As information systems are producing vast amounts of data with ever increasing speed and diversity, the management of data is becoming an important part of gaining the information that we need. With this as the motivation, this paper proposes a Manageable Data Sources framework for the systematic management of data sources. The framework is derived from a new conceptual model of data processing: the Faucet-Sink-Drain model. The framework achieves two aims: the unification of data processing, and secondly, the componentization and decoupling of data processing related tasks. The framework is described and a reference architecture is laid out for the creation of a proof-of-concept implementation to solve the given use case.
