RDA 8th Plenary Joint meeting: IG Data Fabric, WG RDA/WDS Publishing Data Workflows

Meeting title Joint Session on Data Workflows between Publishing Workflows WG and DFIG


IG Data Fabric

WG RDA/WDS Publishing Data Workflows


Please give a brief introduction describing the activities and scope of the group(s)

In Tokyo a first discussion started between experts from Publication Workflow WG (PWWG) and DFIG to identify overlaps and possibilities of synergies. In the meantime further discussions took place and a first analysis of documents shows that there is common interest, much overlap in the goals and also in the directions one would have to take. Every group discusses specific aspects coming from different backgrounds and this will continue, but frequent cross-fertilisation is recommended. Also the TAB Landscape Overview work addressed the overlap between these groups and its insights will be discussed as well.
