A common characteristic of today's information systems is the distribution of data among a number of autonomous and heterogeneous repositories. Increasingly, these repositories are database management systems, but there is still a very large volume of data that is stored in file systems, spreadsheets, and other forms. A fundamental challenge in building next-generation information systems is to provide interoperability among these autonomous and potentially heterogeneous repositories. The commercial state-of-the-art practice in addressing the interoperability of DBMSs is to build gateways. This approach is quite restricted and provides only a partial solution. None of these systems properly deal with semantic or structural heterogeneity of the stored data.
