A lightweight data integration architecture using Atom
Williamson, David W; Stanger, Nigel
Cost is a major obstacle to the adoption of large-scale data integration solutions by small to medium enterprises (SME’s). We therefore propose a lightweight data integration architecture built around the Atom XML syndication format, which may provide a cost-effective alternative technology for SME’s to facilitate data integration, compared to expensive enterprise grade systems. The paper discusses the underlying principles and motivation for the architecture, the structure of the architecture itself, and our research goals.
