The analysis of data stored in heterogeneous data sources requires the support of a suitable platform allowing the acquisition and analysis of heterogeneous information. The heterogenity of the data source may concern the use of different technologies and representation of data representing the same concept and/or concepts to be aggregated in different ways. In order to deal with this research issue, this paper proposes a generalized platform for creating a virtual view of the heterogeneous data sources and allowing the acquisition and analysis of heterogeneous data. The usefulness of the proposed platform is validated through a case study, regarding the acquisition and analysis of healthcare heterogeneous data. Tye acquisition is performed without knowing details regarding each single data source.
