Welcome to the DAPA Data Management Section. This section has been designed to help you understand what resources DAPA offers. What to do in order to facilitate you work.
What we need?
Three main pillars
- Centralized: Easier control of data, prevents data inconsistency, facilitates the exchange of information and keep data organized.
- Secure: Suitable repository. Keep confidenciality, availability and integrity of the information; allow reuse of data. Constant backups procedures.
Data + metadata = Context
- Updated: Necesary tool for collaborative work, facilitate administrative tasks and correct use of the information’s versioning.
To help create the enabling environment for Open Access implementation.
Data Management System
Processing servers: Designed for major computing needs, increasing computer processing power available.
Development Environments: DAPA offers testing environment. Options: in the cloud (AWS instance), in DAPA-CIAT (dedicated server) and in IT Unit-CIAT (virtual instance).
Backups: The information stored in dapadfs (main storage system) is backed with a certain periodicity. The completed projects will be delivered to CIAT for institutional memory.
Metadata and Documentation: It is highly recommended to document and standarize your information since the begining (New Project*).
