Recognizing the critical interdependence between enterprise data integration and service-oriented architectures (SOA), Informatica Corporation announced it has joined the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS), a consortium focused on the development and adoption of SOA standards and protocols. Informatica's membership in OASIS highlights the rich, data-focused functionality and shared-services approach that a data integration platform provides an SOA to reduce IT complexity and ensure data consistency.

"Data integration technologies play a crucial role in enabling an SOA to deliver on its full potential. Conversely, SOA provides a flexible and interoperable framework for implementing data integration capabilities across a broad variety of platforms and systems," said James Bryce Clark, director of standards development at OASIS. "Participation in OASIS will enable Informatica to team with other industry experts to further the development of common, open standards for service-oriented data integration."
