Dublin IrelandII. TIMBUS Training Day (Optional Event)
Tuesday, October 16, 2012
9:00am - 5:00pm

A free Training Day on Digital Preservation of Business Processes will take place on Tuesday, October 16 supported by the TIMBUS project. This full-day event is open to any interested party on first-come-first serve basis. 

  • Are you integrating your digital preservation activities with business continuity and enterprise risk management approaches?
  • Do you need to preserve more than data? 
  • Do you have information about computing environments, dependencies, policies, even process descriptions that are needed to understand your repository contents?

This TIMBUS event will discuss these issues with you. 

The TIMBUS project addresses the challenge of digital preservation of business processes and services to ensure their long-term continued access. TIMBUS analyses and recommends which aspects of a business process should be preserved and how to preserve them. It delivers methodologies and tools to capture and formalize business processes on both technical and organizational levels. This includes preservation of their underlying software infrastructure, virtualization of their hardware infrastructure and capture of dependencies on local and third-party services and information. This means that, in addition to technical preservation metadata, it draws on metadata standards that capture business processes, such as BPMN, and is identifying forms of supporting business documentation needed to redeploy processes and services.
