This project builds on work within the JISC e-Framework culminating in the flexible service delivery concept and programme. The project attacks institutional inertia in large monolithic systems and shows that hosting applications in the 'cloud' and using SOA can offer new flexibility for institutions to better match business need with system availability. It will explore new ways for IT to support business processes and to respond quickly to rapidly changing business imperatives.
The project activities included a mapping of Unit4's ACMS product data structures to XCRI r1.0. A web service to output XCRI r1.0 data was created.
