    It will take a while before this functionality is widely available in the UK but if each MIS had an agent which supported it, it would make extracting data from any MIS a far easier task.
    Still a sledge hammer for some tasks however.

    If you view your MIS as the single source of information then it could be but give that the MIS is not the single source of information is not a sledge hammer to crack a nut. You are looking at the issue from a point to point view, how to i get information from SIMS.net to My in house app, when really it should be viewed as how i can get information from your MIS, Assessment Program, Attendance Program, VLE to display in my in house app!
