Most people are familiar with the use of the Internet to present information to website visitor and as a sales medium - Internet shopping. Less well known, but developing rapidly is the use of the Internet and its internal equivalent - the Intranet, as a means of supporting both internal and external applications.
The Internet also makes it possible to construct applications that can be used internally by staff over the office network and also be staff and other authorised people over the Internet - the Extranet. This means that Home workers, contractors and other remote workers can access the same applications as those in the office. You can even grant access to parts of the applications to your customers and/or suppliers.
Using the powerful scripting languages php or PERL, coupled with the data storage and manipulation capabilities of MySQL it is possible to construct complex applications that run over the network in a standard web browser.
Such applications can be protected from unauthorised access by the use of Secure Socket Layer (SSL), user certificates and encrypted passwords - the same technology you will be familiar with when using on-line banking and shopping services.
iimco can help define the application, design and program it, host the application and maintain and support it on behalf of your organisation.
