Alchemy system can convert PC files into Web gold

Information Management Research Inc. has Web-enabled its document database manager,
which handles large volumes of public records at several government sites.

The Englewood, Colo., company designed the Alchemy Web Server and Alchemy 6.0 to be set
up quickly without custom coding for relational database and storage devices.

The Alchemy Web server is compatible with Microsoft Windows NT, Microsoft Internet
Information Server and Microsoft Active Server Pages. Alchemy 6.0, the document database
manager, runs under NT.

The application converts diverse PC file formats, including image, Adobe Acrobat,
Microsoft Office, computer-aided design and computer output-to-laser disk files, directly
into Hypertext Markup Language format.

Alchemy can use any combination of CD-ROM, CD-rewritable, digital video disk,
magneto-optical, Iomega Jaz, RAID or disk-to-tape storage devices.

The latest release of IMR’s electronic archive has an Open Database Connectivity
driver that opens up the Alchemy document database to any ODBC application.

The price of a complete Web-enabled Alchemy system is about $175 per user for a
100-user license, IMR officials said.
