Abstract: This paper presents general issues emphasized by the new era of Extreme Intensive Data Computation. We have analyzed and spotted the first three major problems: resource optimization, heterogeneous software ecosystems, and data transfer. From this point we advocate for a middleware solution offering a very modular and maintainable system for data analysis. As computations must be designed and described by specialists in astronomy, we aim to define a friendly specific programming language. Thus researchers will be able to configure and express their requests in a manner abstracted from computer science specific parts. With this method we expect substantial benefits in computing capabilities in data analysis.
