ALIGNED Webinar Series – Dacura

In the coming weeks, the ALIGNED project will be releasing five webinars on Engineering Agile Big Data Systems. The first of these, on Dacura, is now available.

The Dacura webinar provides an end-to-end overview of how Dacura has helped the Seshat Global History Databank build and improve their dataset, an ambitious project attempting to cover the whole of human history in greater detail than ever before. Helping the Seshat team migrate from manual Wiki-based systems into Dacura has allowed them to release their first public dataset to accompany a major research paper. You will see how ALIGNED tools can help at every step of the process, from extracting data from outside sources all the way through to publication. Check the video out below.

This video is the first in a series of five. It will be followed by videos on the following aspects of the ALIGNED project:

  • Re-engineering a complex relational database application at Wolters Kluwer
  • Managing Data for the NHS
  • Integrating semantic datasets into Enterprise Information Systems with PoolParty
  • Moving Data Validation Closer to the Source at Wolters Kluwer

Check back next Thursday, June 29th, for the next instalment. This will be “Re-engineering a complex relational database application at Wolters Kluwer”, which will cover how Wolters Kluwer have used ALIGNED tools to improve their JURION legal database. The other three webinar videos will be published during July and August.
