Once the logical data model is defined and mapped to physical data sources, it serves as a "virtual database" that is accessible as a Web service across multiple delivery channels by employees, customers, or trading partners, regardless of what applications they use.
Key features include a GUI integration environment, web services and JCA adaptors to a variety of data sources, and a flow-based rules engine.
Journée Enterprise Data Hub 2.4 is available June 2003. Pricing begins at $150,000.
