TIMBUS (Digital Preservation for Timeless Business Processes and Services)
TIMBUS (Digital Preservation for Timeless Business Processes and Services) is an interdisciplinary research project promoted by the Commission of the European Union and a part of the Seventh Framework Programme for research and technological development (FP7). Project partners are research institutes, NGOs as well as reputable companies (Project Coordination by SAP AG) from Germany, Portugal, Austria, Ireland and Great Britain. The main objective of TIMBUS is to extend the field of application of digital preservation from static data over the area of holistic and ongoing business processes. The research will consider the dependencies on third-party services, information and capabilities as for example in the cases of Cloud Computing, Software as a Service (SaaS) and Internet of Service (IoS). TIMBUS will explore the data filtering and data storage format for the activities and mechanisms that are considered necessary for a continuous access, retrieval and validation of current business processes. In the context of Business Continuity Management a new toolkit will be developed. This Legalities Lifecycle Management will present an innovative and comprehensive legal solution for long-term preservation of business processes and will establish the next generation Holistic Escrow Services. The Project starts in April 2011 and will have duration of 45 months. Our fundamental research results regarding Digital Preservation of Business Processes have been summarized in the book ´Legal Aspects of Digital Preservation` written by Thomas Hoeren, Barbara Kolany-Raiser, Silviya Yankova, Martin Hecheltjen and Konstantin Hobel.
The book has been published by Edward Elgar Publishing Ltd. in December 2013 and is also available as ebook (http://www.elgaronline.com/abstract/9781782546658.xml).
ISBN-10: 1782546650, ISBN-13: 978-1782546658.
