The MEERA Platform provides support for handling a wide variety of data types, through a flexible data access stack:
- The lowest layer of the data access stack is a physical layer implemented using a combination of the PPDM 3.9 RDBMS schema as a structured database, and a highly scalable bulk data storage management system for handling.
- The next layer in the data access stack is a business object layer consisting of database stored procedures that implement logical business objects including full create/update/delete logic.
- The final layer in the data access stack are workflow business objects. This allows the solution developer to work with a view of the attributes and entities needed by a particular business process.
- A data integration service allows the platform to perform, create, read, update and delete operations on entities in any connected data source. The data integration service acts as a virtual data server, with content defined by a fully configurable meta-model that allows customers to extend the blueprint to their specific environment.
