What are the benefits?

  • Personalized and real-time configurable views of an integrated heterogeneous data environment (relational databases, XML documents, object-oriented databases, frame-based knowledge bases, multimedia, etc.)

  • Users and applications focus on asking the right questions because ADINA insulates them from underlying data source schemas, ontologies, query languages, interrelationships, and terminology.

  • Access language is closer to natural language, making the queries easier to express by application programmers.

  • Data sources remain autonomous because they just "describe" themselves to ADINA. They do not need to conform to metadata standards or provide software wrappers.

  • Loose coupling between users and data. When data source structures change, the applications still work.

  • Scalability - diverse sources can be integrated and modified with ease.
