A first architecture document for DITAS focusing on (1) market analysis, (2) an update to the state of the art as the base for the project, (3) an initial business requirements, (4) a high-level architecture for the project, and (5) high-level verification and validation approach

Execution environment architecture design

This deliverable will provide the architecture design of all components that consists WP4. It will describe analytically their functionalities, the exposed APIs for interacting and exchanging information internally, and the external APIs regarding how they interact with the other technical WPs.

Final case studies validation report

This deliverable will report the usage of the DITAS framework in its second iteration in the two case of studies of the project: Industry 4.0 and eHealth. It will include a lessons learnt section together with the benefits of DITAS with other alternative solutions, if any.

DITAS Data Management – second release

Revised version of the DITAS data management including a detailed definition of the dependency between the data utility and data movement strategies, cloud storage and security/privacy requirements and mechanisms.

DITAS Data Management – final release

Final version of the DITAS data management refined also with respect to the results of the adopted case studies.

Integration of DITAS and Cloud Testbed Final report

This deliverable includes the final report of the integration of all DITAS components after its second iteration together with their usage in the Cloud testbed. It will also report in the changes necessary to consider to enable DITAS in a Cloud facility or Cloud application.

DITAS Data Management – first release

Fundamentals of data management in DITAS including the main steps composing the data life-cycle with details of the data utility model. Initial set of data movement strategies, cloud storage mechanisms, and security/privacy requirements and mechanisms will be included.

Specification of Integration and Validation Testbed and Cloud Platform for DITAS

This deliverable will report in the selected integration platform strategy and continuous integration/devops strategy to build the DITAS platform together with the resources necessary to implement the Cloud Testbed in Task 5.2 to support both use cases reported in Task 5.3 and Task 5.4.

Data Virtualization SDK prototype (initial version)

This deliverable will provide the initial version of a working prototype of the Data Virtualization tools, along with its documentation.

Integration of DITAS and case studies validation report

This deliverable includes the integration and validation report of the first iteration of the DITAS framework. It also reports on the validation of the two use cases: Industry 4.0 and eHealth with DITAS. The outcomes of this will be employed as inputs for the second iteration of the project.

Data Virtualization architecture design

This deliverable will provide the architecture design of all components that consists WP3. It will describe analytically their functionalities, the exposed APIs for interacting and exchanging information internally, and the external APIs regarding how they interact with the other technical WPs.

Final DITAS architecture and validation approach

An updated architecture document that includes (1) update to market analysis, (2) update to the business requirements, (3) detailed project architecture, and (4) a detailed plan for verification and validation.

Data Virtualization SDK prototype

This deliverable will provide the final version of a working prototype of the Data Virtualization tools, along with its documentation.

Execution environment prototype (first release)

This deliverable describes the first working prototype of the execution environment mainly focused on the data monitoring and execution environment, with an initial draft of the analytics and movement selector.

Execution environment prototype (final release)

This deliverable describes the final version the execution environment where also data movement enactor and data analytics are fully integrated.
