SHAMAN will deliver a next-generation Digital Preservation framework, with three prototypical applications. These exemplary cases will aim at proving the viability, advantages and potential impacts of taking-up the new technology derived from SHAMAN.
The three prototype application solutions will be built as a multilayer model on service oriented architecture, on the basis of integrating their requirements and adopt, remodel and verify SHAMAN framework architecture environment, in the domains of:
-Scientific publishing and parliamentary archives
-Industrial design and engineering
Successful completion of the project will be measured by delivering the SHAMAN infrastructure and services which will not only enable the long-term preservation of digital content, but will also improve access and reuse of this content through the exploration of a rule-driven approach which can be used to support preservation management policies and micro-services.
R&D within SHAMAN builds on and significantly extends the current state-of-the-art for digital preservation projects, which are metadata-driven; SHAMAN will support standard services to be executed across independently managed computational and storage resources.
Finally, SHAMAN will secure Scientific and Industrial Dissemination and Exploitation, aimed at fostering Outreach and Take-Up of its results both on commercial and non-commercial bases.
