Radiant Logic Releases Context Server Based On Data Virtualization
RadiantOne VCS Introduces a Semantic Layer to Enable Context Driven Integration of Data Services

Radiant Logic announced the Context Server. The RadiantOne Virtual Context Server (VCS) expands upon Radiant Logic’s identity virtualization platform. By extracting contextual information buried in application silos, RadiantOne VCS enables better integration of business processes.

RadiantOne VCS publishes information out of application silos by dynamically generating English sentences out of application metadata. Those sentences are organized into meaningful views acting as contextual links across business processes. This enables information to be searched, retrieved across application silos and updated in the right context.

As noted by Forrester Research’s report, Information-As-A-Service: Delivering Real-Time Information Drives Market Toward Mainstream on May 2, 2008, “Enterprises increasingly need the ability to search information across the organization more easily and quickly to meet business and legal requirements and to support information and knowledge workers. Yet searching across many types of databases and content can pose a challenge, especially if the data is archived or stored in multiple content repositories of different types.”

This information, often in the form of transactional data in the enterprise, is fragmented across business functions and buried into forms and application logic. Integrating this information without a common semantic layer has been a constant challenge of data integration. RadiantOne VCS bridges the void between understanding transactions within and across silos by translating low level data transactions into English sentences.

“By generating plain English sentences out of transactional data and linking those sentences by context, RadiantOne VCS creates a radical new way to integrate data silos,” said Claude Samuelson, PhD and vice president of engineering at Radiant Logic, Inc. “RadiantOne VCS’ patent-pending technology enables a simple keyword search (such as

Google) to reveal the who, what, when, how, and why of data, all while enforcing the security that is critical to applications and users. And because RadiantOne VCS understands the nature of relationships between objects within an existing application, updates are performed within the context of an existing process.”

RadiantOne VCS builds upon Radiant Logic’s identity virtualization platform, which includes the company’s flagship product RadiantOne Virtual Directory Server (VDS).

“We see customers asking for a Virtual Directory that provides a unified and comprehensive view of all users across disparate data sources and the contextual assets tied to each,” said Steve Lewis, identity management architect at Advanced Systems Engineering Corporation. “By linking this wealth of information and exposing it in a manner that applications can consume, within a security-enabled layer, we are able to successfully provide a rich and secure profile of our customers and services.”

The release of RadiantOne VCS is in direct response to the need for contextual representation of data in the security and integration space from virtual data services to MDM/CDI systems. According to a recent Gartner presentation, "To enable ‘what you need is what you get’ services, adaptive, contextual (virtual) identity will be the single most important piece of context."

The previously mentioned Forrester report also notes, “Increasing business demand for near-real-time delivery of high-quality information in context is driving enterprise architects and application developers toward new service-oriented ways of accessing and integrating enterprise information."

“On one hand, we know that the future of the Web is more semantic; on the other hand, SOA, WOA (REST services) are turning more and more silos into actionable services,” said Chris Shipley, executive producer of the DEMO Conferences. “However, we still need a layer to tie all those objects and services together; to organize them into meaningful, searchable, and actionable contexts. I believe Context Server could be the pragmatic bridge between those worlds.”
