ZapNote: NeoCore
Rather than being forced to map XML documents to an alternate data representation format or insert an entire XML document into a single field as is the case with XML-enabled RDBMS, the Native XML Data Store (NXD) can accept XML documents for storage and retrieval without any modifications, mapping, or transformations. NeoCore provides a patented NXD approach that assigns a unique fingerprint called an "icon" to each XML document and then applies hashing and storage techniques to these iconic representations. This approach allows the user to experience speed and indexing improvements over other methods of XML storage and retrieval and exploits XML structure by self-constructing the data store, reducing development time.[hide -1]Download File[/hide][hide +0]Register to Access this Document[/hide]…

XML Data Storage Technologies & Trends
While file systems, relational, and object-oriented database management systems have met our needs in prior years for data storage and retrieval, XML imposes new requirements on how that information needs to be stored so that it can be retrieved in a structured, hierarchical manner. This ZapThink report, “XML Data Storage Technologies and Trends” covers the various commercial options that focus on meeting the requirements for XML storage and retrieval, and identifies benefits, disadvantages, key market drivers, and sizing and growth of the market for these products.[hide -2]Download File[/hide][hide +1]Purchase: $1495[/hide]…

XML Data Storage Technologies and Trends
Key Findings: XML content needs to be stored in a manner that it can be searched and retrieved back in XML format. This seemingly simple requirement has profound impact for existing data storage technologies. Expenditure on XML Storage solutions will grow from $75 million in 2000 to over $4.1 Billion (US) in 2005 XML-enabled RDBMS vendors consumed only 15% of that market in 2000, but will consume over 65% of the total expenditure by 2005. Native XML Data Store (NXD) vendors will realize around $1.6 Billion in revenue by 2005 The primary methods in use today for storing XML documents include XML-enabled (or extended) relational databases, NXDs, Content Management stores, and file systems. NXDs will increasingly become a solution of choice for storage of document-oriented XML content as well as Web Services, B2B messaging, and other transactional formats. RDBMS vendors will continue to add XML support to their systems…

SOA Consulting
Service-Oriented Architectures (SOAs) represent an evolutionary approach to distributed computing that promises a flexible IT environment that leads to business agility. As companies look to leverage the business advantages of Web Services to address strategic business needs, they are increasingly looking to build SOAs. However, SOAs require special skills and expertise. When companies do not have such skills in-house, they turn to consultants, system integrators, and other professional services organizations. The movement to SOAs present both opportunities and threats to consulting firms: on the one hand, there will be an increased demand for architectural consulting, business process consulting and the implementation tasks associated with building SOAs. On the other hand, as SOAs take hold and Service-oriented process solutions supplant integration solutions, the market for system integration will dry up, requiring system integrators to change their business focus. This report analyzes the market for SOA within professional services organizations from three…

ZapNote: Backstream
One of the biggest challenges for producers and publishers of content is the publication of that content onto multiple platforms: print, the Web, PDF, wireless, and other forms. The main challenge is that each of these forms carry their own inherent formatting capabilities, navigation structures, distribution characteristics, and rights management capabilities. BackStream provides software solutions that help businesses manage their content, deliver it to multiple devices, and track and trace usage. The system provides a single platform that takes care of content creation, storage, publishing, distribution, tracking and tracing content such as text, photos, images, PDF files, and audio and video files.[hide -1]Download File[/hide][hide +0]Register to Access this Document[/hide]…

ZapNote: eXcelon
There are two major categories of XML data store: extensions to relational database systems (RDBMS) and a new category of "Native" XML data stores (NXDs). While extensions to RDBMS systems simply enable RDBMS databases to map XML documents to relational tables, NXDs allow users to insert XML documents directly into the system without need for mapping or interacting with anything besides the XML document. eXcelon’s eXtensible Information Server (XIS) is an "XML data management system (XDBMS)" that is aimed squarely at the problem of storing arbitrarily structured XML documents. Among other features, XIS provides node level management of XML data, dealing with XML document information at the element level, rather than the document level.[hide -2]Download File[/hide][hide +1]Purchase: $395[/hide]…

ZapNote: Infonyte
The increasing use of XML is necessitating a general storage and retrieval system that can handle the specific needs of XML document archival. Infonyte provides a Native XML Data store (NXD) solution that is a compact called Infonyte-DB that uses a persistent implementation of the Document Object Model (DOM) as its primary storage mechanism.[hide -2]Download File[/hide][hide +1]Purchase: $395[/hide]…

ZapNote: Mozquito
Mozquito Technologies AG produces a suite of development tools targeted at advanced interactive "form" development using XForms , XHTML, and their Forms Markup Language (FML) in its Mozquito Factory and Matrix product lines. This is important, since like XML, forms represent a structured interchange of data. Forms provide additional specific features such as workflow, auto-fill, and pre-fill form applications that are supported through the use of instance data.[hide -2]Download File[/hide][hide +1]Purchase: $395[/hide]…

ZapNote: XYZFind
XYZFind provides a general-purpose NXD storage and retrieval system for XML documents, regardless of their content or schema. XYZFind aims to solve the problem of search and query over identifiable "islands of data" where the content its too varied to accommodate with file system tools. XYZFind’s utilizes a proprietary query language and has a proprietary, text-based storage architecture that utilizes a meta-schema encompassing an aggregate, schema-independent view of the data.[hide -2]Download File[/hide][hide +1]Purchase: $395[/hide]…
