Therefore, it is no surprise that each environment is a separate and apart from the other in ways such as a technical, an organizational, a structural, and a functional. See the possibilities, if the two worlds were able to be connected in an effective and meaningful way. Visualize the new types of systems that could be built and the development to existing systems. However, see the amazing benefits to be gained if the technical, organizational, structural and useful barriers were to the disappear. Works Cited • Database Management Concepts By Joseph J.
