A DataSnap server is one option, you can write an ISAPI DLL, that's another. You can run either on an IIS server, so I suggest you investigate both options and decide from there. It depends on what you want to provide, how do you want your data to be accessible to others?
In 2004, I used Delphi 7 when I developed an ISAPI application. I stayed away from the IntraWeb components and went with components from Developer's Express. I was very impressed with their level of customer service. My back end was SQL Server and the ISAPI was on an windows server machine running IIS. I would suggest that you possibly investigate that route.... going with DevExpress....
