25 Jan 2016

Reagan added definitions (see attachd) to the list generated by Peter and added a few more terms. He could not resist adding computer actionable definitions for information, knowledge, and wisdom.

He also added three more spread sheets with:
99 tasks that need to be done for data management applications
118 operations performed when executing the tasks
50 state information attributes modified or used by the operations

This is a summary across six types of data management applications: data centers (the RDA study), data sharing, data publication, data preservation, management of protected data, and NSF data management plans.

The lists are a subset of the terms used in the iRODS data grid which has more that 300 identified operations and more than 300 identified persistent state information attributes.
