The Dataware Manifesto
Source: University of Nottingham
In this paper, the authors concern themselves with Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) in the "Business To Consumer" (B2C) arena. In particular they consider the services required to enable consumers to combine data they possess with data held about them by businesses and government. They introduce the concept of dataware as the logical federation of data sources containing "My data" and discuss an SOA to deliver new and compelling services and applications able to reap the benefits of value-in-use for consumers.
