In our increasingly digitized and networked world, the rapid evolution of technology can cause significant problems for companies who’s business model involves sharing data with others. New information sources and formats can be time-consuming to incorporate into the existing infrastructure.

Within the aviation industry, integrated applications provide and distribute information to air navigation service providers, airlines, and others. The information being shared might be weather data, or flight plans, or notices to airmen (NOTAMS) about the status of airports on their flight route.

Within these data, there is some information that can be publicly shared, and other information that either needs to be kept private or can only be distributed to authorized users. Managing the fine-grained control of data distrubition can complicate matters even more.

One way to address these issues is by using a service registry to manage a subscription and publication infrastructure connected by an enterprise service bus. Registries are flexible, so they can be extended to accommodate new data sources and formats quickly and cost-effectively.
