1.30 – 2.00: Pauline Wilcox and Hilary Dexter, eLRC, University of Manchester: JISC Framework Scoping Study and Service Oriented Architecture
The first part of the talk will provide a brief overview of the work recently undertaken as part of the JISC Framework Scoping Study (FSS), noting key outcomes of interest to Enterprise SIG members. A key part of this study was to review the services and projects offered by JISC across the e-Learning, e-Research and Information Environment frameworks. This information gathered has been organised into a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). The main aim of this study was to help JISC understand what it has got *now* with a view to supporting future planning, for example, to identify areas of duplication as well as areas where there is a shortfall of services at present.
The second part of the talk will look at how the SOA approach taken in this study aligns with the work that has been done by Scott Wilson, Kerry Blinco and Daniel Rehak (specifically their paper Service Oriented Frameworks: Modelling the infrastructure for the next generation of e-Learning Systems).
2.00 – 2.15: Questions

SWEET.Net is a six month project funded as part of the JISC ELF (e-Learning Framework Programme).
