The Securities and Exchange Commission is looking at new ways to use World Wide
Web technology to streamline agency operations as it prepares to upgrade its Internet
Fran Rowell, a computer specialist and webmaster for SEC's intranet, said the
commission has realized the importance of Web technology and plans to increase its use.
"Internet and intranet solutions are the way of the future. And by using that kind
of technology, we won't have to worry about learning different software," Rowell
said. "We can focus our attention on other areas."
SEC's Web site now receives about 500,000 hits a day and users download as much as 17G
of data daily, Rowell said.
