My firm has just purchased another company, and I have been placed in charge of the process of absorbing the IT operations into the other company. While my company has largely standardized on a .NET platform, the new purchase uses a mix of COM/COM+, Java Beans, and older
Visual Basic 6 applications. The staff of the purchased company has no
.NET experience, but they cannot be dismissed at this time, as they are the
only ones who really understand how the applications in their company work. How would I go about integrating their operations with My Company? Give at least four examples and explain your choices.
