Archiving under control

  • Maintain your E-WorkBook to remove outdated information
  • Control access to older information and projects with a change in project status
  • Connect with Project Lifecycle Tools
  • Publish Data to Document Management Systems and Data Warehouses

The a-tune Archive Manager provides an integrated and consistent suite of capabilities which are used to implement customer business rules to manage and archive experiments within the E-WorkBook suite. The meaning of Archive is unique to each enterprise and we provide the full range of archive options including integration with Project Lifecycle tools to align the E-WorkBook status with project status. Publish capability is offered as a stand-alone function or as a part of the Archive solution.

This Product Provides

  • An Archive function for E-WorkBook.
  • The meaning of “Archive” is defined with the customer. Core functionality permits a range of archive features including:

    • Extract of published PDFs and other data into an archive area or protected area within E-WorkBook or document management system
    • Modification of access rights and experiment availability based on project status (for example “cancelled” or “completed”)

  • Hierarchy tidy up. Archive of data from old experiments and investigations which are no longer active
  • An automated process to extract data from the E-WorkBook suite and deliver it, in a stand-ard XML format to the target system
  • Full access to all data in the E-WorkBook including text in PDF files, results data (through the IDBS Generic Transform) and security information
  • Export of results to Document Management systems, e.g. Documentum and MS SharePoint
  • Transfer using a single portable XML format

The Archive and Publisher products use a common architecture and therefore can work together to provide the connection between E-WorkBook and other enterprise business systems.
