Providence: Cataloguing and Data/media Management Application

README: Providence version 1.7.17

About CollectiveAccess

CollectiveAccess is a web-based suite of applications providing a framework for management, description, and discovery of complex digital and physical collections in museum, archival, and research contexts. It is comprised of two applications. Providence is the “back-end” cataloging component of CollectiveAccess. It is highly configurable and supports a variety of metadata standards, data types, and media formats. Pawtucket2 is CollectiveAccess' general purpose public-access publishing tool. It provides an easy way to create web sites around data managed with Providence. (You can learn more about Pawtucket2 at https://github.com/collectiveaccess/pawtucket2)

CollectiveAccess is freely available under the open source GNU Public License version 3.

About CollectiveAccess 1.7.17

Version 1.7.17 is a maintenance release with these bug fixes and minor improvements:

  • Add option to display nested type hierarchies as indented list in menus rather than nested menus.
  • Fix fatal error in library checkout due to incorrect type checking in display template parser.

Note that this version is not yet compatible with PHP version 8. Please use versions 7.3 or 7.4.

Installation

First make sure your server meets all of the requirements. Then follow the installation instructions.

Updating from a previous version

NOTE: The update process is relatively safe and rarely, if ever, causes data loss. That said BACKUP YOUR EXISTING DATABASE AND CONFIGURATION prior to updating. You almost certainly will not need the backup, but if you do you'll be glad it's there.

To update, decompress the CollectiveAccess Providence 1.7.17 tar.gz or zip file and replace the files in your existing installation with those in the update. Take care to preserve your media directory (media/), local configuration directory (app/conf/local/), any local print templates (app/printTemplates/) and your setup.php file.

If you are updating from a version prior to 1.7, you must recreate your existing setup.php as the format has changed. Rename the existing setup.php to setup.php-old and copy the version 1.7.17 setup.php template in setup.php-dist to setup.php. Edit this file with your database login information, system name and other basic settings. You can reuse the settings in your existing setup.php file as-is. Only the format of setup.php has changed. If you are updating from version 1.7.x you do not need to change your setup.php file.

Once the updated files are in place navigate in your web browser to the login screen. You will see this message:

Your database is out-of-date. Please install all schema migrations starting with migration #xxx. Click here to automatically apply the required updates.

The migration number may vary depending upon the version you're upgrading from. Click on the here link to begin the database update process.

Version 1.7 introduced zoomable page media for multipage documents such as PDFs, Microsoft Word or Powerpoint. Systems migrated from pre-1.7 versions of CollectiveAccess will not have these zoomable media versions available causing the built-in document viewer to fail. If your system includes multipage documents you should regenerate the media using the command-line caUtils utility in support/bin. The command to run (assuming your current working directory is support/) is:

bin/caUtils reprocess-media 

Be sure to run it as a user that has write permissions on all media. You do not need to reprocess media if you are updating from a 1.7.x system.

Installing development versions

The latest development version is always available in the develop branch (https://github.com/collectiveaccess/providence/tree/develop). Other feature-specific development versions are in branches prefixed with dev/. To install a development branch follow these steps:

  1. clone this repository into the location where you wish it to run using git clone https://github.com/collectiveaccess/providence.
  2. by default, the newly cloned repository will use the main branch, which contains code for the current release. Choose the develop branch by running from within the cloned repository git checkout develop.
  3. install the PHP package manager Composer if you do not already have it installed on your server.
  4. run composer from the root of the cloned repository with composer.phar install. This will download and install all required 3rd party software libraries.
  5. follow the release version installation instructions to complete the installation.

Your Data Architecture: Simple Best Practices for Your Data Strategy

If you accumulate data on which you base your decision-making as an organization, you should probably think about your data architecture and possible best practices.

If you accumulate data on which you base your decision-making as an organization, you most probably need to think about your data architecture and consider possible best practices. Gaining a competitive edge, remaining customer-centric to the greatest extent possible, and streamlining processes to get on-the-button outcomes can all be traced back to an organization’s capacity to build a future-ready data architecture.

In what follows, we offer a short overview of the overarching capabilities of data architecture. These include user-centricity, elasticity, robustness, and the capacity to ensure the seamless flow of data at all times. Added to these are automation enablement, plus security and data governance considerations. These points from our checklist for what we perceive to be an anticipatory analytics ecosystem.

Getting Started With Data Lakes

Frameworks for Efficient Enterprise Analytics

The opportunities big data offers also come with very real challenges that many organizations are facing today. Often, it’s finding the most cost-effective, scalable way to store and process boundless volumes of data in multiple formats that come from a growing number of sources. Then organizations need the analytical capabilities and flexibility to turn this data into insights that can meet their specific business objectives.

This Refcard dives into how a data lake helps tackle these challenges at both ends — from its enhanced architecture that’s designed for efficient data ingestion, storage, and management to its advanced analytics functionality and performance flexibility. You’ll also explore key benefits and common use cases.

Introduction

As technology continues to evolve with new data sources, such as IoT sensors and social media churning out large volumes of data, there has never been a better time to discuss the possibilities and challenges of managing such data for varying analytical insights. In this Refcard, we dig deep into how data lakes solve the problem of storing and processing enormous amounts of data. While doing so, we also explore the benefits of data lakes, their use cases, and how they differ from data warehouses (DWHs).


This is a preview of the Getting Started With Data Lakes Refcard. To read the entire Refcard, please download the PDF from the link above.
