Data Distribution Functional Layer
Build own applications using Global IDs API.
In this layer, the software helps expose metadata, domains and semantic objects through a web services API. The intent is to support other users, who can build their own applications using the Global IDs REST API to retrieve information about the data ecosystem.
In this manner, users can search columns associated with semantic objects, semantic domains and metadata across the enterprise data landscape from other applications installed anywhere in the network. Actionable Web Services enables you to invoke and execute SOAP 1.1 compliant web services. API Designer enables you to expose JSON data using REST web services.
