UCT IDR costing evaluation
datasetposted on 30.01.2017 by Kayleigh Lino, Erika Mias
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
This costing report provides the estimated costs of implementing and maintaining different repository solutions (both SaaS and local open source) for a research data repository service at UCT.
The report is based on quotes and salaries at the time of evaluation (December 2016). Quotes were received by UCT staff and salaries are based on UCT remuneration ranges. The report should therefore not be used to inform the implementation of a repository at any other institution, but is made available for reference only.
