Led by Frank Upward.
A common industry definition of cloud computing is that it involves enabling information resources to be ‘rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction’. Yet many web applications which require a lot of analytical effort in order to set up suitable metadata structures, make allowances for interactive decisions based on risk during the course of our transactions and address privacy, audit, and access issues. In this workshop we will begin writing a case study in which an organization harnesses metadata research and agile computing techniques to form an applications based ‘postcustodial’ archive. We will use recordkeeping informatics and strategies, tactics and structures directed at doing the hard work involved in forming a digital archive.
