Accessing integrated databases leads to the performance of searching and matching of data. Data can be redundant and found with different business contexts in different integrated databases. Usually, accessing data from integrated databases is accomplished by using each databasepsilas own catalogue or metadata schema. A generic strategy is adopted to consolidate distinct catalogue schemas of federated databases to access information seamlessly. This strategy involves matching of structure objects and data values across federated databases in a grid environment. In this paper, the concept of grid services is introduced to manage the importance of data search and matching within an OGSA-DAI (open grid services architecture - data access integration) environment.
