[ contact / participants ]


Objectives and Approach

The aim of TOOTSI is to design and implement a set of software tools for applications dealing with remote online services (eg Yellow Pages, business information, library services, and data banks of all kinds). The type of service being considered includes online information services in the European environment. The target user group addressed is the business community.

These tools are meant to support the designer in efficiently designing and implementing, at the end-user level, interfaces with the following features:

In addition, special integration techniques will need to be used, as the common framework will be set up without requiring any modifications to the native languages and interfaces of the remote services, due to their extreme heterogeneity and the high number of different service providers.

Exploitation

Most of the partners intend to exploit the results according to their specific area of interest. In particular SARITEL, Telesystems and INFOTAP (already with a strong involvement and experience in the field) intend to improve their information services by incorporating the output from TOOTSI in their marketing plans, while software houses will include parts of the results as extension of their products and implement vertical applications.
