  5. Why Istat is starting to use SDMX SDMX Istat Framework For this reason Istat is following the evolution of the SDMX initiative with interest: Tactically: through the participation in the EUROSTAT SODI task force Strategically: through the building of a special working group whose main objective is to analyze and verify the use of SDMX in the internal architecture of ISTAT Information System Geneva 10-11 May 2007 OECD SDMX Expert Group

  6. Why Istat is starting to use SDMX SDMX Istat Framework The participation in the EUROSTAT SODI initiative has involved Istat to gain experience in the use of XML and Web Services technologies for integration purpose inside Statistical Information Systems. In order to facilitate this objective, we are developing several software modules organized in a framework (current version is 1.0) Geneva 10-11 May 2007 OECD SDMX Expert Group

  7. SDMX Istat Framework version 1.0 SDMX Istat Framework • Characteristics: • compatible to SODI needs • useful to introduce SDMX for both internal purposes and external information exchange • can be used entirely from the reporting phase to the dissemination phase, or alternatively using modules separately, integrating them into one information system • in the future it might be possible to distribute the framework under Public Licence Geneva 10-11 May 2007 OECD SDMX Expert Group

  9. SDMX Istat Framework version 1.0 SDMX Istat Framework • Overview of changes in the Loader module: • New dissemination functions were added in order to satisfy some SODI requirements: • to publish an RSS; • to publish on or more SDMX Query file(s); • to publish one or more SDMX Compact file(s) (optional) Geneva 10-11 May 2007 OECD SDMX Expert Group

  11. SDMX Istat Framework version 1.0 SDMX Istat Framework • Overview of SDMX Web Navigator module: • This module acts as a client towards the web service and represents a web graphic interface that allows the following functions: • building a SDMX Query using DSDs as analysis dimensions • sending the SDMX Query to the web service for querying the database • Testing the SDMX Queries that a user can build starting from SDMX Queries created with the graphic interface • demo Geneva 10-11 May 2007 OECD SDMX Expert Group

  13. SDMX Istat Framework version 2.0 SDMX Istat Framework • A generalized SDMX Query parse module (beta version): • This module accepts only queries with DataWhere section but also accept queries regarding: • different Dataflows • subsets of different DataFlows • A SDMX Query is processed by the following steps: • rewrites the XML stream using Boolean logic rules, and adding to each node an attribute that acts as a “unique key”. The scope of the unique key is to set a hierarchy between “parent nodes” and “child nodes”; • converts the XML stream in a memory tabular data structure whose columns represent all types of nodes (Time, Dimension, Attribute, Dataflow) except for And and Or; • re-organizes the in-memory tabular data structure so that all columns have an And relation, and all rows have an Or relation; • converts the in-memory tabular structure in a SQL query Geneva 10-11 May 2007 OECD SDMX Expert Group
