Information as a Service

Information as a Service Overview
Information as a Service (IaaS) is a proven approach to efficient service provision. Thinking about information and data as separate from the processes that use them is one key element. This relatively low cost approach will enable departments to maximize service quality and provide cost savings. It is also an essential step if cloud computing is being considered.

Information service provides a simplified, integrated view of real-time, high-quality information about a specific business entity, such as a customer or product. Information is provided in the form needed, including XML, SQL tables, or files. Information is often delivered through SOA infrastructure.
