organizations to increase the efficiency of their business. The XML
registry/repository is a versatile tool which helps to given employees,
customers, and partners (internally and externally) scaleable,
searchable, customizable, and secure role based access to critical
information using standard protocols. The repository can store XML, web
services, or any other type of data, and the registry manages the entire
life cycle of information in the repository using sophisticated
meta-data technology.
