This workshop we will introduce attendees to a number of tools and techniques based on the approaches used for the delivery of the Jisc Research Data Shared Service (RDSS) project. RDSS delivered a new Software as a Service (SaaS) product to solve institutional research data management challenges at an national scale.
We will explore the product management and software engineering challenges faced during delivery of the new service and briefly introduce attendees to the challenges of research data management (RDM).
Using the story of RDSS we will take attendees through a number of techniques and tools, explaining the challenges and advantages of their use as well as providing hands on tutorials and guidance, including:
- Modelling the requirements of the system with UML.
- Complex research object modelling
- Using cloud services to create he system architecture needed to ensure interoperability between a number of research systems. These systems including Hyrax/Samvera, Figshare, Archviematica and Preservica.
- How to integrate scholarly communications systems, such as ORCiD into research systems.
- Message based integration and how to integrate repository, preservation, scholarly communications and external research and administrative systems with RDSS.
- A tutorial on how to build a message based adaptor.
