  6. 6. Data Integration Problem 6
  7. 7. Why Data Integration Matters 7 “When you have data coming at you from too many different sources, you run into a data integration challenge. As near as I can tell, that is what is causing problems for nearly every major enterprise on the planet. Most enterprises are siloed, meaning they have independently constructed data stores, perhaps for each business unit. The problem comes when these business units want to integrate their data” “Benefit we expect from Big Data depends on seamless data integration. Solving the problem of how to improve data integration is going to be key in getting the most benefit from all the data being created” Computer scientist specializing in database research. 2005 IEEE John von Neumann Medal and 2014 ACM Turing Award Winner. Michael Ralph Stonebraker
  8. 8. In Engineering: Many Data Silos 8 Product Lifecycle Management (PLM)/ Mechanical Engineering Application Lifecycle Management (ALM)/ Software Engineering Business Intelligence/ Analytics Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)/ Manufacturing etc. How can I establish traceability How do I know what is related to what? How can I assess the impact of a change? How can I manage changes/updates?
  9. 9. Link Enabling APIs 9
  10. 10. Link-Enabling APIs For Humans To Connect Data Across Silos As Needed 10
  11. 11. Resource Discovery Through Hypermedia without Switching Applications 11 Application #1 can discover data of Application #2 and display possible link targets to the user within Application #1 Web API 1 can discover API Resources of API 2 and display possible link targets to the user within Web App 2 i
  12. 12. Hypermedia Example To Discover URL 12 What is the URL of the Web page describing a specific soccer game? As a user, I know the main entry point Web page (e.g. I also know the category of the game (e.g. Bundesliga) And then I can find the specific game and its URL (e.g. undesliga-4667193/spielbericht ) Entry Point List of data containers Resources of a specific type within a container URL of specific resource
  13. 13. Hypermedia Applied to an API 13 All OSLC APIs support the discovery of resources exposed by the API according to: ● Data container ● Version of data container ● Resource type ● Sometimes full-text search Entry Point List of data containers Resources of a specific type within a container URL of specific resource
