Well...
You need to make your application act as a translator or broker between clients and a data source or server.

Let's say you have bunch of DOS machines speaking NetBIOS and you need them to query an Oracle 8 database over TCP/IP.  
You can attempt to install the DOS Oracle drivers on every machine and a DOS IP stack or you can make your ORB (32-bit GUI (or whatever)) go to the database and return the result of the queries back to the DOS machines as they request it from the ORB.

But it mainly depends on the types of objects you need brokered.  There is also ORB software you can buy like ORBacus:
