DataDirect Data Integration Suite Features XQuery 4.0, XML Converters and Stylus Studio 2009

Suite eases XML data integration

DataDirect announced the latest release of the DataDirect Data Integration Suite featuring new versions of its XML-based component technologies for data integration in traditional and service-oriented environments. Designed to meet the data transformation and aggregation needs of developers, the DataDirect Data Integration Suite contains the latest product releases of DataDirect XQuery, DataDirect XML Converters (Java and .NET) and Stylus Studio in one simple, highly flexible and robust installation.

The latest version of the DataDirect Data Integration Suite boasts new features and functionality to help maximize developer productivity, reduce the need for manual coding and accelerate the delivery of mission-critical information to enterprise applications and end-users.

DataDirect XQuery 4.0
DataDirect XQuery is an XQuery processor that enables developers to access and query XML, relational data, Web services, EDI, legacy, or a combination of data sources. New to version 4.0 is full support for the XQuery Update Facility (XUF) - an extension of the XQuery language that allows making changes to data manipulated inside the XQuery. Now developers can update individual XML documents, XML streams, and file collections from within their XQuery applications. The product also includes the ability to update and create Zip files, supporting the OpenOffice XML format.

These new performance features and the new Web services support and streaming and document projection enhancements found in DataDirect XQuery 4.0 allow developers to build and deploy applications more quickly and efficiently by dramatically simplifying the combining and processing of heterogeneous data sources and varied data formats.

DataDirect XML Converters 4.0
DataDirect XML Converters are high-performance Java and .NET components that provide developers with a scalable product for converting between EDI and other legacy formats and ready-to-use XML.

The latest release of the DataDirect XML Converters are reported as fully compatible with Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 and are integrated in the Microsoft BizTalk development environment for the streamlined use of XML Converters in the .NET environment.

For healthcare organizations needing to comply with the X12 electronic data interchange (EDI) standards and the latest Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) 5010 transaction definitions, the DataDirect XML Converters now include support for the HIPAA EDI dialects including 004010A1, 005010 and 005010A1 messages.

Further enhancements found in version 4.0 include the ability to handle Standard Exchange Format (SEF) extensions and EDI customizations to make managing XML conversion even easier. Click here to learn more.

Stylus Studio 2009 XML Enterprise Suite
Stylus Studio, the XML Integrated Development Environment (IDE), features new XML productivity tools designed to further simplify and automate frequently encountered programming and data integration tasks.

Stylus Studio 2009 has a new EDI to XML module that works with DataDirect XML Converters to further enhance ease-of-use. Users can now load EDI documents to view contents, test conversions, create customizations and preview XML. The IDE also features a new EDI to XQuery document wizard and EDI to XSD document wizard that allows users to create XQuery and generate XML schema based on any of the EDI dialects supported by the DataDirect XML Converters that are bundled with Stylus Studio.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
As businesses adopt functionalities in cloud computing, it’s imperative that IT operations consistently ensure cloud systems work correctly – all of the time, and to their best capabilities. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Bernd Harzog, CEO and founder of OpsDataStore, will present an industry answer to the common question, “Are you running IT operations as efficiently and as cost effectively as you need to?” He will expound on the industry issues he frequently came up against as an analyst, and...
Keeping pace with advancements in software delivery processes and tooling is taxing even for the most proficient organizations. Point tools, platforms, open source and the increasing adoption of private and public cloud services requires strong engineering rigor - all in the face of developer demands to use the tools of choice. As Agile has settled in as a mainstream practice, now DevOps has emerged as the next wave to improve software delivery speed and output. To make DevOps work, organization...
The financial services market is one of the most data-driven industries in the world, yet it’s bogged down by legacy CPU technologies that simply can’t keep up with the task of querying and visualizing billions of records. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Jared Parker, Director of Financial Services at Kinetica, will discuss how the advent of advanced in-database analytics on the GPU makes it possible to run sophisticated data science workloads on the same database that is housing the rich inf...
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing and analyzing streaming data is the Lambda Architecture, represent...
My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle.
