The BEXIS 2 data management platform – current status and future plans

Roman Gerlach

This presentation will provide a status update on the development of the BEXIS 2 Data Management Platform. We will highlight some recently developed features and capabilities, but also discuss our next steps and plans. Besides the features we will have a brief look at the software development process and how to participate.

BEXIS 2 is the completely redesigned and refactored successor of the earlier Biodiversity Exploratories Information System (BExIS). The BEXIS 2 system is based on a newly designed architecture to be more generic and meet modern software standards in terms of scalability, modularity and interoperability. Following the data-life-cycle concept BEXIS 2 contains features for data collection, discovery, dissemination, integration, quality assurance and research planning.
