Facets of the Data Discovery process

For Discussion:

Elements of a Data Discovery system

The DESIRE model:

  1. The Data itself - how it's described and made available for discovery
  2. Data/metadata Enrichment (whether automated or manually curated)
  3. Search mechanism:  crawling/harvesting/indexing metadata, search algorithms, relevancy ranking
  4. User Intent, user characterization, personalization of search process
  5. Rendering/user interface: how a user interacts with search mechanism (include APIs for machine discovery?)
  6. Evaluation of search success, metrics, gauging impact
