Schema Matching and Integration for Data Sharing Among Collaborating Organizations
Source: Academy Publisher
Schema matching and schema integration are important components of the data sharing infrastructure in Collaborative Networks. In order to achieve more accurate matching and integration results and enhance efficiency, it is required to provide some mechanisms to carry out these processes as automatically as possible. This paper addresses the problems and challenges related to schema matching and schema integration and introduces the Semi-Automatic Schema Matching and INTegration (SASMINT) system to automate these processes. Other systems aiming at database interoperability typically focus either on schema matching or on schema integration.
