Although XML offers heterogeneous IT systems a new level of interoperability, it doesn't ensure that the various systems correctly interpret the data they receive. To address this, data engineering supports clear definitions for exchanged data elements. With model-based data engineering, organizations use a common reference model, which offers further clarity and performance improvements. Organizations can use the resulting data to configure mediation services, translating dialects of new or legacy services into a common language for use in a service-oriented architecture.
