Data Futures: The development phases
The Data Futures programme includes a number of key checkpoints and phases that will be completed, along with contributory, or associated, projects that inform and steer the progress. These projects answer a specific question or inform an area of understanding.
The Output (including Coding manual (Data Futures) v1.0.0) from the Detailed design phase is now available. The phase was completed in August 2017 and was informed by the Collection design project.
This stage is ongoing and includes the Alpha and Beta phases and the Alpha pilot. Throughout this period, additional guidance and supporting resources will be released.
During the Alpha phase the output from Detailed design will be built and developed. This phase will also include an Alpha pilot to help further refine the model.
The Beta phase is yet to begin. We will be looking for HE providers to get involved in this phase in the near future.
Status: Next phase
