The Management Perspective of Database Reengineering
When existing hardware and/or software are replaced by new systems, data and program conversions are required. Since there are many software systems are developed by using the flat file approach and/or old database models, database system reengineering can be regarded as an important development for coping with the ever changing situation of an organisation. However, database reengineering is a very complicated process which requires a good coordination of four major elements, namely people, process, organisation and technology. This paper presents a methodology for managing database reengineering projects.
