Institutions around the world face nowadays major challenges regarding the management of their data. It is often striking to see the discrepancies that exist between solutions to store data into complex databases, solutions to harvest and ingest new documents and solutions to visualise them in a user-friendly way. However, few platforms have the ability to merge those three aspects into a comprehensive and easy-to-use ecosystem.
The workshop will provide an interactive demo of the open source repository PolarisOS. We will present how we have built upon state-of-the-art technologies to deliver a robust and scalable solution that combines an open data repository powered by Elasticsearch, a powerful tool for harvesting, normalizing and ingesting data and a modern user interface based on the latest web technologies.
PolarisOS is a fully-configurable platform that allows all stakeholders to:
1. Build an institutional open repository (IOR) without IT skills
2. Retrieve all kinds of data (structured, unstructured) and structure, clean and visualize it
3. Integrate the IOR with existing internal/external systems, open/proprietary databases
4. Encourage/help researchers to deposit articles into an IOR
