  5. 5. This is of course a trivial example… but, Why did it work? <ul><li>Standardised interface </li></ul><ul><li>IMAP </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Both services supported this interface, as did the client application </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The interface was bidirectional </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Standardised data format </li></ul><ul><li>email </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Both services could parse the same data </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. If we were dealing with something less trivial Why wouldn’t it work? <ul><li>Lack of standardised interfaces </li></ul><ul><li>Lack of standardised data format </li></ul><ul><li>ETL(aaS) becomes a big deal </li></ul><ul><ul><li>to cope with impedance mismatches </li></ul></ul><ul><li>But… beware bitrot on Transformation. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Target schemas may not support full range of import data set </li></ul></ul>
