1.5 Service activities

1.5.1      Service - overall strategy

After consortium agreement of the full project strategy (1st milestone), service support will be provided to BITrum glossary since it represents the module under current operation with higher impacts (WP 2.5). The service provision and management of this module –including content provision by the involved institutions- might ensure higher degrees of interoperability, scientific usability and impacts of the infrastructure after system launches.

Right after the specialised Content Management System of the domusBITae Gate is concluded (WP 3.1.b) some representative communities (at least, SCII, UTI, SISI, BITrum), will be dumped into the system (as part of the service activities WP 2.1.a) aimed at an early modular deployment and assessment of integrated services, and early service provision to the involved communities (4th milestone). Subsequently the modules completed will be deployed for progressive provision of services before and after the launch of the domusBITae initial full version (5th milestone). Services will be provided to the gathered community during a first trial phase, which will be followed –in parallel to service provision– by the second development phase (WP. 3.1 to 3.5). In correspondence to the progressive completion of the involved modules the operating services will be upgraded to ensure an step by step progressive integration of the upgraded system (WP 2.1 to 2.5). After completion of this process the advanced version will be launched (7th milestone) and disseminated, while system service will be supported under the project scope until the end of trial services (8th milestone).

1.5.2      Timing of Working Plan – Service activities

To deploy the described strategy the work is planned to be split in the following working packages to be carried out in the schedule depicted in the Gantt chart, where mentioned milestones are shown:

WP-2.1:   domusBITae Gate deployment & management

WP-2.2:   Directory deployment and management

WP-2.3:   Repository deployment and management

WP-2.4:   Collaborative & Educational (C&E) Tools deployment and management

WP-2.5:   Glossary deployment and management
