EXTEND LEISURE CARD TO ACCESS MORE THAN ONE DATABASE
Posted on 2003-11-23
I have been asked this question;
Imagine that you are a computing professional asked to advise a local authority. This local authority currently offers a ' leisure card ' which is used for access to sports facilities. It is now considering extending the use of the card other services, for example libraries and housing. The card will be used in conjunction with a central database holding core personal information such as name and address of the card-holder. This central database will in turn link to other relevant database, such as those of the library service and the housing department, which will be able to access the core information on the central database. Write a report(2000 wr) for the local authority outlining the issues which they should take into consideration in deciding whether or not to take this idea forward.
1- Should this authority take this idea or not and why?
2- where can i find a good references about this subject( name books and website if you can).
thank you very much
