This position paper provides a short summary of results obtained so far on a mediation-based application-driven approach for EIS development. This approach has significant advantages over the conventional, information resource driven approach. Basic methods for the application-driven approach are discussed including synthesis methods of canonical information models unifying models of various kinds of heterogeneous information sources in one extensible model, methods of identification of sources relevant to an application and their registration at the mediator applying GLAV techniques as well as ontological contexts reconciliation methods. Methodology of EIS application development according to the approach is briefly discussed emphasizing importance of a mediator consolidation phase by the respective community, application problem formulations in canonical model and their rewriting into the requests to the registered information sources. The technique presented is planned to be used in various EIS and information systems.
