This article describes our approach of building Reusable
Information Objects, based on presently used data in
different Information Systems in the University of
Technology, Jamaica. Based on Object-Oriented ideas, we
are able to create and maintain these objects as an
Information Basis for any other Systems that can be
developed. Instantiations of these objects allow generating
new Information Systems that don’t modify this Basis,
which is critical for other systems. Flexibility and
customization of new Information Systems which use the
basic data are the main benefits of that approach.
