Understanding the Global Data Space

Some time ago I considered the Enterprise Service Bus as a data bus to implement a company wide Global Data Space.

I also posted a blog entry on the ESB evolving to a Universal Data Bus over the Internet.

If you want to understand some of the benefits of these concepts, you should read this small but very interesting paper on the OMG's Data-Distribution Service (DDS) which addresses the DoD's vision on the Global Information Grid.

Combined with the current ideas on (Complex) Event Processing, declarative process definitions and Software as a Service, you might recognize where the world is moving to.
