Building Web Sites from Legacy Systems

An infraNET Project

Many organizations have existing or legacy computer systems to store and provide information to various client groups, and making this information accessible often requires the development of special reporting systems. With the advent of the World-Wide Web and Web browsers, the creation of user interfaces for reports from these legacy systems is simplified, although far from complete. Research is in progress to investigate tools and mechanisms to make these legacy systems more accessible through the World-Wide Web. In doing so, information can still be housed in the most appropriate system, duplication of information is avoided, and time to maintain and present the information should be minimized.
