Operational Service Bus vs Corporate Service Bus

A definition of Corporate Service Bus here

"A corporate service bus serves as the global dataspace and supports semantic harmonization for the entire organization. All business events are published in this global dataspace to make them company wide available in a canonical format"

"it promotes a canonical data model which is common to all business units"

Operational Service Bus

"decouples business applications and services from operational data and legacy applications"

So an Enterprise Application can use 2 buses : one - the Corporate - which glues together all services; the other - the Operational - gluing the services to the legacy and data layer.
