XML Conversion Solutions
DataDirect XML Converters — Solutions Overview
Need to publish or access legacy data but are still struggling with legacy data formats like EDI, EDIFACT, X12, IATA, EANCOM and flat files? Take a look and see what DataDirect XML Converters can do for you!
XML is the preferred language for data integration, but many applications need to process legacy data that isn't immediately available in an XML format. DataDirect XML Converters lets you access any legacy file directly from within your Java or Microsoft .NET applications. And if you're using an XML processing component such as DataDirect XQuery, Apache Xalan or Saxon, then you can stream any non-XML formats into XML on the fly directly into your XQuery or XSLT application, including thousands of versions and sub-versions of EDI messages (X12, EDIFACT, and IATA), along with other formats like tab-delimited, comma-separated value (CSV), dBase files, and many more.
Patient data is at the heart of the healthcare enterprise, and as diagnosis and treatments grow in complexity, healthcare IT administrators are constantly challenged with keeping data flowing to the wide array of provider and payer organizations that often comprise an individual patient’s system of care. For providers and payers, XML is a ‘Universal Donor’ technology that offers the potential for streamlined data integration within care networks. By using DataDirect Data Integration Suite to connect disparate data sources and enterprise applications with a loosely-coupled, XML-based infrastructure, healthcare organizations more effectively move data within systems of care.
Data inside a Microsoft® BizTalk® Server (BizTalk) application always moves as XML. Because of this, .NET users often need to integrate conversion operations in the context of BizTalk to manage EDI or legacy formats. Learn how to deploy DataDirect XML Converters for .NET on Microsoft BizTalk to help control the input and output ports of BizTalk applications that need to convert data in native formats to XML.
DataDirect XML Converters for XML Report Generation
One of the key benefits of using XML is its support for Report Generation — the ability to publish a single source of information in many different output formats. Tools for converting XML to HTML, help systems, PDF, and PostScript are mature enough that some mainstream commercial publishers use XML to publish books. And DataDirect XML Converters further extends XML Publishing with XML Report Writing technologies because of its ability to access any non-XML file as XML which can then simply leverage the powerful report generation features inherent in XSLT and XQuery.
DataDirect XML Converters for SOAP and Web Services
SOAP and Web Service architectures produce and consume XML data. DataDirect XML Converters is an ideal way to implement Web services, since it can work as an interface between an incoming request as XML and underlying legacy data in non-XML formats.
DataDirect XML Converters for Dynamic Web Sites
Many web sites are created from database data, often using ASP or JSP. But what if your product catalog or inventory information is stored in a legacy data format? DataDirect XML Converters can be used to directly access the non-XML data sources, and create dynamic HTML pages for use in Websites or to be consumed by AJAX applications.
