-            Apache Object Oriented Data Technology (OODT) is a smart 
-            way to integrate and archive your processes, your data, and its 
-            metadata. It facilitates the creation, acquisition, and growth of
-            data management and archiving systems. OODT spans
-            disciplines and enables interoperability among data agnostic 
-            systems in any field.

archive your
+            processes, your data, and its metadata.  It spans scientific and other disciplines
and enable interoperability among data agnostic systems in the varying fields.  Using OODT's
framework
+            of distributed objects and databases, the data collected by scientists and engineers
in
+            disparate disciplines can be jointly searched, stored, retrieved, and analyzed.
It facilitates

-            Organizations currently have “heroes” who create processing 
-            pipelines by mashing together one-off custom scripts. Those 
-            organizations that lack “heroes” end up performing a series of 
-            forgettable and barely repeatable manual steps. Haphazard 
-            processing pipelines are not effective workflows. While these 
-            scripts “get the job done,” they fail to capture the intent or to
-            evolve with an organization. OODT replaces this haphazard and 
-            unstructured process. OODT allows older workflows to co-exist 
-            with current workflows, and archived products to be better 
-            understood, reproduced, and repurposed in the future. OODT
-            gives end users and developers the ability to understand and 
-            evolve these workflows long after the initial developer leaves.
+            Processing pipelines are too often one-off custom solutions that fail to scale
and
+            evolve as systems evolve.  Moreover, archived data undergoes a kind of atrophy
as the
+            tools used to analyze and process it are themselves one-off solutions with no
maintenance.
+            These haphazard approaches achieve only short term success, but are not effective
in data search,
+            discovery, analysis, cataloging, processing, or archiving.  OODT replaces these
manual,
+            forgettable steps with reliable workflows through distributed data grids.  OODT
ensures
+            the usability and value of data even after original developers move on.

-Haphazard processing pipelines are commonly made up of custom UNIX shell scripts and/or fragile
custom written glue code of Java, Python, and Perl. OODT uses structured XML-based capturing
of the processing pipeline that can be understood and modified by non-programmers to create,
edit, manage and provision workflow and task execution.
