4 Successful Integration What are the ingredients for a successful integration project? What are the ingredients for a successful integration project? Cooperation Cooperation Funding $$ Funding $$ Reason Reason Standards Standards Technology Technology Ability Ability

5 Technology & Ability Newer technology gives you the ability Newer technology gives you the ability Types of technology: Types of technology: –Hardware –Software Types of abilities: Types of abilities: –Standardization –Master Indexing –Link Analysis

6 HARDWARE Multi-core processors Multi-core processors Reduced power consumption Reduced power consumption Greater battery life Greater battery life Increased bandwidth Increased bandwidth Virtualization Virtualization Reconfigurable on-the-fly Reconfigurable on-the-fly

7 Multi-core Processors Many physical processors contained within a single chip Many physical processors contained within a single chip Doubles the processing power but not the energy consumption Doubles the processing power but not the energy consumption

8 Reduced Power Consumption Enhanced chipsets Enhanced chipsets –Can reduce power by up to 75% Smaller diameter die process: 90nm Smaller diameter die process: 90nm –Lower operating voltages –Cooler running chips Increased cache size Increased cache size –2Mb vs. 1Mb

9 Greater Battery Life Newer chemicals and materials Newer chemicals and materials –Plastic battery –Carbon nanotube ultracapacitors –Carbon foam battery –Lithium-ion rechargeable technology Fuel cells Fuel cells

10 Fuel Cells & Carbon Nanotubes

11 Increased Bandwidth Smart antennas Smart antennas –MIMO vs. SISO –Multiple frequencies WiMax broadband wireless WiMax broadband wireless Next generation cellular Next generation cellular –EV-DO is Kbps now and will be Kbps eventually –EDGE and HSDPA are 135 Kbps and 700 Kbps (up to 1.8 Mbps burst)

12 MIMO vs. SISO

23 Technology & Ability Newer technology gives you the ability Newer technology gives you the ability Types of technology: Types of technology: –Hardware –Software Types of abilities: Types of abilities: –Standardization –Master Indexing –Link Analysis

24 STANDARDIZATION NEIM NEIM Communications protocols Communications protocols Resource Description Framework (RDF) Resource Description Framework (RDF) Web Services Web Services –WS-* Specifications –SOAP & XML Application functionality Application functionality

25 Technology & Ability Newer technology gives you the ability Newer technology gives you the ability Types of technology: Types of technology: –Hardware –Software Types of abilities: Types of abilities: –Standardization –Master Indexing –Link Analysis

26 MASTER INDEXING Positively identify “object” Positively identify “object” –Person, place or thing Store only immutable information and external links Store only immutable information and external links Discover inconsistencies or incorrect data Discover inconsistencies or incorrect data –Automatically synchronize data Gather best information available Gather best information available –Where is the “object” today?

27 Matching & Merging Data 1. Identify potential data matches 2. Determine most current information 3. Decide on threshold to merge 4. Merge information together

28 Identify Relationships Many objects have direct relationships Many objects have direct relationships –Parent – child – sibling –Owner – object –Place – owner - occupant Identify and expose these within the master index Identify and expose these within the master index

29 Technology & Ability Newer technology gives you the ability Newer technology gives you the ability Types of technology: Types of technology: –Hardware –Software Types of abilities: Types of abilities: –Standardization –Master Indexing –Link Analysis

30 LINK ANALYSIS Examination of relationships to: Examination of relationships to: –Determine previously unknown elements –Create indirect links –Prove flow of property –Follow the evidence –Illustrate the timeline

31 Federated Link Analysis Federated query rather than centralized Federated query rather than centralized Create a SQL Multi Dimensional Database (SMDD) to store data links Create a SQL Multi Dimensional Database (SMDD) to store data links When actively analyzing data, a dynamic query returns all pertinent data to client When actively analyzing data, a dynamic query returns all pertinent data to client Eliminates need for a data warehouse Eliminates need for a data warehouse

32 A Sample Analysis
