ABSTRACT
Research of automatic integration of structured and semi-structured data has not resulted in success over the past fifty years. No theory of data integration exists. It is unknown what the theoretical necessary requirements are, to fully support automatic data integration from autonomous heterogeneous data sources. Therefore, it is not possible to objectively evaluate if and how much new algorithms, techniques, and specifically Data Definition Languages, move towards meeting such theoretical requirements. To overcome the serious reverse salient the field and industry are in, it will be helpful if a data integration theory would be developed. This article proposes a new look at data integration by using complex adaptive systems principles to analyze current shortcomings and propose a direction that may lead to a data integration theory.
