This research-in-progress paper introduces the concept of data mediation and a typical mediation architecture used by previous solutions, points out limitations of this architecture and states why meta-model can be adopted for better interoperability. Based on the latest meta-model standard from Object Management Group - CWM, a new mediation architecture is proposed. Final discussion is on future research in terms of prototyping, toolkit and formalizing meta-model standard for data mediation.
