• Metadata (data, object & process models) will survive the
methodologies & design tools used to manipulate them.
=> We need to provide solutions independently of modeling techniques,
metadata standards, and current design tools
=> Future proof solutions protecting our metadata assets!
• Data administration & data standardization are not goals, but
key steps towards a complete solution to business problems such
as:
– legacy data migration, database re-engineering
– database (and application) integration, data warehousing, etc.
=>We need to provide total solutions from data standardization to actual system
& data integration: providing measurable results and return on investment!

• Implement a Key Component of the MHS IM/IT's Mission:
“Provide the right information to the right people at the right time to improve and
maintain health status across the entire continuum of health care operations”
• Support the DoD Directives on adopting COTS instead of GOTS
requires data movement solutions for legacy data migration &
application integration.
• Provide TIMPO with a Total Infrastructure Solution (as defined
in Tab G) from networking to actual application integration.
• Support the Data Administration & Standardization Efforts, and
provide Return On Investment (ROI) for these activities:
– Implement the Health Data Standards (FAM-D) in legacy data migrations,
or in Health Data Hubs for MTF Application integration.
– Protect the government assets: the health data model standards will survive
the methodologies & design tools used to develop and maintain them.

• XML is playing a more and more important role in data
integration as a driving force
from Enterprise Application Integration (EAI)
to Internet Application Integration (IAI).
• XML also plays a key role in Microsoft, Oracle and
IBM’s Business Intelligence (BI) and Knowledge
Management (KM) initiatives.
• Database suppliers have integrated XML as a way to
insert, update, delete data (as well as query data):
Microsoft SQL Server 7.5, Oracle 8i.
• XML is everywhere MS Office 2000, Visual Studio, IBM
tools, etc.

XML…

HL7 Winter WG @ San Diego CA, Jan. 24-28 2000
• XML is noisy! Only 10 to 20% of an XML file is actual
data, most of it is XML “metatag noise”…
• New database releases provide XML support that may
not solve your needs, because the XML DTD is imposed
and automatically generated from the database DDL.
Therefore, it does not solve the data integration between
an RDBMS and an externally defined XML DTD (home
made or standard like HL7 or FpML).
• XML is still evolving a lot and is still very incomplete in
many areas like data types for which there are many
variations from the W3C proposed DCD, to vertical
market solutions by HL7, FpML, OMG, MS BizTalk.

• CA/Platinum currently plans to release ERwin 4.0 in Q1
or Q2 of 2000 with new features such as:
– An API and MDC XML will replace the ERX files,
– Support for multiple physical models for one logical model
• Rational will release Rose 2000 and more…
• New players to watch:
– Embarcadero ER/Studio.
– Visio has been acquired by Microsoft and is evolving
• from a good drawing tool with support of UML and IDEF1X notations
• to a design tool with C++, Java, DDL forward and reverse engineering,
Microsoft Repository, and XMI support.

and unfortunately, it never will in a best of breed market…
even with Enterprise Resources Planning (ERP)

HIRS Data Works is a Government-Off-The-Shelf (GOTS) version of
Meta Integration’s Data & Metadata Movement Toolset.
HIRS Data Works’ data movement solution is a development environment which
generates data movement, better known as data bridges (executable code that moves
data from a source to a destination database/application) and which solves three
major categories of business problems:
– Legacy Data Migration (LDM) - in which case the source database is a legacy system that
will be shutdown after the data movement. This situation happens when migrating to a
new database delivered with a new application, or as part of the database re-engineering
of the same application.
– Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) - in which case both source and target
applications are current systems that usually complement each other and require periodic
data updates. The data movement can be enacted in real time (triggers), overnight (batch)
updates, replication, etc.
– Data Warehousing (DW) - in which case the source databases are under corporate
business applications and the target database is in fact your corporate data warehouse.

• In the past, Data Movement has been solved by developing
expensive custom software, in other words by
programming data bridges "by hand".
• This solution is obviously programming intensive and not
at all cost effective.
• In addition, such data bridges are also expensive to
maintain with the evolution (version upgrades) of both the
source and target databases.
• Most data/application integration problems are still
approached in this expensive and inefficient way today.

• Most data movement solutions offered by DW or ETL products make
use of scripting languages often derived from the Basic language,
creating several major drawbacks and complications:
– Such scripting languages are derived from Basic, but are still different from
Visual Basic. Therefore, there can be a steep learning curve for the
implementation.
– Data movement applications built with interpreted scripting languages (e.g.
Basic) are much slower than the ones built with compiled native languages
like C/C++.
– Data movement applications built with scripting languages (e.g. Basic) often
rely on so called data movement servers (interpreting the data
transformations) which require more system administration.
– These data movement servers and/or libraries often involve costly runtime
fees.

• About 500,000 Lines Of Code (LOC) of both Windows/Unix C++ and Java 2
• The Meta Integration Works (MIW) GUI is 100 KLOC (swing based) Java 2
• The Meta Integration Repository SDK is decomposed into
– A non persistent repository (in memory)
• Developed in UML with Rational Rose, and from which a programming language
independent script (shell like) is maintained.
• The C++ and Java SDK are automatically generated (about 100 KLOC each)
• The C++ to Java and Java to C++ layers are also automatically generated
• The Java SDK includes extra features:
– Support for Internet network distribution (client/server):
»
»
Java RMI for the Repository Manager
Java serialization of a non persistent repository (model metadata)
– Support for customizable metadata views in the Model Browser filtering the metadata and
adjusting their names and icons for IDEF1X, UML, MIR, or others.
– A persistent repository portable across RDBMS
• The data model is developed and maintained in IDEF1X with CA/Platinum ERwin
• DDL is generated and tuned for MS NT SQL Server, Access, Oracle 7 to 8
• The MIRDB layer is written in Windows/Unix portable C++ code
