The most compelling advantage of converting legacy data into a relationaldatabase management system (RDBMS) is the improved accessibility of thedata. There now is a tremendous selection of tools and applicationdevelopment systems for accessing a RDBMS. You can create betterinterfaces to your data, use the latest data warehousing and data miningtools, publish data on the Internet, provide access from disparateinterfaces, and much more.
