Abstract:

Intranet technologies like web based databases, groupware and e-mail represent the next major stage in the evolution of computing and it is greatly expected that they will increase the return on information technology investments. Almost every organization can benefit from an intranet or extranet. Some of the major benefits of an intranet can be counted as cost effectiveness, simplified system integration and growth, easy extension into WAN, enhanced security, minimized application development and deployment cost, minimized cost of deploying client - server solutions, minimized network management and support costs. Since International Programs Office IPO has several computers connected to a LAN and has an IP address, and one of its tasks is to maintain the International Students records, they should have a good Database System that can be accessed by all the users of the office. To solve the inefficiency and ineffectiveness that relates to database system that depends on International Students Assistant, we recommend that IPO has to have an intranet system with a dynamic database connectivity. Intranet may solve the communication problem to share information within the organization and may provide better services for the other users.
