Reverse Engineering of Data

Interest in reverse engineering is growing as organizations attempt to reengineer existing systems instead of replacing them. When a system is reverse engineered, it is examined, documented, modeled, analyzed, and understood in order to better inform subsequent efforts. Of additional value, the reverse engineering analysis outputs can being reused as a source of enterprise architecture components. Since successful systems reengineering (SR) depends on effective reverse engineering, it (reverse engineering) is viewed as a critical part of SR.
