Data hubs are optional elements in any solution design. Their core role is to support data reuse between solutions and systems on an extract once use everywhere principle. Alternatively, data hubs can be deployed to enable the independent management and control of key data sets within a dataflow. In either case, they are usually configured to support one of a number of standards-based data models.
Hubs can support a range of support functions similar to brokers but are subject to a number of technical limitations, e.g. only single supplier service component can be attached and only object level integration is supported. Hubs can be message (event) based or bulk based.
