Efficiency<br />Extensibility<br />Backward/forward compatibility<br />API versioning<br />Paging<br />Don’t reinvent the wheel!<br />
    8. 8. Benefits of aligning to standards<br />Inter-operability<br />Native support in applications means little or no integration work<br />Supportability<br />Online community available to you<br />Easier to find support and maintenance staff<br />Web friendly<br />Supports selective partner integration<br />Aligns well to modern computing approaches such as cloud and mobile computing<br />RESTful<br />Resource centric approach aligns very well to data services<br />Easier for your end users<br />Benefits from piggybacking off HTTP (caching, security, etc)<br />
    9. 9. It’s not just about technology<br />Integrated capability<br />Technology<br />Process<br />People<br />Culture<br />
    10. 10. Pistoia wants to gauge your interest<br />Should Pistoia align to these standards in Pistoia portfolio projects?<br />Will you align to these standards in your projects/products?<br />Are you interested in future informational sessions like this one?<br />
