On March 5th, 2014 PREFORMA project organised a workshop in Brussels targeted to memory institutions to agree on the joint user model for tendering the PREFORMA conformance checker.
This workshop was organised as part of the Open Dialogue between the memory institutions and the technology providers who develop the software. The memory institutions will define the functional requirements of the tender based on the outcome of the Open dialogue.
During the workshop several topics have been discussed: the various use cases to be taken into consideration for the conformance checking, the joint user model, the deployment options for the tools developed by the suppliers, the different formats and standards to be taken into account and the list of requirements for each media type.
The outcomes of this discussion will be soon available on the PREFORMA project website.
