An AESOPIAN project has developed server demonstrator for telematics, which can both secure access to a best practices database and provide contributions to it. Shared learning and experiences from a "best practices" website can be very beneficial. But too often there is a one-way flow of information and little effort is made to build an ongoing relationship with visitors to a site. However, this project database is available at: URL: http://nt3.fundesco.es/aesopian The AESOPIAN (Awareness of European Solutions and best Practices for telematics Applications) project contains information on specific areas of core competence required by those undertaking telematics applications projects, such as: - Service Management; - Procurement; - Environment Management; - Configuration Management; - Standards and Specifications Management; - Requirements Engineering; - Value-Chain Management; - Software Process Management. Within each area there are questions, explanations and best practices based upon the experiences of those undertaking Third and Fourth Framework Programme telematics projects. There are also links to other best practices websites and electronic forms are provided which visitors can use to record their own best practice experiences if they are willing to share them. To encourage participation there is an annual award for the "Winning best practice", although the selection criteria to be employed are not disclosed.
