Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Way too many unknowns to give a valid answer. What are the types of systems and applications involved? What platforms and operating systems do they run on? What type of network do they run on? Some may just not be compatible and not be able to interface without manual coding and this could take time depending on how involved. You best bet is to talk with your technical staff and see why it not has already been done. Most places will try to keep their costs down in order to purchase new equipment to replace obsolete hardware and software.  Sometime the best solution may cost money and that is why these fixes do not get done. The ROI for the new hardware/software may not justify the expense.

    As a CIO, I wouldn't. Instead, I'd hire appropriate staff and have them do it.

    The question has no technical requirements that could guide a response. After nearly 50 years, I've never seen a system that did not have some/many programs that didn't "interface" with many others. It's rare that they even need to.

    Without knowing specific interface requirements, there's no rational answer.

    What type of problems are there? What did it mean, "not interfacing with others"? What interfaces are there that you did not want to interact?
