Both are different..
You can consider Data Transformation as a tool to transform data, whereas Data Exchange as an orchestration tool.
You can use Data Transformation to read source data in any format and structure (pretty much) and then transform it to any other format and structure. For example, you can have an excel or xml as input source, and can transform it to a relational format; or you can have relational data (i.e. data from databases) as source and generate xml or text files. You can also apply a number of transformations and business logic on the data.
Data exchange is used chiefly for managing different workflows by allowing the user to easily change parameters, and for scheduling different workflows in a complex manner. Also, Data Exchange supports JMS and can be used with real-time workflows where complex data orchestration is required.
