I cribbed the following from a paper at http://www.european-patent-office.org/epidos/conf/patlib2003/pdf/pres/allen_e.pdf. I altered project specific language to make it more general. "The database roadmap project will produce, test and rollout a paper and web-based product which will enable employees to identify and find information generated by our systems that can help them in their innovative activities. The roadmap will enable users to categorise their activities and consequently their information needs and guide them to appropriate databases, web-based help, and other sources of advice and expertise. The roadmap will guide users to the destination (perhaps to answers to their questions) but will also point out other features (sources of information and advice) en route." I was involved with a network roadmap project once. Basically, mapping the bandwidth required for every piece of computer equipment in the Dept. of Labor back in 1986. It might be worthwhile to map users/applications to databases, though you'd need to define "bandwidth" in that context. Sounds like fun. Congratulations. -- http://www.freelists.org/webpage/oracle-l
