Area of Work

Deliverables and Outcomes

Work Spaces

  1. Two Bamboo Work Spaces and documentation for the operation of these work spaces by other institutions.
    1. HUBzero Work Space
    2. ECM Platform Work Space
    3. Tools and Services Registry, including integration with each of the above Work Spaces and with the Bamboo Services Platform.  APIs and documentation so that other environments and applications can share data with the registry.
    4. Work Spaces Phase 1 Assessment and Roadmap for Phase 2 (this will address the relationship of Work Spaces and Corpora Space)

Corpora Space Design

  1. Three to six white papers for Corpora Space Application Design
  2. One to two Corpora Space Applications proposals selected by the Bamboo Partners, including detailed design specifications

Scholarly Services

  1. Development of Scholarly Services deployed on the Services Platform
    1. PhiloLogic Services
    2. Ancient & Classical Studies / Perseus Services
    3. Proxied SEASR Analytics Services
    4. Prosopography Services
    5. Documentation of service descriptions, APIs and service contracts of listed scholarly services
    6. Carry out several adoption pilot projects in which existing applications use scholarly services and / or new applications are built with these services.
    7. Assessment of Phase 1 Scholarly Service development and plan for Phase 2 Scholarly Services development.

Services Platform

  1. Bamboo Services Platform v1.0 deployed in production mode
  2. Platform documentation, including set-up, configuration, tuning, and maintenance for developer- and integration/QA/production-instances
  3. Core, and utility services, including documented service descriptions, APIs, and service contracts
  4. Assessment of phase 1 Services Platform and plan for phase 2 platform development and deployment

Services Lifecycle

  1. Software Development Kit and supporting documentation for use by Partners and other software developers
  2. v0.7 draft of Services Lifecycle Documentation
  3. Assessment of Shared Services Lifecycle and Roadmap for phase 2

Collections Interoperability

  1. v1.0 Collections Interoperability Standards Profile for Project Bamboo
  2. Documented Collections Interoperability services deployed on the Bamboo Services Platform
  3. List of prioritized Collections to target for Collections Interoperability Standards adoption
  4. Adoption of Collections Interoperability Standards Profile by one or more prioritized collections
  5. Assessment of Collections Interoperability development and roadmap for Phase 2 development

In each of the four areas of work we will carry out assessment activities as part of project evaluation. We summarize these evaluation activities in section 11, “Reporting and Evaluation.”

11. Reporting and Evaluation

[...]

Evaluation of this project will include external review of the architecture, service design, and code for major technical deliverables in the project. Project Bamboo’s Technical Advisory Committee will recommend individuals and/or firms to carry out this external review; the Project Executive Group will select the reviewers.[1|#_ftn1]

In addition to this external review, we have built evaluation activity into the ongoing work, as summarized below.  These activities are drawn from the summary of phase 1 project deliverables in section 4.5, above; and from the detailed work plan of section 13, below.
