Strategie integracji rozproszonych zasobów informacyjnych
STRATEGIES FOR INTEGRATION OF DISTRIBUTED INFORMATION RESOURCES
Languages of publication
The development of information and telecommunication technologies contributes to the creation of new organisational structures, including network and virtual organisations, technology parks and fractals. Different organisations can cooperate only if the coordination of their processes and integration of their systems have been established in advance. The paper discusses solutions for information resource integration. It also explains why integration is indispensable and the elaboration of systems to enable heterogeneous information resources to be linked is necessary. Since new organisational structures change dynamically, traditional integrated solutions based on central databases are not appropriate because they are neither flexible nor scalable. So, new systems enabling the exchange of dispersed data and information must be developed. The paper describes the characteristics of such systems. It also proposes and discusses architecture of the model for heterogeneous information resources integration.
