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.
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.
