      • The online world is changing. It is the distributed internet…
      • the more we learn about it; and the more we engage with it now, the healthier we will be in the medium and long term future…
      • the underlying proposition for internet users, including all our readers, is phenomenally strong: the content you want, when you want it, where you want it.”
      • (Simon Waldman, Director of Digital Publishing, The Guardian)

        • Big Picture:
        • Meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
        • For projects sustainability is:
        • A product or process that can be maintained over a long period of time, especially after grant monies disappear, that is beneficial to stakeholders & the host institution.
    • 14. Sustainability Planning

      • There are generally 3 things a digital project desires:
        • Quick results (fast is GOOD )
        • Achieved for a low cost (expensive is BAD )
        • Excellence achieved (must not be UGLY )
      • In reality, the vast majority of projects can have no more than 2 of these!
    • 18. 1 st Top Tip for Success
      • Planning and communication are essential!

        • 17% - failure to define objectives

        • 14% - incorrect technology & project size Figures courtesy of KPMG
    • 19. 2 nd Top Tip for Success

      • Quote from a technology magazine: Product Manuals: “introduce you to religion through a series of parables. Possibly. We haven’t read them, as we are men.”
      • A huge amount of failure and mis-communication can be avoided by reading the manuals or documentation
    • 23. 6 th Top Tip for Success
      • Have a vision!
