    • repositories preservation infrastructure interoperability
    •  
    • Interoperability - a wider view
      • Interoperability isn’t just metadata, APIs and wire protocols
      • It’s policies, comparability and markets
      • People want to compare services
      • We need trust in transferability
    • An external perspective
      • None of us are perfect
      • Without oversight, standards can slip
      • External perspectives encourage improvement
      • Audit formalises this
    •  
    • Repository Audit Mechanisms
      • TRAC
      • DRAMBORA
      • NESTOR
      • DINI

    • But what about interoperability?
      • Easier to please auditors when using standards
      • Easier to compare A with B
      • Audits themselves - in standard form - allow consumers, depositors to compare
      • Is A better value/more trustworthy/more secure/more open than B?
    • An trivial example
      • What is the likelihood that you will lose 1 bit in X years ?
      • What confidence limits apply to that number ?
    • Not so trivial
      • What is the energy cost of preserving X bits over Y years ?
      • Do you do an environmental audit ?
      • Are you certified against recognised standards ?
    • Interoperable policies
      • I give you content - we have an agreement
      • Content is later transferred - merger, takeover, change of collection policy
      • Is my agreement transferred ?
      • Who do I sue ?
    • More on policies http://www.dlorg.eu/ https://workinggroups.wiki.dlorg.eu/index.php/Policy_Working_Group
    • Outsourcing
    •  
    • How does it help
      • Contracts, service level agreements, performance measures
      • Comparability is desirable
      • Interoperability - of a form - follows
      • Customers don’t like lock-in
      • Intelligent ones design it out - exit plans
