Closing the Information Gap: PIRE, a portable, open source information retrieval tool

by Chen, Patrick

Abstract (Summary)
In the world of Database Management, there are many tiers of complexity and financial expenditure that any one organization may choose to commit to the storage and manipulation of data. While Standards such as SQL have helped standardize the storage and retrieval of information, the ability of the user to access and manipulate data is an area of a great deal of customization and expense depending on the industry. As a result, while it can be relatively inexpensive to set up storage for a database, it can be very expensive and time consuming to create an user interface for the use of said data. This project seeks to create an open-source and easily configurable web interface for simple object-based research. With this tool, users should be able to quickly create a unique map for any individual database which will enable the script to provide easy and exhaustive research.
